Oh ILSA!!!

The original 3 VHS releases of the ILSA films in Denmark!

ILSA, SHE WOLF OF THE SS


ILSA, HAREM KEEPER OF THE OIL SHEIKS


ILSA, THE TIGRESS OF SIBERIA


Notice when these films originally ran in the Danish cinemas and came out on VHS the title character was called "Ilse" because that's the correct Danish and German spelling. This "Ilsa" is an American respelling. Unfortunately, when the Danish video company put out these films on DVD a few years back they didn't bother to use the Danish title. Many Danes don't give two fucks for tradition. :/

  1. I bought the Scanbox-release, a nice box with all three some years ago - before it was pulled because suddenly some fucking wimp at Scanbox decided that this is offensive films!

  2. Really??? That's the release I referred to in my post. Do you know if Scanbox only pulled the Swedish version or the release entirely? I saw it not long ago in Denmark.

  3. It was only pulled in Sweden... The moron who did it was Scanbox (Sweden) new vice director Nicklas Bengtsson!!! He also stated that Ilsa was released by accident... It was never meant for the swedish market!!!

    By the way, the Danish vhs re-release of Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS is cut!! The 2 others are uncut!!

    One of them also changed the Danish title along the way!
