Good Taste Is Timeless: Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS This Weekend at Logue's (NSFW)

The most common reaction from exposure to the infamous 1975 Nazi sexploitation film Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS is utter disbelief. The brain absolutely refuses to accept that such a movie could exist. Surely it must be an elaborate and tasteless web-perpetrated hoax! But Deutschmarks to donuts, it’s real all right — a testament to just what a bizarre time the 1970s were.

Ilsa was shot on sets originally built for television’s paragon of questionable taste in the 1960s, Hogan’s Heroes. What's even more amazing, though, is that it was popular enough to spawn two official sequels (not counting 1977's Wanda, the Wicked Warden, sometimes marketed as a spinoff). Ilsa continued her blonde reign of cruelty in such popular travel destinations as the Middle East (1976's Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks) and Siberia (1977's Ilsa, the Tigress of Siberia). Not to mention being perfectly parodied by Rob Zombie’s faux-trailer for “Werewolf Women of the S.S.” in one segment of the 2007 exploitation film fiesta Grindhouse.

The public-minded folks at the Cult Fiction Underground underneath Logue’s Black Raven Emporium are providing the opportunity to witness this jaw-dropping WTF-fest for yourself 8 and 10 p.m. tonight and Saturday.

Abandon all sense of propriety, ye who click below. It doesn't get any more NSFW than this.
