Now this one is a doozy, kids! The third in the infamous Ilsa films (total of 4, I believe), this one goes back to the standards of excellence found in the original, "Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS." If you are unfamiliar with the Ilsa films, that may or may not be a good thing. If you are a fan of...

Manufacturer's product description

Infamous Spanish director Jess Franco (VAMPYROS LESBOS) was the perfect choice to helm this third installment in the Ilsa series. It's a surprisingly well-photographed little piece of sado-masochistic erotic schlock, with Isla (Dyanne Thorne) now operating a clinic for sexually aberrant women in the jungles of Los Polomas, South America. Of course the clinic is only a cover, with Ilsa regularly torturing the inmates for political, sexual, and exploitative purposes (she makes films of their suffering, and sells them). A brave woman (Tania Busselier) goes undercover as a patient in the clinic to find her sister. Instead she finds things like whippings, burnings, rapes, electrocutions, suffocation, needle torture, shock treatment and cannibalism. In the calmer moments there's softcore lesbianism and numerous shower scenes. Franco favorite Lina Romay co-stars as Ilsa's masochistic lover. The violence is never overly convincing, but this is still pretty disturbing stuff, and not for the faint of heart. It's a Candian production filmed in Switzerland and set in South America, with an international cast that includes Angela Ritschard, Howard Maurer, Peggy Markoff, and Franco himself, as Dr. Arkos.
