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 »

Maria Lease and Kathy Williams play women who agree to be sent to a Nazi concentration camp to get some information on a scientist doing experiments there. It doesn't take long for the women (and others) to sees the horrors that are going on at the camp.
LOVE CAMP 7 is a rather historic film because it took the women-in-prison genre and took it a step further. This here was the first film to throw in the Nazi side of things and the result would end up leading to the creation of Naziploitation, which would take over drive-in screens for the next decade. A lot of people call this film boring and they call it tame. This might be true but at the same time people need to remember that this here was the first film and everything that followed had a bar that they knew they had to surpass.
For the most part I didn't find this film as awful as some have. I actually thought for the most part it was well-made and it at least looked like a real motion picture unlike so many of the films that were to follow. The film really doesn't have much of a plot but this is exploitation we're talking about so the only "plot" needed is to just get us to the next bit of nudity. Speaking of nudity, there are plenty of women undressed here and that's the whole selling point of the picture.
The majority of the 96-minute running time has women standing around their cell naked or being sexually assaulted by the guards. The women are basically sex slaves so there are countless scenes of the woman being forced to have sex. The camera knows what to focus on and this is certainly clear during a scene where the women are forced to stand in a circle and hold up buckets. The camera is in the middle of this circle and basically just goes around capturing all of the breasts.
LOVE CAMP 7 isn't a masterpiece but it does deserve credit for being the first of its type and it did get the subgenre off the ground.
