A superior exploitation flick, 16 February 2007
Author: DVD_Connoisseur from England

"Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS" is a superior exploitation film from director Don Edmonds. Despite being over 30 years old, the movie still has the ability to shock with its unblinking scenes of torture.

Dyanne Thorne is excellent in the title role as the mature SS officer, Ilsa. Thorne is chillingly ruthless and believable in the movie. In the ageist Hollywood scheme of things, it's refreshing to see an older lady cast in a lead role, particularly one involving some candid scenes.

"Ilsa", despite scenes of gratuitous violence and torture, is a fun and entertaining movie. The score is effective and the production, despite its limited budget, has a polished feel to it.

Gorehounds should find the scenes of bloodshed satisfactory but the violence may appear tame in the age of "August Underground" and "Guinea Pig" excesses. In terms of wartime experimentation, those desiring an insight into history would be best checking out Tun Fei Mou's excellent "Men Behind the Sun".

Leaner and meaner than "Salon Kitty", this is a fast-moving exploitation film that genre fans should enjoy. 9 out of 10.
