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>

not that sleazy as said
3 March 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This here is a perfect example of seventies drive-in sleaze. up to my review it isn't available on DVD. You can find it on a double feature VHS but it doesn't go cheap on the web. Still, the copy I have is still in excellent condition. No extra hiss or scratches or damaged tape. Lucky to have such copy. But was I lucky to see it, well, it's a good story and I was surprised about the excellent filming and even editing. But of course the director Gus Trikonis became a famous director of television series the best known, Baywatch. So you can see that he had it to make it. Even the cast in this flick went further into the business and it shows also because they all act pretty well. But naturally, it's drive-in style so nothing really happens, you got 3 girls which are really bad ones in jail so they are send to some kind of farm were they get involved in experiments. They have to take drugs so from nasty girls they become really nasty girls. There is a bit of nudity in it, a catfight in a penitentiary, and some fights. But it's funny to see it all just for the hairstyles and the clothes. So 70's. If you collect grindhouse or exploitation than you must have it, because some actors and the director made it in the scene. But for me it lacked a bit of sleaze, yes, the fountain was sleazy but still, I have seen better drive-in's. My version clocked in at 86 minutes and not as stated on IMDb as 76 minutes...
