Ilsa: She Wolf Of The SS (1975)

It is 1945. Ilsa (played by former Las Vegas showgirl Dyanne Thorne) is the buxom Nazi medical scientist who has an idea that women would make better soldiers than men because they have a higher pain tolerance.

So she decides to test her theory by subjecting female prisoners at Medical Camp 9 to various types of torture – infecting women with diseases, torturing them with electric shocks, whipping them, boiling them alive and putting maggots in their wounds – to test their tolerance for pain.

Ilsa also conducts private research for her own sadistic pleasure, forcing male prisoners to service her – and castrating them after having sex if they do not satisfy her cravings . . .

There is lots of nudity and graphic violence, as you would expect from a 1970s sexploitation film, although much of the violence is also left to the imagination.

Some of Ilsa was shot on sets at the MGM Culver City backlot which were originally used as Stalag 13 in the Hogan’s Heroes‘ TV series. Some of the sets were destroyed during filming.

Ilsa is an undisputed classic of the sexploitation/Nazisploitation genre. The Canadian-produced film spawned two official sequels – Ilsa: Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheikhs and Ilsa: Tigress of Siberia.
