“Hannah, you’ve got to live — whatever the price!”

As with Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS (1975) and its sequel, the less said about this egregious “Nazisploitation” flick the better. We’re exposed to torture, gang rape, S&M, and utter degradation on all levels, leading one to wonder what the point of any of this is — other than (perhaps) a minor revenge twist near the end.
This film is also “notable” for including some explicit adult content. Be duly forewarned.
Note: Finnish actress Sirpa Lane died from HIV/AIDS at the age of 47.
