Two female Army agents go undercover at a Nazi prison camp to get information from a scientist being held there.
This sleazy “women in prison” sexploitation film by director Lee Frost, inaugurating a new subgenre of Nazi prison camp sexploitation films, emerged in the era of greater permissiveness after the abolition of the Production Code in the late 60s. This film inspired other WIP films of the next decade, all taking the perversions to greater heights:
Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS (1975, Can.), the infamous first film in a series, bigger-budgeted
Salon Kitty (1976, It./W.Germ./Fr.), by director Tinto Brass
The Gestapo’s Last Orgy (1977, It.) (aka Last Orgy of the Third Reich)
Nazi Love Camp 27 (1977, It.) (aka La Svastica Nel Ventre)
Supposedly based on fact, the movie told of a Nazi concentration camp during WWII with a sadistic Commandant (the film’s producer Bob Cresse). The film’s marketing described the love camp: “A Place of Total Despair. All the Youthful Beauty of Europe Enslaved for the Pleasure of the Third Reich.” It was replete with full frontal female nudity (advertised as “the film that goes beyond X”).
The story told about an attempted rescue mission by two big-busted WAC officers, Lt. Grace Freeman (Kathy Williams) and Lt. Linda Harman (Maria Lease). The duo volunteered to become inmates, suffer the indignities and horrors of the prison, and help break Jewish prisoner – female scientist Dr. Martha Grossman out of the camp, and then be rescued by the French Resistance.
When new female prisoners were inducted into the prison, they were forced to strip, then medically inspected and humiliated. They were held down and spread-eagled, as the commandant sarcastically asked the newest inmate, before whipping her:
“What seems to be the matter, Ms. Strasburg. You don’t like your first day in Love Camp 7? I promise you, it’s going to be a lot worse than this. This is only a beginning.”
Its sensational content included orgies, bondage, S & M, rape, floggings (Linda was ferociously strung up by her wrists and whipped with the Commandant’s (Bob Cresse) riding crop), brutalities with a fire hose in the shower, and forced lesbianism, due to the fact that the inmates were made to be prostitutes for off-duty German officers of the Reich’s Front Line. They were also tortured and compelled to engage as unpaid sex slaves in perverse experiments and sexual depravity, including engaging in a nude, lesbian-love orgy for the officers’ entertainment.
The film ended with the inmates’ escape, as they brutally killed their captors by stabbing, blinding by broken glass, bashing by liquor bottle, and gunshot.
