SS Experiment Love Camp, SS Experiment Camp | Review by Dan Taylor
whole "Nazi-film" genre boggles
my mind. There's the "Nazi comedy"
(WHICH WAY TO THE FRONT?, STALAG 17, THE
PRODUCERS), the "crush the Nazis"
war flick (WHERE EAGLES DARE, VON RYAN'S
EXPRESS), and even the "let's foil
the Nazis" escape flick (VICTORY, THE
But, it's the Nazi soft-core
porn genre that's the most amazing. It's
like producers sat around and thought, "Hey,
you know what'd make the most heinous episode
in modern history easier to take? TITS!"
The seemingly endless stream
of these movies (bondage catalogs received
at ERHQ frequently offer films with
Nazi sex-camp themes) obviously hit their
high point with the likes of the notorious
ILSA: SHE WOLF OF THE SS which, in retrospect,
isn't even that good of a movie.
Tonight's entry in the SS
Sleaze Sweepstakes comes from Axis co-conspirators
the Italians, lookin' to save a little face
for that whole world domination thang. As
if urinating on the corpse of their former
leader wasn't enough of an apology.
Director Sergio Garrone and
a cast of people whose names end in vowels
whip up a sweaty tale of sex experiments
(hence the more sensical alternate title),
beady-eyed Nazi guards, a dykey housefrau,
captive women (hence this title),
and German soldiers who look suspiciously
like oily Eye-talians.
There's also a couple sneakily
more interesting subplots going on, one
involving a doctor who isn't what he appears
to be, as well as a Nazi officer who gets
a penis transplant from the stud of the
soldier crop! Yikes...imagine the ratings
'Hogan's Hero's' could've gotten!
As expected, some of the flick's
cinematic highlights come thanks to the
atrocious dubbing and insane dialogue. "You
stink like a bunch of sheep" is up
there, but I'm partial to "With all
these beautiful women arriving I hope it's
a secret mission of a sexual nature. Heh,
It's no wonder the Krauts
lost the war if this is the kind
of nonsense they were concentrating on!
