This is a film made for fanboys and girls, chocked full of Easter eggs and an incredible cast. I geeked the fuck out while watching and had so much fun. Fans of Olaf Ittenbach, The Exorcist and Troma will love this film. Lloyd Kaufman makes a cameo appearance as a drunken grandpa watching The Toxic Avenger with his grand-daughter, and if that wasn’t exciting enough Dyanne mother fucking Thorne (Ilsa She wolf of the SS) is in it!!! Her character is everything I was hoping it would be and she still looks fucking amazing in her 70’s.

The plot is a simple one we all know and love, a haunted house with a sordid past. At the beginning a séance is performed that unleashes an ancient evil at Shadow View Manor, an old manor turned into a business office. Jacob (Antwione Steele) a new security guard is on his first shift and just learning the ropes. Cassie (Nicole Santorella)  and Hannah (Michaela Paxton Tarbell) are holding a séance for a tv show and invite Jacob to join in. The séance goes awry, and soon menacing entities start wreaking havoc in the manor. No one can leave and as they struggle to escape they’re picked off one by one.

At the end we’re left with only Cassie and Jacob who are both sensitives. Cassie starts to get visions of the past and we learn that the manor was originally a seedy brothel ran by Gretta (Dyanne Thorne). One of the best customers of the brothel is the local priest Elias Solomon (Lew Temple) who gets one of the girls pregnant. Gretta blackmails him, threatening to tell everyone unless he pays 20,000. Elias promises to return in a couple days with the money. When he returns several days later he brings a bunch of thugs and it turns into a whore house massacre. Up until this point the kills have been spaced out and have lots of fun gore, but the finale is a blood bath that will give any gore fan a boner.

Besides the fact that it’s obviously low budget and there is some minor pacing problems (it drags a tad in places) this was a solid film. If you want a Hollywood blockbuster look elsewhere, true fans of the genre will love this and be delighted with all it has to offer.

Uneathed  Films will be releasing a Blu-ray on November the 13th you can pre-order here

WiHM: Dyanne Thorne as Ilsa

WiHM: Dyanne Thorne as Ilsa

Dyanne Thorne as Ilsa She Wolf of the SSThis next lady’s contribution to horror may be a little controversial, but I still feel that Dyanne Thorne’s character Ilsa deserves some love during women in horror month.

I found myself struggling to write this to not sound like a Nazi sympathizer and to not glorify the atrocities committed during the Holocaust. I hope that before the social justice and keyboard warriors attack, they consider the reasons I choose to salute her.

Dyanne Thorne as Ilsa She Wolf of the SSIn case you aren’t familiar with the Ilsa character she starred in a triology of cult/Nazisploitation films called Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, Ilsa, Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks, and Ilsa, the Wicked Warden. The first two films are directed by the Canadian (yay Canada!) director Don Edmunds and the third by popular Spanish cult director Jesus Franco. Thorne plays a tough female leader as Ilsa in all three and they’re all great movies, but She Wolf of the SS is my favorite and will be my focus in this tribute.

Dyanne Thorne as Ilsa She Wolf of the SSIlsa She Wolf of the SS is the only Nazisploitation film in the trilogy and is by far the best, but I’d argue that it’s more about feminism and female sexuality than Nazis. Ilsa is a Nazi Komandant, in charge of a “medical” camp. She is hell bent on proving that woman are inherently stronger than men and have a much higher threshold for pain. She works endlessly to prove this by inflicting all kinds of sadistic torture upon the women who enter her camp. It’s nearing the end of the war and Germany is in desperate need of reinforcements and she wants to demonstrate that women would make far greater soldiers than men. She finally proves this after subjecting the women to gangrene, whippings, gang rape, an electrified dildo (and I don’t mean it vibrates), genital mutilation, and syphilis. She’s gratified when she finds a star test subject who can withstand all of the above and still fight back.

While Ilsa works hard during the day she also works hard at night choosing a different male prisoner each night to sexually satisfy her. When they fail to meet her needs, she has them castrated until she finally comes across an American prisoner who is able to hold an erection indefinitely. Her sexual prowess leads to her unfortunate demise as the American ends up seducing her and killing her.

Dyanne Thorne as Ilsa She Wolf of the SSA couple of fun facts regarding Ilsa:

The set of She Wolf was actually the recycled set of Hogan’s Heroes and since the show had already been cancelled they were allowed to burn it to the ground for the final scene of Ilsa, saving them the cost of having it demolished.

Dyanne Thorne now performs weddings in Las Vegas and rumor has it that if you pay enough she will dress up as Ilsa.

I’ll always love Ilsa for her ability to command respect, her strength and indifference when it comes to her work and most importantly for her shameless sexual expression.
