Back again everybody! So, with this review, I have finally completed reviews for all of the Ilsa movies here at Varied Celluloid. Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks was my last of the series to finish, and although failing in many of the ways that the other films did as well it at least breaks free of some of the convention that the other films establish and paints Ilsa in a different light than her usual. Hope everyone is having a good one and enjoys this classic piece of sleaze!

The Review: My journey through the world of Ilsa the She Wolf comes to a close with my final review, the last of the series that I have not seen: Ilsa Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks. This has been roughly a four or five year journey now, starting with Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, suffering through Ilsa: The Wicked Warden, having an ‘alright’ time with Ilsa: Tigress of Siberia and culminating here the actual second film in the series. Although I won’t lie and say that these films are really all that great, but there’s something appealing about them. Maybe it’s just Dyanne Thorne and her gigantic breasts or maybe it’s the cheesy torture sequences, it’s hard to pin down. The one thing I know for sure is that here I am, four movies in and I’m still interested in more Ilsa stories! The entire series never really deviates much from the set pattern of the first film, and Ilsa: Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks continues in the same vein even moreso than the other films in the series. Ilsa is here in all of her German accent speaking glory (in the desert), with another pair of twin bodyguards to protect her before she runs into an American man who knows how to give her everything she could ever want. The biggest difference this time around is the fact that Ilsa, well, she shows her softer side!
