Storyline

In all the annals of exploitation cinema, there has never been anything quite like it: Take a luscious young bride (beautiful Playboy centerfold Ursula Fellner) thrust into a brutal prison camp run by a sadistic woman warden (the stunning transsexual adult film star Ajita Wilson). Add generous helpings of lesbian lust, bestial perversion and some very extreme violence. Then mix in a jaw-dropping performance by the films controversial director as a degenerate white slaver. Do you dare take a forbidden taste of the wildest women-in-prison movie ever made?

Most female nudity you'll ever see in a film...
13 August 2004 | by (Culo de borrego) – See all my reviews

... and that ain't no lie.

After about the first seven or so minutes, it's literally non stop. I have heard people say that movies such as The Dreamers, Desperate living, ken Park, e.t.c e.t.c feature the most nudity, but let me tell you, although there is hardly any male nudity, there is not one scene longer than one minute where there isn't some type of nudity.

Anyway, with that somewhat important detail out of the way, this isn't the best exploitation movie out there, but then again, it is not the worst. The film is kind of slow at parts, and the constant display of breasts is a bit redundant. but a good redundant, the type that someone like me would enjoy. Two parts highlight this film and really stuck in my mind. The first, when Ajita Wilson (a transsexual actress with a very well constructed vagina) is masturbating with her long cane type spear thingy, while her croonies "play" with a man. I don't know why, but this scene just makes me burst into laughter. No reason, just thinking about it now makes me giggle. The second actually took me by shock, and involves an impotent man who can only get it up while watching a rabid dog rape a girl tied to a chair. this scene is really creepy, and has a serious genuinely sinister feel to it. Only two scenes ever made me cringe while watching a movie, and they're the Horse jerk scene from Emmanuelle in America, and the bestiality in Sadomania.

A good film, that may be a bit slow for most fans of exploitation.

If for anything, see it for the landmark display of flesh.
