Set in a Nazi "Love Camp" that services the needs of front line officers. The video packaging claims that this film is based on fact, but the plot is so far fetched you would have a hard time believing that. Two young WAC officers go undercover as POW's in the prison camp hoping to get some information from a scientist that's being held there, before being sprung out by the French resistance. Unfortunately things go wrong with the break out and they end up overstaying their welcome and being subjected to the same indignities as the other inmates. Written by

The film was one of the original 72 video nasties in the UK and consequently banned. When the film was eventually submitted to the BBFC in 2002 it was refused a certificate with the statement as follows - 'The BBFC has refused a classification to the video of LOVE CAMP 7. LOVE CAMP 7 is an exploitation film set in a Nazi 'love camp' during the second World War. The film contains numerous scenes of women prisoners being abused, tortured and humiliated by their Nazi captors. Indeed the whole purpose of the work is to invite male viewers to relish the spectacle of naked women being humiliated for their titillation. LOVE CAMP 7 contains both eroticised depictions of sexual violence and repeated association of sex with restraint, pain, and humiliation. These sequences were in clear contravention of the Board's strict policy on depictions of sexual violence, which prohibits scenes that eroticise or endorse sexual assault. The possibility of cuts was considered. However, because the sexual violence runs throughout the work cutting was not considered to be a viable option'. See more »
Who knew the beginning of Nazisploitation could be so boring?
Love Camp 7, directed by Lee Frost, is an important film, as it began a sub-genre of exploitation cinema, suitably called Nazisploitation. Essentially, Frost gave birth to a much maligned sub-genre, with a good few of the films being persecuted in the UK and dubbed video nasties, this one included. These films generally contain copious amounts of nude women getting abused by Nazis, this one, however, is about a 'Love Camp' in which women are forced to please soldiers. Two young officers agree to go undercover to get information from a scientist being held in the camp, but alas things go wrong and the women are forced to endure indignities. Apparently this is based on a true story, but the film is so unrealistic and stupid you would have to be a fool to think this film is based on truth.
Quite frankly, this film is incredibly boring, and the 90 minute run time feels like 3 hours by the end. There is a wraparound plot where some guy in London is telling the story to another guy, it just meant that production values could be lower because the story could just be narrated rather than shown. Considering the film's reputation, there is very little blood or gore, and maybe a couple of scenes of torture e.g. girls holding buckets over their heads, the standard whipping, the 'seat of honour', but it all just seems like softcore porn than horror cinema. Even then, the film is not that graphic, and despite the fact the BBFC think the point of the film is for males to be aroused by the events taking place, it is the most unerotic film one could see.
The film scores points for Bob Cresse, who plays the cruel Commandant with relish, it is obvious he loved his role. Also, the final shootout is kinda cool, it also meant the movie ended which was a relief.
