Get back in the sack you rotten lesbo.
14 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When you have a queue of 500 movies, you sometimes forget why you picked a particular one. I am not a women-in-prison completest, so maybe I just wanted to see Paola Senatore (Eaten Alive, Story of a Cloistered Nun), Jenny Tamburi (The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine) or Anita Strindberg (The Eroticist) again. It simply escapes me. Two WIP movies in the same day may be excessive, but it happened by accident.

This one starts with a good car chase through the Italian streets as Hilda (Anita Strindberg) is getting her anal exam by a matron after entering prison to find out where Daniela's (Jenny Tamburi) boyfriend hid the heroin and save her father.

It isn't long before we see our first lesbian encounter. Isn't that why we watch WIP movies? Along with the obligatory shower scenes. Of course, the guards (matrons) get their turn, too. Then there are the prison yard fights where the object is to rip the clothes of your opponent.

The "riot" in the prison yard was a hoot. They turned the firehouses on the girls, and it was like water hoses. They stripped and got wet.

Just another day in prison.
