Storyline

Siberia 1953: Ilsa is now working in a Gulag prison camp. Her mission is to "retrain the minds" of those who don't agree with the Communists. But prisoner, Yakurin, is more difficult than the others. Ilsa is not one to give up, though. "We will break you", she promises. However, when Stalin dies, the camp closes down, Ilsa and the guards kill the prisoners and leave. But Yakurin survives. In 1977, Yakurin is the coach of the Soviet boxing team, and on a visit in Montreal, he lets the boxers visit a brothel. The owner of the brothel is Ilsa and her colleagues are from the Gulag camp. Ilsa sees Yakurin and wants a second chance to finish "breaking" him, and Yakurin wants to get revenge... Written by Calle

Ilsa's final sleazy chapter…
26 April 2004 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Dyanne Thorne's last adventure as the busty shrew Ilsa takes place in Siberia anno 1953, during Stalin's dictatorship. She's the heartless and perverted commandant of `Gulag 14' where political prisoners are getting brainwashed and re-educated in favor of Stalin's ideas. When his reign abruptly ends, Ilsa and her closest companions are forced to flee to Canada. More than 20 years later – during the Montreal Olympics of 1976 – she runs into one of her toughest opponents. She runs a chain of luxurious brothels by now and she uses her power to get even with an old enemy. The initial shock-values of `She Wolf of the SS' are long gone and Ilsa isn't half as creepy as she used to. On the contrary, her actions become more and more dreadful and this film is overall lame. There are a few ingenious torturing methods present in Tigress – like a chainsaw/arm-wrestling contest and drowning in ice-cold water - as well as a lot of soft-core action. Ilsa still guarantees a lot of voyeurism and she now even needs two men at the time, in order to be satisfied. The script is filled with unintentionally hilarious lines, like `Your body is full and warm, like Mother Russia itself' But…even a constant series of naked boobs and bloody mutilation becomes tedious after a while. The Ilsa-series sure prove that. These films have a giant cult following and I'm sure the diehard fans will still enjoy this final installment. If you're more like a random cult-film explorer, I advise you to stop after the first Ilsa film…
