Title and Description
This is a WAY-Y-Y
over-the-top send-up of girls-in-prison movies. Perfectly cast, it's
a comic book on film and great fun to watch. Of course, the scene
stealers are Warhol alumni Pat Ast as the matron Edna and the
Plasmatics' Wendy O.Williams as "Charlie". Both of these ladies are
gone now but their contributions live on in this cult classic. Fast
paced and with a great soundtrack, you can watch this over and over
and still pick up stuff every time. Unfortunately, there is too much
female nudity (for a change) that distracts rather than titillates
but this is still a rocking movie. The climax is a kicker as well.
Good treatment from the folks at Anchor Bay.
This movie is a stone cold WIP
classic. This is about as much fun as you can have watching a Women
In Prison movie! The best way to describe this movie would be to say
that if Russ Meyer made a female prison camp movie, this would be
it, only better. The star, Phyllis Davis, is right out of a Russ
Meyer movie. Same build, same smart mouth. She is most famous for
being Dan Tana's secretary on the TV show Vegas. She has got to be
one of the best looking women to ever appear in an WIP movie.
As Roxie and Velma
worked their way through the criminal and judicial systems, the
creators of CHICAGO were astoundingly clever in superimposing a
musical version of each step in the process on the "real" one, for
examples, the on-site police investigation of Roxie's crime ("Funny
Honey"), Matron Morton's introductory speech to her new charges
("When You're Good to Mama"), Flynn's entrance ("All I Care About"),
and Roxie's defense ("We Both Reached for the Gun"). My favorite
comes during Roxie's trial when Flynn, more showman than counselor,
displays his philosophy on defense strategy with the glitzy "Razzle
In the venerated tradition of THE BIG
BIRD CAGE and CAGED HEAT comes a modern women-in-prison
film with a twist. Convicted of a crime she didn't commit, Sarah
McKinney (Oxenberg) is sentenced to hard time at the Women's State
Correctional Facility, a notorious prison run by a crooked warden
and a staff of sadistic, lecherous guards. Against her will, Sarah
is forced to participate in the prison's debased, humiliating "work
release program" -- a sex club where inmates are forced to perform
erotic dances and dole out illicit favors for the prison staff and
depraved county judge. Sarah's only hope for freedom lies in
exposing the crooked system -- if she can survive long enough to get
her message heard.
|The Arena (aka Naked
This is Roger Corman's version of Gladiator and Caligula rolled into one, years before them! And it's not bad, either. Beautiful slave girls must fight to the death in the arena in ancient Rome as a novelty for the jaded Romans. The gladiator girls learn to fight and then use their skills to revolt and escape. Sort of a feminist take on Spartacus.
|10 Violent Women.
Brutal female fury breaks loose in
this blistering saga of professional women gone bad! Ten beautiful
working girls decide they've had enough of the rat race and find a
quick way to solve their problems: robbery. The criminal she-pack
turns to jewelry heists (with water pistols!) to make ends meet;
unfortunately, their biggest score lands the girls in prison after a
bloody gunfight. Life behind bars offers only two choices for
survival: submit to the degrading sexual demands of the female
warden and her sadistic guards, or bust out!
How much trouble can
you get into abroad when trusting strangers? Quite a bit if you
witness the film 'Brokedown Palace' which is sort of a female
version of 1978's 'Midnight Express'. In that film, based on a true
story (which won Oliver Stone his first Oscar in the category of
Best Adapted Screenplay), an American named William Hayes was caught
trying to willfully smuggle drugs out of Turkey and was caught at
the airport and sentenced to life imprisonment. That film showed his
criminal attempt, his capture, his trial, his sentencing and his
torture at the hands of prison officials which was disturbing to
watch at times. Director Alan Parker was able to capture the
sadistic aspects of human rights gone awry and the film had depth,
brutal imagery and an overwhelming sense of violence necessary to
the film's point.
|Black Mama, White Mama (1972)
Pam Grier in a women-in-prison movie? Why did no one think of this sooner? OK, they did. Several times. But this one is different. Black Mama, White Mama is a bizarre update of The Defiant Ones with a little Cool Hand Luke and Chained Heat thrown in for good measure. Grier stars as Lee Daniels, a pimp-and-drug-lord's moll who's looking for a way to escape both prison and her thug boyfriend. The dynamic Margaret Markov ably backs her as rich-girl-turned-revolutionary Karen Brent. The two meet in the friendliest Third World prison ever (Tickling games in the shower! What girlish fun!), and before you can say catfight they're chained together at the wrist. A quick prison break later, our feisty ladies are being chased all over the undefined tropical island by the police, revolutionaries, and dueling pimps.
