Ilsa - She Wolf of the SS
One of the most infamous examples of the 1970s glut of sexy-Nazi movies is this gory, sleazy wallow in nauseating excess from director Don Edmonds. Busty Las Vegas showgirl Dyanne Thorne made her cult reputation in the title role as Ilsa, the sadistically depraved directress of Medical Camp 9. It is a memorable performance and was so popular that Thorne was resurrected in similar roles on three subsequent occasions. Despite its controversial themes, Ilsa, She-Wolf of the S.S. is much less of a death-camp movie than a mixture of women's prison thriller and escape film. No mention is ever… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Self-conscious Canadian-made camp of the bondage-and-discipline variety."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Thorne is undeniably hot, but too much of this is simply distasteful and highly unpleasant."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"Por um lado, é um daqueles filmes tão ruins que acabam divertindo. Por outro, não há como negar que, ao utilizar o Holocausto como base para uma narrativa de S(S)exploitation e gore, revela-se moralmente repulsivo."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Exploitation movies don't get better than this."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Despite a lot of competition, this is perhaps the most poisonous thing passing itself off as a movie that I've ever seen."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"The film works better as horror rather than sexploitation. If the blood-covered girls screaming don't do it, Thorne's chiseled face will."
‑ Christopher Null,
"More porn than actual adventure flick, this is worth the watch, regardless. If only, to see the electrified vibrator..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Unlike the worst of this wretched genre, at least the filmmakers don't seem to be enjoying their work--it's simply exploitation for money. That's hardly reason, however, for anyone but students of deviant psychology to view this."
