Doesn't Know What it Wants to Be
2 October 2010 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

I had heard that this film was a parody of women-in-prison films, so when I rented it I was expecting to laugh, as well as see the usual exploitation elements--hopefully lampooned--but they weren't. This isn't a parody, though it tries for laughs in some places (who can forget the stomping-of-the-cat scene?), which makes it essentially just another women-in-prison flick.

Here we have misunderstood blonde Linda Carol taken to a reform school run by Sybil Danning and her obese henchwoman Pat Ast. Linda takes mousy Sherri Stoner under her wing, but when she runs afoul of butch reform school veteran--and Pat Ast's main squeeze--she puts a target on her back that remains there throughout the film. Linda tries to keep her weak-willed friend from harm while also trying to keep Wendy O. Williams from branding her backside. Reform school shrink Charlotte McGinnis is trying to get Danning fired for running a suspect reformation camp but she needs the help of Linda Carol in doing so. Linda finds it hard to help with trips to solitary, beatings in the bathroom and failed escape attempts.

STORY: $$ (This would have been better had DeSimone went with the parody angle. We have all the WIP stereotypes here but he fails to make fun of them. Rather than a parody, we are treated to a by-the-numbers Caged Heat clone).

ACTING: $$$ (Not too bad. Linda Carol is fine in the lead role. her beauty helps a great deal but the lady can act too. Pat Ast is terrific as the Warden's sinister right-hand. Wendy O. Williams doesn't give the greatest line reads but she was right for the role. Sybil Danning fans will be disappointed because she has little to do here, other than issue midnight scripture readings over the PA system).

NUDITY: $$$$ (Like most WIP films, there is plenty of it to go around. Linda Carol is nude several times--she has an extraordinary body. There are a couple shower scenes, which would have been a great opportunity to parody, but it is missed. Rough-looking Wendy O.Williams is topless in the shower, as is about every other woman in this film. Sybil Danning, however, keeps her clothes on throughout the movie).
