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 »

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.
Helga, She Wolf of Stilberg, 1978.
Directed by Patrice Rhomm.
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. »

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. »
