Did You Know?


As with Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS (1975) the film was refused a UK cinema certificate by the BBFC. It was finally passed fully uncut for DVD in 2013. See more »


Theoretically, this film could not have been made, as the main character Ilsa dies at the end of the first film Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS. But (according to the DVD commentary) the producers thought that nobody would remember so the film was made anyway. See more »

Ilsa the hard ball
16 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a bizarre sexploitation film. A mixture of torture soft porn, schlock horror and political intrigue.

The pneumatic Ilsa who takes out her bazookas for just a few scenes works for an Arab Sheik's harem cum human traffiking prison camp. She helps train the kidnapped girls, and gets them patched up after they are tortured. There is a scene where the girls are repaired from their injuries, where the girls are fattened up and where girls are tortured. You have a scene of body parts to show what happens if you try to escape. You have an auction scene where girls are sold off.

The American government send a naval officer get rid of the Sheik. You have the straight laced officer trying to teach the Sheikh of such things as democracy, human rights, fair trials, innocent until proved guilty. You can guess this was filmed in 1975, long before the 'War on Terror!

Ilsa falls for the naval officer and for her troubles, the Sheikh gets a leper to ravish her!

Dyanne Thorne has a hoot of a time playing the amoral Ilsa in a Nazi uniform aided and abetted by her two well oiled black henchwomen who truly can turn a man into a eunuch.

It really is curious, not enough horror, laughable torture scenes, too tame and cheesy to be sexy. It might had raised eyebrows almost 40 years ago for shock value. These days when you have American women getting kidnapped in Europe to be turned into Human Centipedes then you can see how much these kind of films have advanced since then!
