Love Camp 7 (1969)

The movie is seen as a cult classic because it represents the beginning of a fashion for exploitation films about women in prison in the 1970s, such as Women in Cages (1971) and The Big Bird Cage (1972), both of which made Pam Grier a recognizable name in the genre. It is also the first in the Nazi exploitation (or Nazisploitation) genre of concentration camp movies, including Ilsa: She-Wolf of the SS (1974)–which was produced by David F. Friedman and led to several sequels with Dyanne Thorne as the titular character–and the Italian Nazi Love Camp 27 (1977) and Last Orgy of the Third Reich (1977), the latter of which helped launch Daniela Poggi’s showbusiness career.


Set in a Nazi “Love Camp” that services the needs of front line officers. The video packaging claims that this film is based on fact, but the plot is so far fetched you would have a hard time believing that. Two young WAC officers go undercover as POW’s in the prison camp hoping to get some information from a scientist that’s being held there, before being sprung out by the French resistance. Unfortunately things go wrong with the break out and they end up overstaying their welcome and being subjected to the same indignities as the other inmates.
