    Description: In the midst of a wave of Italian Nazi sex/horror films during 1976-1977, this standard sleazefest from director Luigi Batzella (using the pseudonym "Ivan Kathansky") was tarted up with extra scenes of sex and torture and promoted as an Italian version of Ilsa, She-Wolf of the S.S. In spirit, it's actually closer to a hybrid of that film and its sequel, Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks, as Allied prisoners and a harem of Arab women end up in a Nazi concentration camp run by a sadistic doctor named Erika (Lea Krugher using her "Lea Lander" pseudonym). The usual atrocities ensue, punched up by occasional stock footage from other Batzella war films and a cast including familiar exploitation faces like Richard Harrison, Gordon Mitchell, and Isarco Ravaioli. It's a mess, too sick for most war film fans and not sick enough for fans of the Nazi S&M subgenre, but Batzella remedied that situation with his next foray, the appalling The Beast in Heat, which jettisoned action elements to focus on sexual atrocities.
