"And censorship is sometimes the best thing that can happen to a movie. Case in point SS HELL CAMP, a `video nasty' that contained scenes of such perversity it moved a nation to impose sanctions to protect its citizens from its baleful influence. And that's just the stuff that'll get chumps like me to line up around the block to take a gander.
Well, peek away, and try your best to stay awake. The Germans are occupying a town, a band of partisans are blowing up bridges, and the bad guys are rounding up the wimmen folk for interrogation purposes. The chief Nazi doctor on-site is a gorgeous brunette with a dominating air and a caged, half-human, sex maniac in the cellar. To make them talk, the women are either sadistically - and graphically - tortured (a bad thing,) or they're thrown naked in the cage with the neanderthal Casanova (a very bad thing.)
More than half this movie, the half that's spent with the intrepid band of partisans in the field, is impossibly boring and can't be watched without mashing the fast-forward button. The acting is atrocious and the scenes in the field run on forever. Besides, the whole point of the movie is to linger over the shoulder of the beautiful and twisted Nazi doctor.
I'm sorry, this movie is supposed to shock and disgust, but it is done so poorly it's impossible to take it even half-seriously. Its worse scene involves a number of women undergoing a number of tortures. One woman, strapped to a table, is supposed to have been cut open, her entrails exposed and gnawed on by rats. Supposed to have been, but the stage blood was gruel thin, you could see her intact stomach underneath it, and the red sawdust on top failed to convince as innards. Plus, the `rats' on her stomach were a couple of overweight guinea pigs, who scampered away as quick as their pudgy little legs could take them. I gave this movie two stars for the unintentional laughs it provided. SS HELL CAMP is a nasty little exploitation movie, although I'd call it silly rather than shocking, and pretty poorly made.

"When I was a kid, my parents sent me to a diabetic summer camp, and I usually tend to think of that as a kind of SS Hell Camp. Naturally I saw the film, SS Hell Camp, because I'm one of those weirdos who tends to like cheap, cruddy films that exploit one of the darkest(if not the darkest) moments in world history simply for violent thrills and sleazery.
But after viewing SS Hell Camp I realized that the diabetic summer camp wasn't so bad, and that I would have rather spent an hour and a half there again instead of watching this movie. As you can guess, it takes it's inspiration from Ilsa-She Wolf of the SS. A loony Nazi scientist chick is torturing women in the name of medical science. She's created some kind of terminally horny, hairy dude she keeps in a cage, and every now and again she throws an unfortunate victim in with him. He proceeds to savagely do his business until the woman expires. These scenes become rather long and boring, believe it or not. It only seemed to pep up a bit when the horny beast-man decides to eat the pubic hair of one of the girls. But it is rather sad when a scene like that is the highlight of the film. The rest of the movie is devoted to some partisans who are plotting to bring the evil doctor chick down.
Mother Mary and Joseph, is this boring!
I gotta tell ya, a flick like this shouldn't be boring, there's no excuse. So I gotta say, SS Hell Camp is one to avoid. You're better off giving Ilsa another go."
