Banned as a video nasty in 1985, then banned by the BBFC in 2002. Uncut elsewhere but there have only been a few obscure releases until the promised 2017 US DVD and Blu-ray.

The US distributor Bue Underground has announced that it is releasing the pioneering Naziploitation classic Love Camp 7 to Blu-ray & DVD early next year in its complete Uncensored Version.

It is one of the original video nasties banned in the UK and will feature a brand-new 4K scan from the recently discovered original camera negative!

The BBFC were gushing with praise for the film when it was banned in 2002. The BBFC explained the ban saying:

The film contains numerous scenes of women prisoners being abused, tortured and humiliated by their Nazi captors. Indeed the whole purpose of the work is to invite male viewers to relish the spectacle of naked women being humiliated for their titillation. LOVE CAMP 7 contains both eroticised depictions of sexual violence and repeated association of sex with restraint, pain, and humiliation. These sequences were in clear contravention of the Board’s strict policy on depictions of sexual violence, which prohibits scenes that eroticise or endorse sexual assault. The possibility of cuts was considered. However, because the sexual violence runs throughout the work cutting was not considered to be a viable option.
