Quotes

Grear: You son of a bitch! This is for Bodine. You're rotten, Harry. You know why? 'Cos you're a man. All men are filthy. All they ever want to do is to get at you. For a long time I let them get at me. That's why I'm in this dump. But no more. You hear me? I'm not going to let a man's filthy hands touch me again.

For some reason I was expecting more from this films. I don't know why.

It began well enough with opening credits that stylishly zoom in and Pam Grier singing 99 years (which also featured in the film Jackie Brown).

For the first hour this Corman produced Women in Prison film was a great slice of exploitation cinema. It was surprisingly well made, with good characters and above average acting. Pam Grier and Sid Haig standing out above the rest of the cast.

Then after about an hour the film becomes repetitive and boring. The same things happening over and over again. Still its good while it lasts, maybe just turn it off when it starts too get boring.

For a better Women in Prison film try maybe Ilsa: She-wolf of the SS.
