DVD review: Angel of Death 2: The Prison Island Massacre (Video 2007) - Director's Cut Export Edition.

More sleaze from Andreas Bethmann, he is director, wrote the screenplay and is the producer. He also plays the role of Dr. Morpho. On a small, secluded island is a horrible women's prison under the control of Mrs. Steel  (Linda Romay). All she cares about is to satisfy her own sick sexual desires and that her cadaver discipline is maintained. The film's main character is a woman who has ended up in this prison where she is subjected to torture and humiliation even though she has not committed any crime. But her father has hired a force of mercenaries to rescue her. 
There is plenty of bad acting, the pacing is slow and the action sequences are badly made.
We do get lots of nudity, degradation, torture, sadism, explicit sex scenes (both straight and gay for both sexes).
There is only one extreme gore scene and Olaf Ittenbach provides the special fx so that scene will surely delight fans of blood and gore. The DVD box in my possession contains four discs (three different versions of the film and a disc with bonus material). The review is based on the 105 minute Director's Cut Export Edition which has english subtitles.
Rating: 1½ out of 7.  Angel of Death 2: The Prison Island Massacre isn´t a good film , it´s mostly boring but it is a very very sleazy flick. The special fx made by Ittenbach are truly the highlight of the film and Angel of Death 2: The Prison Island Massacre would have been better if they had less action, took out the explicit gay sex scenes, perhaps it´s a sign of double standard from my side but those scenes didn´t work at all for me, and had more sleaze and more Ittenbach-style fx.
