In the 1960s David Friedman and H.G. Lewis had already created nudie cinema and were looking for something new to make money since the market was being flooded with naked women. During a brainstorming session the two decided that making a movie filled with gore would be their next project and Friedman suggested it be set in a Nazi concentration camp full of torture and degradation. Lewis, abhorring any kind of violence that seemed too realistic, vetoed the idea and they decided to go with the over-the-top idea of what would become the first gore flick, Blood Feast. Not surprisingly in 1975 Friedman would produce the most legendary nazisploitation film of all time; Ilsa the She-Wolf of the SS starring the iconically sexy Dyanne Thorne.
