Storyline

Carrie, Mitzie, and Chicago get in trouble a lot in the women's prison, but are offered early parolement if they agree to become subjects of a study on human aggression and antisocial behavior at a Kansas City college. Dr. Blalock, the professor in charge of the study, is accepting money under the table from a shady government contact to use an experimental drug on the women. The drug induces the same hostile behavior the doctor is supposedly trying to cure, and after a while the women have a hard time conducting themselves in a civil manner. Carrie begins figuring out the scam and must rely on Blalock's son to help her. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

This starts out as a WIP film with three female convicts getting in a brawl in a prison laundry room. Afterwards, the fed-up warden decides to send them to a special experimental program at the local college, after which they'll be completely released. If this sounds like a bad idea, it gets worse--the real intention of the program is to experiment on them with a dangerous psychotropic drug. Of course, as is typical for these movies, the three girls are much more meant to be scrumptious pieces of tail than they are to be remotely believable as hardened criminals. The trio quickly make all the other girls on campus jealous, and the lead (Jillian Kessner) becomes involved with the son of the corrupt professor heading the experiment (much to the dismay of the latter since he kind of has a thing for her himself). After a (kind of) wild pool party where everyone gets naked, the effects of the drugs kick in, and the movie starts to get enjoyably ridiculous.

Under the effects of the drug, the Kessner character ends up becoming a VERY serious student, who punctuates her points by hurling an ashtray at the wall. The character "Chicago" (Maria Heiden), who was a nymphomaniac to begin with, actually tries to rape a guy and beats his girlfriend when she tries to intervene. Most hilarious though is the third girl "Mitzi" (June Fairchild) who is VERY obsessed with penguins as the result of having been molested by a priest. Obviously, this is highly implausible (since when do Catholic priests molest GIRLS?). Still, there's a great scene where the girls are spending a night on the town (taking in a showing of "Deep Throat"!) and "Mitzi" spots a VERY large stuffed penguin in a shop window. (Obviously, things don't end well for the window).

The movie is presented in a pretty straight manner and the end seems completely earnest, but director Gus Trikonis HAD to have been in on the joke here. (It's a definitely an improvement over his previous film "Swinging Barmaids" in any event). There's not as much nudity as you might expect. Kessner, who will look vaguely familiar to anyone who watched American TV in the 70's or 80's, has a brief topless scene. Strangely, the nymphomaniac has no nude scenes though. Perhaps he best thing about this, however, is June Fairchild, who had played "Sonny Swingle", one of the many pretty maids in the wonderful 70's trashfest "Pretty Maids All in a Row". She doesn't go full-frontal here like she did in that one, but you do get to see her cute little butt during the skinny-dipping scene. Moreover though, she's just generally great (she DEFINITELY wasn't in enough movies). Recommended, especially for fans of 70's sexploitation.
