This is one of many so called Video Nasties about fictionalized World War 2 Nazi POW camp atrocities. A beautiful, nefarious senior female SS officer/doctor (Magall) creates a genetic, mutant human Beast (half man/half beast). The Beast is a rapacious, squat, mongoloid sex fiend which she uses to torture and molest female prisoners while the Nazis watch. The vertically challenged beast is kept on a diet of mega-aphrodisiacs. There is plenty of sadistic titillations, gore and nudity in this Nazi sub-genre exploitation flick.
Luigi Batzella’s “Beast in Heat” is a hyper sleazy and hyper hilarious and just plain sick nazi exploitation turkey that beats every other film of the questionable genre. The film rips so many other films and documentaries off it makes you laugh alone. There are many scenes of some war documentaries that have extremely bad picture quality. The same thing is with Bruno Mattei’s “Hell of the Living Dead” that rips also everything possible off, including the Goblin score from “Contamination” and “Dawn of the Dead”. “Beast in Heat” is also very graphic with its violence, mainly towards naked females that get abused and sexually violated as we can expect. Plenty of nudity and pubic hair ripped off and then eaten by the monster and so on. The film doesn’t even have a credits in its beginning; I’ve heard that every member of the crew, including the director, wanted to take their names off from this film. Overall, “Beast in Heat” is surely wild,so fans of Italian exploitation won’t be disappointed.
