        88Films has re-released another film on the infamous Video Nasty list. Told in flashback, the survivor of a Nazi camp recounts the horrors. Though the movie is probably not as outrageous as the title suggests, The Gestapo's Last Orgy is still some heavy stuff.  For those non-familiar, Last Orgy is pretty much standard Nazi-exploitation fare. It checks off all the hallmarks like ultra-gore, torture and an overflowing eroticism.  There is a plot but I think thats generous -this movie is more of a carnival of gore and sick-fetishism. I would say casual fans outside of Grindhouse lovers will probably find this both tasteless and repetitive. Though, fans of nasty will no doubt find enough gross-out and bare flesh to find this engaging. However, the latter camp may find this a bit too tame. Furthermore, the filmmakers try to slap a "message" to gloss over its exploitation trappings. 

I will say that despite this I think the movie is grimy enough to merit a watch if this kinda stuff is your bag. 


Picture: Much like The Chinese Boxer, The Gestapo's Last Orgy has a really nice looking 1080p transfer. There is a staggering amount of brightness and refreshed clarity. Colors really pop here and you really see 88Films impressive sharpness that they bring. There are times when you can even see the texture in costumes. There is also very little to no artifacts or scratches to be found as well. Really a stunning looking. 

Sound: Last Orgy has a DTS 2.0 English Mono and Italian Mono with English subs. Dialogue comes through nicely, as does the score and sound design. No unwanted background noise.

Extras: This film is packed with some great extras. Included is: Commentary with Troy Howarth and Nathaniel Thompson, a second track with Samm Deighan. Also included is:

Alternate Italian Ending, Remembering Alberto Baldan Bembo-An Interview with Pierpaolo De Sanctis, One Thing On His Mind: An Interview Luigi Cozzi, English Trailer
