ISLA: THE WICKED WARDEN (1977)

Revisited this 1977 Erwin C. Dietrich produced epic lensed in Switzerland and Portugal (for the jungle exteriors). It's probably the most political of Franco's WIP's with the director himself playing a dissident Physician who attempts to expose the horrors of the prison system which has employed him.

US version

This is not really another of the ILSA series but was originally titled GRETA: HAUS OHNE MANNER, with Dyanne Thorne playing Greta Del Pino, the sadistic, depraved wardress. This is actually a better written, photographed, scored, directed and acted film than any of the ILSA films.

The real thing...


The cannibal climax with Greta as the main course at the flesh feast while the meal is turned into a snuff film by her own strong arm man (Eric Falk) is high genre satire. Or could it be a self-critique of his own participation in the WIP/Cannibal subgenres?

Hated Lina's hair in this one, but overall really enjoyed the movie.

It's really the ultimate WiP movie. And you get Dyanne Thorne and Lina Romay together!

LOVED lina in this! hair and all! This film is what made me a fan of her. I still think it's one of her best roles she did. Incredible!
