Set in a Nazi "Love Camp" that services the needs of front line officers. The video packaging claims that this film is based on fact, but the plot is so far fetched you would have a hard time believing that. Two young WAC officers go undercover as POW's in the prison camp hoping to get some information from a scientist that's being held there, before being sprung out by the French resistance. Unfortunately things go wrong with the break out and they end up overstaying their welcome and being subjected to the same indignities as the other inmates.Written by

The film was one of the original 72 video nasties in the UK and consequently banned. When the film was eventually submitted to the BBFC in 2002 it was refused a certificate with the statement as follows - 'The BBFC has refused a classification to the video of LOVE CAMP 7. LOVE CAMP 7 is an exploitation film set in a Nazi 'love camp' during the second World War. The film contains numerous scenes of women prisoners being abused, tortured and humiliated by their Nazi captors. Indeed the whole purpose of the work is to invite male viewers to relish the spectacle of naked women being humiliated for their titillation. LOVE CAMP 7 contains both eroticised depictions of sexual violence and repeated association of sex with restraint, pain, and humiliation. These sequences were in clear contravention of the Board's strict policy on depictions of sexual violence, which prohibits scenes that eroticise or endorse sexual assault. The possibility of cuts was considered. However, because the sexual violence runs throughout the work cutting was not considered to be a viable option'. See more »

Even though they all look sensational, shocking and hugely controversial, "Nazi-Exploitation" moves generally are the most boring and irritatingly awful titles that fall under the cult-genre. There are some notable exceptions (like "Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS" and "Salon Kitty"), but the vast majority is just boring rubbish with awesome looking VHS-covers. "Love Camp 7" was one of the first (maybe even THE first) Nazi-exploitation flicks ever made, and it already sucked badly, so it's only logical it spawned a whole series of terrible followers. The plot is very rudimentary and implausible, as you may expect. Two gorgeous looking (talking in terms of late 60's/early 70's standards) infiltrate in a Nazi Camp where random women are picked from the streets to serve as sex-toys for German military officers. So basically, these two girls are prepared to be humiliated, sexually harassed and maybe even tortured, exclusively to study and find out more about the perverted desires of soldiers of the Third Reich??? Quite unlikely to find volunteers for that type of assignment if you ask me, but hey this is exploitation cinema. There's an overload of full-frontal nudity in "Love Camp 7", but the actual sleaze and sex footage is understandably still rather tame. Nazi Exploitation gradually became more rancid and explicit, and by the time of SS Hell Camp (1977), the female cast members were even submitted to having sex with genetically engineered and super-hairy monsters. That certainly doesn't imply the later efforts in this sub genre are any less boring and inept, mind you. "Love Camp 7" hangs together by awfully written dialogs, lousy acting performances and totally intolerable characters. Enduring this film until the end credits role over the screen is some sort of torture on itself. Go straight for Dyanne Thorne's grotesque escapades in the aforementioned "Ilsa, She Wolf in the SS". Or better yet, avoid Nazi-Exploitation in general.
