Women in Cages (1971)

Director: Gerardo de Leon

Starring: Judith Brown, Roberta Collins, Jennifer Gan, Pam Grier

More info: IMDb

Tagline: White skin on the black market!

Plot: When sadistic women's prison warden Alabama (Pam Grier) isn't harassing her female inmates in her torture chamber, she's maniacally seducing them, forcing them to bend to her every sexual whim. Soon after ditzy ex-stripper Jeff (Jennifer Gan) is sent to Alabama's prison for a crime she didn't commit, she finds she's no exception and must face the tyrannical warden.

My rating: 5.5/10

Will I watch it again? Nope.

#57 on Dusk to Dawn Drive-In Trash-o-Rama Show Vol. 1 (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

Man, there was a LOT of beating going on in this my living room. OH! But seriously, for a Women in Prison flick, it's not that shabby. There's plenty of nudity (not enough Pam Grier for my taste), torture, shower scenes and action to fill 78 minutes. The pacing's pretty good and there's more plot than most in this genre. The acting, including Grier, is poor but that's not why you watch movies like this. Most of the flick takes place in a jungle prison but once they escape, it's much more enjoyable. The scenery is gorgeous and the picture opens up quite a bit with the plot that leaves you with a very satisfying conclusion.
