Did You Know?

Trivia:
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 »

Absolutely sleazy and tasteless forefather of Nazi exploitation thats reasonably entertaining, 8 October 2007
Author: TheMarquisDeSuave from Worcester, MA

"Love Camp 7" is the forefather of the Nazi exploitation subgenre, a subgenre widely known as being both tasteless and often dull and repetitive. "Love Camp 7" isn't as extreme as later entries such as the "Ilsa" series (also produced by David Friedman), and remains one of the more watchable entries. Sure, its tasteless and sleazy, the kind of film you could only get away with at the time. Fortunately, its also campy and over-the-top that you can't take it seriously for one second. The lousy production values also prevent this from being as disturbing as it should have been.

Ultimately, this is for fans of vintage 60s exploitation. It very much resembles the typical David Friedman product, and I'll leave it up to the reader whether or not thats a good thing. Personally, I enjoy most of what I've seen from the man. This loads on the elements you've come to expect from him - lengthy sex scenes where the male participants keep their pants on, cheap sets that look completely like studio interiors, often funny dialog scenes with over-the-top acting. The most enjoyable aspect of the production is definitely Bob Cresse as the camp commandant. Its one of the most deliciously campy performances I've ever seen, and Cresse seems to be enjoying himself a lot in the role. "Love Camp 7" is admittedly tasteless, but don't take it too seriously. (5/10)
