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 »
Continuity: 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 (1975). But (according to the DVD commentary) the producers thought that nobody would remember so the film was made anyway.See more »

Ilsa´s back!, 13 May 2002
Author: DJ Inferno

Yeah, this first installment of the notorious Ilsa-series is a real goody! It is not as disturbing as "She Wolf" or "The Wicked Warden", but also not as campy as "Tigress" was! Fans of traditional adventure flicks might love it, too. The only difference is, that "Harem Keeper" features much more sex´n violence than you may find in popcorn movies à la "Indiana Jones" and friends..! If you´re a fan of the series you know what´s awaiting you! If not, prepare for a bundled load of sleazy erotic, some bizarre torture and lots of comic-like brutality! Once more Dyanne Thorne is over the top (A pity that she doesn´t take off her clothes more often..!), but also her two African helpers named "Satin" and "Velvet" are put on a show very well! And a film where Swedish supermodel Uschi Digard is casted can´t be that worse..! Exploitation cinema at its best!!!
