Mrs CB

Almost all of these Naziploitation films were made in the 70“s and early 80“s, there was alot less PC back then, film makers could do and make what they wanted, same as Cowboy and Indian films, I“m 36 yrs old, when I was young, single digits young, I thought all Indians were bad, and all they wanted to do was kill the poor Cowboys, not until I received an education did I realise that this wasn“t the case.

As Rich has said, Nazi“s make great villains, I have only seen a couple of Naziploitation films, Ilsa Of The SS, and I can“t think what else, I almost see the Nazi genre as revenge films, the few that I have seen the Nazi“s always get there comeuppance, and never pleasantly either,

I understand that this genre is not everybody“s cup of tea, having a quick scout through Amazon there are very few Naziploitation films made in the last 10 or so years, a few that have a recent date are DVD release dates , and are films made long ago,

Dearest Hang Ten,
I understand that it is hard to tell the difference between good and bad when still young, but what gets to me is the fact that the people who enjoy this genre are adults. I just don`t get how it became a specialist niche, when it is based on pure stark terror.
I can`t read books about Genocide without feeling sick to the stomach and wishing I could have had the chance to help.
I`m sorry if I seem to be accusatory, it`s just a subject which is so hard for me to handle.
I`m not Jewish, and was not even born when the war began, but somehow I have always identified with the tragic victims of a mad regime.
As you say though, each to his own.
Kindest regards

The last one I watched was video nasty "Love Camp 7". I was expecting to be disappointed by this after seeing some of the other more violent ones like for example "Gestapo's Last Orgy", "Ilsa" and "SS Experiment Camp". But this didn't disappoint me at all, even though it wasn't as violent as the other similar ones I've seen.

I still have a few in my SS Hell Packs to watch but I couldn't resist ordering Rich and A. Walker's recommended good value "Nazi Cult Collection". I bought it from dutch seller MorganentLTD yesterday and it worked out at under £3 a film, so I should have enough of these films now to last me next year as I only watch one ever so often. I do plan on buying at least a few more though next year and I already know which ones I want next.

Me watching these films is no more disturbing than someone who watches for example "The X-Factor" aka "Karaoke Factor" or "Eastenders" aka "Eastwhingers" aka "DeadEnders" etc. etc.

Disgusted Bored Housewife Troll, got any Nazi themed horror films to recommend, that haven't already been mentioned in this topic? I am happy with my collection for now, but always happy to add another good one. Feel free to mention any ones you're disgusted by that I might not have heard of, and I will add them to my wish list for possible future buying.

Nutty Professor,
Try these,
Au Revoir Les Enfants, Triumph of the Spirit....and Shoah.
Hope they are sick enough you moron

Disgusted Bored Housewife Troll aka Mary Whitehouse Part II, why didn't you just recommend those in the first place as an alternative instead of patronising everyone?

Ahh I do so enjoy a measured intellectual response...

On paper Nazisploitation seems the most offensive offshoot of the exploitation/ video nasty subgenre but this belief is instantly extinguished upon viewing any of the offending features as they are all as camp as Christmas. Exploitation cinema reduces all manner of transgression, no matter how appalling, to the simplest stock archetypes and Nazi features are no exception. Indeed they may be the most defining examples of exploitation cinema in their emotional minimalism. Obviously I can see why somebody would find them offensive but my answer to that is simple: if you find the concept of Nazi Horror offensive, don't watch any of the films.

Another original and charismatic troll, no need to shout. At least Disgusted Bored Housewife eventually posted some recommendations. What about you Liam aka Original Charismatic Troll?

Hi Professor: Looks like you're the Wicked Warden on this thread. Just checked out Triumph of the Spirit on IMDB. Seems like an interesting film (although it seems more a drama than a horror). It would seem that some ppl seem to think if a films got Nazi's in it its disgusting and degrading. If a books got Nazis in it it educational.

Ps for anyone interested Blood Creek is sh*t avoid.

Hi AlanK47, you've given me another possible idea for my next fake name. Will consider that one, but haven't had this one long enough yet. I don't think Disgusted Bored Housewife Troll aka Mary Whitehouse II will be back anytime soon, but you never know with trolls.

They always seem to come back for more and it certainly wouldn't suprise me if Original Charismatic Troll aka Mr. Liam Knowles come's back. He's probably been typing D**K HEAD for the last two and a half hours. Liam, just copy and paste your own post, it's a lot quicker.

I think there should be films made about the Boer War.
We invented the concentration camp during this campaign, and killed lots of women and children in them.
The Germans just refined the process.
Funny you never hear about that isn't it?

The Keep by Michael Mann based on the F Paul Wilson novel--a bit too heavy on the synthesizers and dialogue audio is poor but an interesting idea. A more recent indie called The Bunker is pretty good.

The argument I find most distasteful in this thread is that someone is complaining about the content of these films without actually having watched any of them. If something offends you then fine don't watch it, but you then have no basis on which to mount an argument.
After recently watching the fabulous new documentary within the 3 Disc Box Set 'The Definitive Guide to Video Nasties' it seems clear that a majority of people who passed the Video Recordings Act in the early 80's were of the same ilk i.e complaining about something they had never watched. I am not suggesting that we should not have a ratings system in cinema but that it should be done fairly.
I have a deep interest in History, especially pertaining to World War II but I also have an interest in Horror, Science-Fiction, Fantasy and B-Movie Cinema, therefore I have watched many of these films over the years. I do not confuse the two, but I am at least able to give a balanced view of both if asked.
There are sections of History as well as Cinema and Music that I have little, if any knowledge of and I would not dream of commenting on them in any respect until I had learnt more.

I've got an old horror book from the 1970s that's got a large still from a film called The Frozen Dead about a mad scientist played by Dana Andrews, a once great Hollywood star reduced to low budget British horror(see also Lon Chaney Jr, Joan Crawford, Ray Milland etc etc), thawing the Master Race back to life. Unfortunately I've never seen it. Isn't there another called They Saved Hitler's Brain?

I have a guilty pleasure for Red Nights Of The Gestapo, and Deported Women Of The SS is okayish.

If you're into something a bit more thought-provoking and a little less sensational, give Mother Night a try. It's based on the outstanding Kurt Vonnegut book of the same title.
