‘Elsa Fraulein SS’ DVD Review

Stars: Malisa Longo, Oliver Mathot, Patrizia Gori, Pamela Stanford, Claudine Beccarie, Erik Muller, Rudy Lenoir, Jean Le Boulbar, René Gaillard, Thierry Dufour| Written by Victor Hardia, Marius Lesoeur, Patrice Rhomm | Directed by Patrice Rhomm

As much as I adore exploitation cinema, I have to say that Nazisploitation is one of the least enjoyable branches in this crusty, inbred cinematic family tree. There are only a handful of titles I enjoy from the genre and yes, I think Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS is probably one of the most overrated pieces of exploitation cinema ever. I just find the genre to be lazy, repetitive and wide of the mark. Will Patrice Rhomm’s French offering – Elsa Fraulein SS – be one of the few exceptions? Unfortunately not.

So, the story is simple. Things aren’t going too well for the Third Reich. They’re getting a battering from Allied Forces causing

The Bottom Shelf: Frankenhooker, We Are The Flesh

Apr 28, 2017

Lucio Fulci, Frankenhooker and more in our round up of new horror Blu-rays and DVDs...

So, what’s your personal idea of hell? For this writer, it would almost certainly involve being chained down in the audience of an eternal live filming of Loose Women as Donald Trump waves a slice of tiger bread, forever just out of reach. Yours is likely to be similar, though it would have to be pretty grim indeed to come anywhere near Lucio Fulci’s 1981 career-best infernal vision and perhaps the definitive (obviously other than Little Nicky) cinematic depiction of eternal damnation, The Beyond.

DVD Review – Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg (1978)

Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg, 1978.

Directed by Patrice Rhomm.

Starring Patrizia Gori, Malisa Longo, Richard Allan, Dominique Aveline, and Jacques Marbeuf.

Synopsis:

A sadistic female prison warden’s latest inmate is the daughter of her government’s political enemy.

The second release from new imprint label Maison Rouge, Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg is a French title that veers a bit close to Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, possibly the best and certainly one of the most infamous Naziploitation movies to have crawled its way out of the prison slop tray. But while for all intents and purposes Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg is a straight lift of the Ilsa movies it does hold back on some of the grimier traits of those films, which makes it at once both a little easier to watch and also frustratingly bland in places when it could have been a whole lot more.

‘Helga: She Wolf of Stilberg’ DVD Review (Maison Rouge)

Stars: Patrizia Gori, Malisa Longo, Richard Allan, Dominique Aveline, Alban Ceray, Jacques Marbeuf, Jean Cherlian, Claude Janna, Olivier Mathot, Carmelo Petix | Written by H.L. Rostaine | Directed by Patrice Rohmm

Initially in charge of propaganda within an oppressive South African government, Helga (Malisa Longo) is demoted to being in charge of looking after a group of recently captured rebel female prisoners. She rules Chateau Stilberg with an iron fist whilst having an insatiable appetite for both prisoners and soldiers alike. Unfortunately for her, not all the prisoners want to play along and this naturally frustrates Helga on a regular basis. One of the prisoners under her watchful eye is the spunky and feisty Elisabeth Vogel (Patrizia Gori), daughter of a leftist lawyer who is seemingly the government’s biggest enemy and prime target. When Helga discovers this, she naturally intends to use young Elisabeth as bait, but eventually starts to fall for her.

The Italians Are Invading Chiller Theatre! Mini-Interviews with Ian McCulloch, Silvia Collatina & Michael Sopkiw!

The Italians Are Invading Chiller Theatre!

Fans of 1980s Italian exploitation have every reason to rejoice. In three weeks, Chiller Theatre in Parsippany, New Jersey will host the Italian Invasion, a gathering of a number of stars from the Fulci period. Mike Baronas has put together a great collection of guests that include: the 30th anniversary Zombie reunion with Ian McCulloch, Al Cliver, Richard Johnson, and old Worm Eye himself, Ottaviano Dell’acqua; Silvia Collatina and Giovanni Frezza, the child couple from Fulci’s House By The Cemetery; sci-fi/ horror director Luigi Cozzi; action star Michael Sopkiw; and Fulci actresses Malisa Longo and Zora Kerowa, the latter of Anthropophagus fame.

In anticipation of the Italian Invasion, Mike Baronas was gracious enough to grant me access to three of the Invasion guests for quick interviews. I thank Ian McCulloch, Silvia Collatina and Michael Sopkiw for taking the time to answer my questions.

Cat In The Brain (DVD Review)

  • Fangoria
Proving yet again that Lucio Fulci didn’t make movies like anybody else, his Cat In The Brain (a.k.a. Nightmare Concert, coming in a two-dvd set March 31 from Grindhouse) is a difficult movie to nail down into a single genre. With almost equal parts psychological horror, faux self-documentary awareness and enough stock footage from the director’s previous films to almost make this movie feel like a clip reel, it is both a self-reflexive statement on the illusion machine known as cinema and an intellectual fart unleashed in a crowded elevator.

From the opening scene of a literal cat tearing its way through Fulci’s fevered brain to the final shot of the maestro sailing away with a young beauty on a yacht christened the Perversion, this film is a head-scratcher. So while this would be a terrible place for a Fulci neophyte to begin exploring, for those
