That show of yours last night was positively disgusting. Given the chance to express yourselves you went straight to the gutter. Even for criminals you're just a particularly poor reflection on womanhood.

Caged Heat has all the typical elements of a 70s women-in-prison film; a cruelly sadistic warden and prison guards, wrongfully imprisoned inmates, lust-crazed, predatory lesbians, inmate rivalries, etc. This particular film genre, was as ubiquitous during the 70s, as the Afro hairdo.
It's a Roger Corman pic, starring Roberta Collins, and a few other actors who appeared in many of his other AIP films. It has the low-budget veneer of Corman's other films, along with the nudity, gratuitous sex, over-the-top violence, and subversive story-lines that are Corman's signature as a producer.
This movie isn't the worst of the low-budget women-in-prison films, but I've seen better. For those that like this movie genre, Caged Heat offers adequate, if mediocre entertainment.
