Storyline

Terry, a social-climbing young woman accidentally gets caught up in the activities of two revolutionaries, Blossom and Django, and finds herself in a concentration camp for women. In the center of the camp is a towering wooden machine ("The Big Bird Cage") in which the women risk their lives processing sugar as the evil warden looks on. The prisoners are subjected to sadistic cruelty from the guards and fellow prisoners, and all attempts at escape are dealt with...permanently. Terry's only hope for escape lies in Blossom and her revolutionary allies. Written by Jonathan Ruskin <JonRuskin@aol.com>

I never had one like that before!
16 March 2012 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

Pam Grier and Sid Haig; what a combination. They are revolutionaries, and plot to get into a women's prison to get recruits for their cause. Lots of fighting; even mud wrestling.

While Grier works inside the prison, Haig pretends to be gay to get next to the head guard (Vic Diaz).

This women's prison had a male Warder played by Andres Centenera. He is a real character.

Anitra Ford(Invasion of the Bee Girls) provided another interesting character as a nymphomaniac actress, which the government wanted out of town - so they locked her up.

Lots of action especially at the end.
