Storyline

This is one of many so called Video Nasties about fictionalized World War 2 Nazi POW camp atrocities. A beautiful, nefarious senior female SS officer/doctor (Magall) creates a genetic, mutant human Beast (half man/half beast). The Beast is a rapacious, squat, mongoloid sex fiend which she uses to torture and molest female prisoners while the Nazis watch. The vertically challenged beast is kept on a diet of mega-aphrodisiacs. There is plenty of sadistic titillations, gore and nudity in this Nazi sub-genre exploitation flick. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Goofs

(at around 14 mins) A sex scene between the prostitute and the German soldier is interrupted by a phone call. When the two separate it is obvious that the soldier's private parts were actually "sheathed" the entire time. See more »

Quotes

German Soldier: Yes, of course, who wouldn't be excited?
Dr. Ellen Kratsch: [Hard slap to his face!] Spineless fools! A soldier of the Third Reich isn't supposed to get excited at any spectacle!
Dr. Ellen Kratsch: [Turns to female uniformed sidekick] And you, how'd you find the experiment?
Female Nazi sidekck: Excellent! I think you are a genius. You're wonderful, Dr. Kratsch.

SS Hell Camp
13 March 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

SS Hell Camp (1977)

** (out of 4)

Naziploitation film has a wacked out female German doctor performing experiments on beautiful naked women. This is considered one of the more graphic naxiploitation films but I've seen a couple that are a tad bit worse. Like the others this one here is full of naked women, rape, violence, some blood and various "Hail Hitler's". The biggest problem here, much like the others, is that there isn't enough camp and there's way too many disgusting scenes including one where a baby is taken from its mother, thrown into the air and then shot.
