Campy fun!
4 January 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of those made for TV movies of the week. Campy fun, just don't take it too seriously. Lois Nettleton as a parole agent who goes undercover in a women's prison to investigate brutality. Of course, once she's inside her friend (who is the only one who knows who she really is) is killed, leaving her to fight for her life. Ida Lupino gives an over the top performance as a "butch" prison matron who gets her thrills beating up the inmates. Very entertaining movie if you like unbelievable fare and performers who have fun with their roles. I wish there was a cable channel showing these made-for-TV flicks, they were quite memorable.
