Nothing New, But Nothing Boring
8 August 2005 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Fury in the Tropics" is Jess Franco's ninth women-in-prison film proper, although many of his other 150+ films have women-in-prison-type themes and situations. Lina Romay stars as the proverbial prostitute with a heart of gold who lives and works in a bamboo-built brothel, regularly servicing the freedom fighters who stroll through. She falls in love with one of her customers, and she and one of her sister call girls are sent to a women's prison, where they are promptly stripped and whipped in the prison yard in front of the other prisoners -- the two are whipped with a riding crop more than fifty times! Shortly thereafter the women are stripped and hung by their wrists and then have their breasts and private areas poked by a sword. The women plot their escape, but cannot be saved from an incredibly brutal gang rape, even vicious by Franco's standards and even more protracted than the similar scene in Franco's WIP film "Ilsa, the Wicked Warden." Yes, Jess certainly knows how to please his audience.

This film was shot in the early 1980's during a very low budget period in Franco's career, and as a result we really do not see one convincing prison set in this entire film, some of which looks as though it could have been shot in the back lot of a store or a mall. Nevertheless, no one who is going to watch this film is looking for the scenery. The cheap, sadistic WIP thrills are here in abundance, and unlike "Sadomania" or even the four-way female sex scene in "Women in Cell Block 9", there is absolutely no humor in "Fury in the Tropics", just torture, rape, a fat dictator general, a vicious lesbian wardress, and heavy drama. The acting is also quite good. Fans of Franco's other WIP films should not miss, though be aware that the alternate version of the film, entitled "Outlaw Women", is missing most of the prison S&M but has an extended escape ending not in the main version. A hardcore version, "Orgasmo Perverso", supposedly exists, but I don't believe it has ever turned up on video.
