(aka "Helga, la louve de Stilberg" or "Girl Slaves" or "Helga the Leather Mistress" or "Bloody Camp" )

 

directed by Patrice Rhomm (as Alain Garnier)
France 1978

 

In a South American country, ruthless dictator President Steiner's power is being eroded by the influence on the people of leftist lawyer Vogel who has gone into hiding with the rebels. When director of propaganda Helga (Malisa Longo, CAT IN THE BRAIN) proposes a crackdown on students and others susceptible to rebellion, General Gomez (Olivier Mathot, DEVIL KISS) sidelines her by putting her in charge of a women's work camp in an isolated castle at Stilberg. Among the new prisoners is Vogel's daughter Elizabeth (Patrizia Gori, WAR OF THE ROBOTS) who Helga hopes to use to get Vogel to reveal himself. Elizabeth withstands Helga's multiple attempts to break her through torture and rape, and lesbian Helga finds herself falling for the girl and she becomes Helga's new favorite (much to the jealousy of the other prisoners). When the revolt reaches the capital, Elizabeth must regain her fellow prisoners' trust and work out a way to escape before Helga silences them for good. One of a handful of Eurocine productions cashing in on Don Edmonds' ILSA trilogy, shot back-to-back with NATHALIE: ESCAPE FROM HELL, HELGA: SHE WOLF OF STILBERG never approaches the unpleasantness of its model and is as listless as Eurocine's other Nazisploitation and women-in-prison efforts and looks cheap despite the locations thanks to flat lighting and the use of obvious stock footage. Although there was never a hardcore version of the film, the supporting cast does include French adult performers Richard Allan (THE MARQUISE OF PORNO), Dominique Aveline (CHEATING COUPLES), Alban Ceray (PUSSY TALK 2), and Italian porn director Franco Lo Cascio (aka Luca Damiano).

Comments

Screenbound's Maison Rouge line presentation of this title appears to come from the same master as the US DVD from MVD Visual but is the superior edition. It appears that licensor Eurocine provided the master without the titles overlayed on the static frame opening and closing sequences and included the titles on black leader as an extra. The US DVD lets the film, clothed takes, and credits run as one video streams with individual access to the "extras" through the chapter menu (as chapters eleven and twelve without labels). Screenbound's DVD not only includes English subtitles for the French track but also overlays the titles in their correct positions and allows access to the clothed scenes through a bonus features menu along with a trailer for the film. The clothed takes on the MVD DVD run longer because of the presence of black leader in between the scenes while the credits section also includes the French title sequence on black leader.
