Truely the most terrible film of all time!
on 2 August 2006
This film is so bad I have given it five stars as you really have to see it to believe that film-making can be so atrocious. Let me explain...
Imagine compiling a check-list for all the things that make a film bad:
- Crappy acting
- Budget set and props
- Dubbed from a foreign language (badly)
- Bad set lighting
- Overuse of zooming and panning
- Soundtrack composed on an early 1980s Casio keyboard
Add to this a DVD recording that had been taken from an old VHS tape (i.e. lots of red running) and the morally repulsive premise that the film is based on, and you have what I - and my two friends who watched it with me - consider to be the worst film of all time.
Please don't get me wrong. I am not anti-Semitic. The Holocaust and the Nazis were utterly vile. But this film is so ridiculous and in such bad taste that if you are a fan of film, 'SS Experimental Love Camp' is a must see. As biziarre as it sounds the three of us watching it spent the first twenty minutes (out of a mercifully short 93 minutes) laughing so hard it hurted. Curiously, the original title of 'SS Experimental Love Camp' was changed on this DVD release to 'SS Experimental Camp' - although surely not for reasons of taste?!
On reflection, three things were memorable - 1) the cheap temperature controller (a bit of wood and some paint, cobbled together by someone who was clearly blind and arm-less), 2) the SS sergeant who laughs like Beavis and Butthead, and 3) that from here on every film I see will be better than at least one other.
