Ruthless narcotics dealer and white slavery ring leader Olga keeps her harem of girls in line by hooking them on addictive drugs. Olga suspects an informant in their midst and uses various brutal methods of torture to weed out the squealer. Meanwhile, several of Olga’s girls plot their revenge against Olga for her continual sadistic treatment of them.
Writer/director Joseph P. Mawra scrupulously covers all the essential sordid bases with often sleazy and hence most enjoyable results: lots of lovely ladies in various stages of undress, copious drug use (the swingin’ pot party set piece rates as a definite racy highlight), lesbianism, oodles of savage and inhumane torture, fetishism (Olga wears a black rubber “Cape of Persuasion” while meting out cruel punishments to her more recalcitrant gals), dismemberment, harsh violence (the informant has her tongue cut off!), and even a heated protracted catfight. The lack of direct sound and excessive use of solemn narration give this picture the strange feel of a forbidden micro-budget “adults only” silent feature gone seriously sick and seedy. William Rose’s stark inky black and white cinematography perfectly captures all the on-screen depravity. Clyde Otis’ neatly varied score uses familiar classical music cues to genuinely jarring effect. Entertaining low-grade sleaze.
