Nazi Love Island (1980)

Directors: Gail Palmer & Bob Chinn

Starring: John Holmes, Seka, Sue Carol, Jade Wong, Nikki Anderson, Brenda Vargo, Elmo Lavino, Mai Lin, Gail Palmer

More info: IMDb

Plot: A shipwrecked World War II sailor comes to the rescue of two American nurses held in the clutches of a twisted Nazi officer and his three female assistants on a deserted South Pacific island.

My rating: 5.5/10

Will I watch it again? Nah.

"He's hiding a weapon!"

The original title, PRISONER OF PARADISE (available from Something Weird Video on a double bill with HITLER'S HARLOT (1973)), is considerably innocent compared to NAZI LOVE ISLAND. Being how this stars the, *cough*, talented John Holmes, you'll have figured out this is a XXX film; but this is back when porn had stories and production values. There's not much on plot and there's plenty of nudity and sleaze (of course) so it fits right in with the Nazisploitation genre.

This isn't the first porn entry with Nazis but it's the first with a 70s funk porn soundtrack that feels more at home in an episode of MAGNUM P.I.. It's actually pretty damn funny.

Pop quiz! John Holmes and an overweight Nazi douchebag are the only two men on a deserted island except for a handful of attractive women. Which guy gets the girls?


The sex scenes are actually pretty good. That was about the only thing that surprised me. Well, that and I made it through to the end without getting bored. That's no small order for a A) Nazisploitation flick, B) porn with plot, and C) Nazisploitation porn with a plot.
