Naziplotation films have been the dirty little secret sub genre of exploitation films for years. When the exploitation craze of the 70's was happening down on 42nd street in New York you could see any type of sub genre you could possibly imagine. If you wanted sex, violence, and depravity you could find it easily. You can trace back naziplotation to 1945 in the film Rome, Open City by Italian director Roberto Rossellini. Rosselliniís film was not nearly as exploitive as some of the later entries in the genre. It wasn't until the 70's when the sub genre took off. Some would say that the Ilsa films starring Dyanne Thorne is what really got the genre going.
Nazithon: Decadence and Destruction is a collection of trailers and long clips from these controversial films. All of this is tied together with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee as your host. She is wearing your typical outfit that you would see in these films. She also includes a slight accent that is not all that bad. She breaks down the films even farther for us into smaller groups. Who knew there were so many different types of Naziplotation films? McGee keeps it moving along with just enough dialogue with the audience to serve her role. Perhaps the best thing to her hosting this is we don't get those silly interruptions like we do in other films like this. She is the perfect fit for this role and gives off this sadomasochistic vibe that goes along with this genre. Not to mention she is pretty easy on the eyes if you ask me.
Not only does this give you many of the considered classics of naziplotation. We also get an array of films you probably never even heard of. Thanks to this documentary we get all of what you need for a quick knowledge of the genre. It will leave you either wanting to check them out or say "I have seen enough". Thoughts of erotic violence and depravity will be in your head for a bit after your viewing. I am willing to bet for most of you your morbid curiosity will get the best of you. Exploitation films serve a very specific crowd and the niche of Naziplotation Is even smaller. That doesn't dismiss the genre at all. I personally have seen many of this films mentioned. There is something intriguing about them that is quite hard to explain. I will keep these films as my dirty little secret probably for the rest of my life. Nazithon: Decadence and Destruction is a fantastic compilation and exploration of the films that were banned in many places. Many of these would have never been made today and that's what makes this documentary a must see. Do yourself a favor and just find out a little about the way exploitation films can leave you feeling dirty but you simply can't quit watching them. If you donít have the balls to watch any of these films in their entirety then watching these excerpts will be perfect for you.
