Storyline

In 1953, nestled deep in the unforgiving Siberian Tundra, the Stalinist Gulag 14, a purgatory for the rehabilitation of political dissidents, is under the command of the brutally seductive tormentor, Ilsa. However, after Stalin's execution, the camp is burned to the ground by Ilsa's comrades with the intention of leaving no one behind to recount the horrors within the prison's gates, with the exception of one man: the survivor Andre Chicurin. Now, more than two decades later, in 1977, Ilsa has found refuge in Montreal running a profitable brothel, unaware that Chicurin thirsts for retribution. Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

Ilsa: [addressing the prisoners] Here at Gulag 14, there is a certain formality before a death is certified. This dog tried to escape. He planned to trick us. Perhaps, even now, he cheats us. We must make certain. Watch and remember well...

The Fourth in the "Infamous" Ilsa Series
27 September 2005 | by (St. John's Abortion Clinic) – See all my reviews

I don't see what the big deal is here...Almost all the other reviewers seem to hate this film, and I don't really get it. After the goofy, uninspired HAREM KEEPER, and the pretty dull sleaze-fest WICKED WARDEN, I was pleasantly surprised with TIGRESS. It's no masterpiece by any means, but this one had some inventive torture and a decent amount of tits-and-ass. This one has the mammoth-mounded Ilsa playing baby-sitter to a bunch of Russian traitors in the first half of the film, and a Canadian whorehouse madam in the second half. Yes, the story is definitely a little disjointed, almost playing like 2 different films, but I think this one had a good balance between sex and gore, and enough sleazy humor to make it an all-around worthwhile and entertaining entry. Definitely worth checking out if you like the series (or sleazy exploit cinema in general), but you may have a hard time finding it - I don't believe that there is a DVD release as of yet (at least not in the States), so start scouring those old mom-and-pop video stores. Regardless of what the other guys say, I like this one - 8/10
