Description: Siberia. 1953. Woman Ilsa working in the gulag. Her mission – to brainwash everybody’s brains who does not agree with the communist regime. But one prisoner, is a tough nut and can not be treated to Ilsa. Warden does not surrender, promising to eventually break his perseverance … The continue of Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS and Ilsa: The Wicked Warden
Review: The final episode of the villain Ilse turned uneven, which can easily be divided into two parts due to their thematic differences between each other. The first layer of timing will be implemented within the time frame of 1953 hell frost of Siberia, and the second in the modern capitalist Montreal sample, of course in terms of the film’s release of 1977. At first, it’s all the same “good old” the torture, sadistic thriller, casualty officers who are bullied maniacs, and then flows into a kind of story (operational similarity, which means very much naive conditional) a certain action-spy story. However, this is the most action-component is always maintained, that issue macabre scenes with varying thematic overtones of torture regardless of the chronological background, for example, in the camp of political prisoners is brainwashing using electricity for the elimination of ideological enemies of Stalinism, and in the den at criminal scoundrels use modern computers to fish out the secrets of self-interest.
As mentioned earlier, the beginning of a story line keeps the old, walking hand in hand with the whole franchise. This again is a feisty and slutty chairwoman of the camp, resorting to various tortures on within it. It should be noted that a change of scenery in the icy conditions of the Gulag, but went only be of benefit, even so the viewer can catch all the discomfort, “pictures”, where there are gloomy wood barracks, viscous deep snow drowns on most belt and cutting blizzard does not let up for a second . Specific unique “Siberian set” screen Torture also released an original approach in comparison with the Gestapo torture chambers jaded characteristic of thematically similar works, taken with an eye to the fable «nazisploitation». We have before us a man-eating tiger and Sasha, and drowning in the hole, and shoots in the snow-covered woods …
Regarding the specifics in the script of Evil under the red star, the film certainly does not avoid those funny bloopers, which are common to all Western productions, talks about Russian. That is, frequent cliche to cliche inevitably dilute the “terrible” component of stories, showing foreign phobias associated with a frightening and unknown holodyuschim corner of the world, home to the communists gloomy, with a certain elite “race” sinister bearded Cossack, famously killing everybody Sabres yes spears without dismounting from their horses, which certainly is talking about vodka, hard crash after drinking a sweeping gesture every (!) glass, the evenings are spent exclusively in the baths, and appeal to all and sundry on duty – “comrade.” Here you need to make the wrong labels on the barracks with two letters “p” is ludicrous, unnatural pronunciation of Russian words, and dance like a handkerchief under the balalaika by Ilse, that is, the actress Dianne Thorne (Dyanne Thorne).
It turns out that no matter how the filmmakers were trying to catch up with the sinister trappings Russian North, and were so ridiculous for our audience.
But sorry that this topic is minimal, reminiscent of the prologue, and most of the screen time Savour Montreal, where an escaped (from the stories we have to remember than the date marked the 53rd year of the twentieth century for the Land of the Soviets) Ilsa, organized criminal network, again equipped with a different torture, murder, intrigue, and many others. But still again on the screen appear “bad” and “good” Russian, which are also full of funny moments clichéd.
As a result, the impression from the tape, especially as can arise from the operation does not fully positive for the direction. Used a torture party is present in the work, but surprisingly (again, in a narrow slice franchise) is completely distant from the beauties tortured in the frame, as provided in the Gulag-s are only men, and in the inferior segment, rather than conquer spy thriller. He carries only the echoes of the ties, and more goes into action, but not as depressing for her age, a small budget, and looking back at the naive Grindhouse. I am particularly pleased with the scene sent by Soviet special forces to storm the underworld “hornet’s nest” with generous bloody skirmishes. Regarding «sexexploitation», here there will be no padding – nudity dime a dozen, not necessarily motivated prescribed course of business. Well, forget about Ilse not worth it, because of this negative character again many familiar antics on the spot, as well as the absurd behavior.
Thus, I am sure that the film be fully concentrated on the idea of a prologue to the snow-covered camp, where the characters have to give up mentally and physically survive, the movie could be quite original creation in the sub-genre, but because of the existing dualism reel of film is not too happy. However, fans of Grindhouse and want to keep track of all cinematic life antigeroini Ilse picture can bring some pleasure, because typical naive beyond areas are kept full, and just fun to watch a villain, dressed in a kind of Soviet form with a red star. Russian Ilsa – well worth it, if you allow yourself to the amount of humor and do not withstand serious approach setting.
