Olga's House of Shame

Directed by Joseph P. Mawra
United States, 1964
Drama, Crime, Erotica
  • English
  • English, French, German, Spanish


The notorious exploitation entry that jumpstarted an entire “roughie” genre of S&M-tinged exploitation films. Audrey Cambell plays Olga, a sadistic jewel-thieving madame who hides in an abandoned mine and exacts all kinds of misery upon those who defy her—all told in oddball semi-documentary style.

Our take

“As the original negative for Olga’s House of Shame is incomplete, the restoration process benefitted from a variety of different sources in order to revive both picture and soundtrack. Given the fragmented nature of the film, it is extraordinary Olga can still exist in its full authenticity.” —NWR
