NAZPLOITATION: Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS.

1974, USA. Filmed on the set of Hogan's Heroes, Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS starred Dyanne Thorne as "Ilsa," commandante of a Nazi Stalag. The maliciousness of her character was very loosely based on that of Ilse Koch. Ilsa conducts sadistic scientific experiments designed to demonstrate that women are more capable of enduring pain than men are, and therefore should be allowed to fight in the army. Ilsa is also portrayed as a buxom woman with a voracious sexual appetite for men. Every night she chooses another one of her male prisoners and rapes him. However, due to her insatiable hunger, she gets disappointed when her current victim eventually ejaculates, and promptly has him castrated. Only an American prisoner, who can withhold ejaculating, manages to use her weakness to his favor.

  1. Good post. I would have picked up the Ilsa DVD reissues, but the $30/each price tag was the main deterrent. Now they're out of print and would probably cost even more. Anyway, I checked out the Ilsa series via Netflix just before they went out of print. It's been quite a while, but I remember She-Wolf of the SS was the most intense. And actually kinda brutal for a '70s B-movie. Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks was the best in that it was the most watchable of the trilogy.

    Rasputin's has a ton of Naziploitation DVDs...but whether or not I want to bother checking most of them out is up for question.
