A women's prison on a tropical island is a hellhole where the inmates are raped, tortured and otherwise abused by the evil commandant and brutal guards. However, one of the guards falls in love with a beautiful inmate, and decides to help her and all the other prisoners escape. Written by
Typical early 80s WIP (women in prison) film, pretty awful as one might expect, but even if we apply the low standards of the genre it remains awful. It even fails on the level of sleaziness and depravity, as the performances are generally lackluster and the pace is pedestrian. It may be coincidence, but I could not help noticing that some of the main people responsible for this are gay men; it is a clear sign that they have (unsurprisingly) no feel for this kind of genre.