|Ilsa - She Wolf on the SS
This notorious Canadian
sexploitation cult classic is one of the most sick and sadistic
features ever released to a general audience, and the only film that
producer David F. Friedman, the king of sleaze himself, was so
ashamed of that he removed his name from it. Statuesque, buxom
blonde Dyanne Thorne is Ilsa, the ruthless commandant of a Nazi
medical camp who subjects her patients (mostly naked women) through
the most painful and brutal tortures she can think of to prove the
superiority of the female sex to Nazi high command. At night she
goes through the male prisoners like boy toys to be discarded and
castrated the next day ("Once a prisoner has slept with me, he'll
never sleep with another woman!"), until she meets a man she can't
conquer in bed. It proves to be her downfall. Vamping it up with a
corny German growl, Thorne leers with gargoylish delight at her
latest diabolical tortures: grotesque, gangrenous infections,
exploding sex toys, boiling alive, and a dinner centerpiece
involving a naked girl, a noose, and a melting block of ice that
leaves her dangling by meal's end. Directed with an artless
bluntness and a cold cynicism, it's a brutal, nasty film, utterly
tasteless yet perversely fascinating. It was reportedly shot in a
week on sets left over from the sitcom Hogan's Heroes, and proved so
successful that it spawned two official and one unofficial sequels.
Set in Brazil near the Amazon
River, young women are herded together in a human stockyard bound
for foreign cities, Brutalized by the slave traders who have become
their captors, as violence, rape and romance run rampant in this
exotic action-adventure. I'm afraid this one doesn't get very good
reviews however it's a must for any serious WIP movie collector.
|The Naked Cage.
After you've seen a few dozen women in prison (WIP) movies, it becomes hard to remember which is which. Oh sure, Chained Heat (1983) is the Linda Blair classic, and I'll remember Women in Cages (1971) for Pam Grier's turn as a wicked warden, and Ilsa will always be Ilsa... But, once you get past a few memorable ones with recognizable actors or weird settings, you get to a vast, sprawling morass of virtually indistinguishable movies. Oh sure, some are better than others in various ways, but they can all be described as "that movie about the innocent chick who gets sent to prison and has to deal with the tough inmate/guard/warden until she's released/rescued/escaped." The Naked Cage falls into that category at one level.
|Bamboo House of Dolls
A Women In Prison film from
director Kuei Chih-hung (who also did Killer Snakes), Bamboo House
Of Dolls takes its cues from the entries in this sub genre that came
before it but does the 'chicks in chains' thing with a decidedly
Hong Kong slant to it.Instead of nasty Nazis, this time around the
culprits are the Japanese (a very common antagonist in Chinese
cinema of this era), whose soldiers run a concentration camp for
Chinese women during the second world war.
This is the 1984 Cirio Santiago version of Caged Fury, not to be confused with the 1948 version which is apparently about a "Psycho lion tamer [who] uses the big cats to commit murders" in a circus. It also should not be confused with the 1993 porn flick Caged Fury which starred such adult film luminaries as Tiffany Minx and Peter North. Furthermore, this movie should not be confused with the 1989 women-in-prison movie of the same name that starred Erik Estrada in addition to porn stars Janine Lindemulder, Ron Jeremy, and Julia Parton in minor roles. Okay, so just to recap, this is a review of the 1984 movie... the one without circus animals or porn stars (as far as I know).
I read somewhere that the Showtime channel commissioned a bunch of the old exploitation and schlockmeisters to remake old films for a series on the channel. I picked up a movie a while back produced by Roger Corman called The Death Artist which is a faithful remake of A Bucket Of Blood. The Death Artist was Roger Corman's contribution to the series. Girls In Prison is the result of commissioning some of the old AIP people to make a Women In Prison movie. There was an AIP movie made in 1956 called Girls In Prison, but even though this modern version is set in the 1950s, the plot of this movie is different from the 1956 movie.

need I say more? At one point, during the requisite prison cafeteria
food-fight scene, several of the actresses literally crack up and
start giggling during their lines.
