Olga's House Of Shame

Madame Olga (Audrey Campbell) runs an organization from an abandoned mine, where he corrupts women and sells them in the white slave trade, while at the same time torturing and abusing those who stand in her way.

I’m gonna keep this one short but sweet, just like the movie. There are five Olga films, one of them is lost, and this is the most famous one. After watching this, I can’t say I’m very interested in watching another one, although it’s easy to see why exploitation fans love it. It’s just plain ridiculous, and the fact that anybody thought it was shocking is the incredible part. The makeup effects are laughable, and the acting non-existent. The movie was shot silent, and all the dialogue is dubbed. Adding to this is a narrator that sounds like the guy from Night Court, which adds to the hilarity. Even more hilarious is the constant use of Wagner music for the soundtrack, particularly Night On Bald Mountain. I couldn’t stop laughing when I heard it, all I could imagine was Disney’s giant Satan abusing Olga. This might have been shocking once, but today it’s only good for a good chuckle.
On an interesting note, the film was produced by George Weiss, the same man who produced Ed Wood’s masterpiece of surrealism, Glen Or Glenda.
