Our Daily Trailer: LOVE CAMP 7 (NSFW)

The movie that invented the Nazisploitation genre - Lee Frost's sleazy classic, LOVE CAMP 7.

Today Badass Digest found itself getting some unwanted attention from the not-so-good folks at StormFront, a leading Neo-Naziweb forum. This has inspired me to run a Nazisploitation trailer.

Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS is the most famous of the Nazisploitation movies, but the genre got started way back in 1969 with this crappy gem from Lee Frost. Frost, one of the best and most important purveyors of exploitationnonsense (The Thing With Two HeadsChrome and Hot LeatherThe Black Gestapo), had always specialized in roughies and S&M movies, so moving on to Nazi materialwas no stretch. Bob Cresse, who 'wrote' the film and stars as the Commandant, was a real-life fascist who was despisedby all who met him. A misogynist and misanthropist, Cresse wrote, produced and starred in a couple of films with Frost.

The horrifying subject matter - a sexualization of Holocaust atrocities - was perfect for the coarsening grindhouse scene. Frost and Cresse were pioneering the use of unpleasant rape and torture in movies, and they really broke ground with this one. Love Camp 7is the first of the bunch, but it's not really the nastiest - despite being infamously banned from Britain as one of the 'Video Nasties.'

The whole genre is really for advanced sleaze connoisseurs only, and Love Camp 7 is only for those with a deep interest in the history of Nazisploitation or the kind of anti-social disorder that makes one seek out allof Lee Frost's filmography.
