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

One for fans of Dyanne Thorne
27 October 2011 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

Some films have great stories. Others have thrills, suspense and mystery. This one has a phenomenal pair of breasts. And I have to admit that, all things considered, that's a pretty good production value. Yes, Ilsa the Tigress of Siberia may very well be an uneven movie in many ways but at the end of the day Dyanne Thorne is the only reason to watch this, right? Ms Thorne has a truly eye-popping physique and she gets naked a lot. And that's more or less it really.

The story is hilariously half-hearted. The cold-hearted and massive-chested Ilsa controls a communist gulag where she dominates a group of male dissidents. After a prisoner rebellion the story cuts to Montreal 1977, twenty-five years later. The gap in time is almost impossible to detect as everyone looks exactly the same. But even though I point this out, I really don't care because the filmmakers sure didn't, it makes no difference to this trash-fest. Somehow, Ilsa runs a luxurious whorehouse in this second half of the film, giving ample opportunity to feed us even more nudity and sleaze of course.

There's a bit of gore, quite a lot of torture and loads of T&A. Good enough for me.
