Storyline

Sam Connor kidnaps his young daughters, April and May, sells them to strangers, and accidentally kills his wife when she attempts to intervene. Sixteen years later, April is an out of control outlaw who has come into a life of drugs and crime, while May has grown into a straight laced, refined woman. The plot thickens when April avenges her mother's death by killing her father, and May is sent to jail as the prime suspect. Fortunately, Detective Arman, instantly taken with May, fights for her innocence and tries to get her out before she is taken down by other hostile prisoners.

Respectable effort but some dud delivery
24 June 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Hey, I do peek at Babes Behind Bars flicks every so often. I even had a worn out copy of Chained Heat I bought at a closing video store.

History repeated itself when I got Banished Behind Bars (aka Cellblock Sisters) at 80% discount ($1.49 I believe was the price) at yet another video store closing sale. I figured that for that price, if there was a long shower scene, I would get that much worth. And I did but not a whole lot more. BTW, there was great care to minimize the pubic show in the showers.

I do believe this movie's set and uniforms have been used in several BBB movies, perhaps even Chained Heat, and some TV movies where prison was in the plot. Girls In Prison, a parody/remake of the 1950s version, was made perhaps just before or after this one.

The riot scene and the final gunfights did not come across, especially the death scene of the older sister. IMHO, the survivor should have ripped off Chained Heat a bit more by covering the body and/or kissing her departed sister. Her false stabbing of Mandy was just as much a take from CH.

I agree with previous posters that lesbian scenes could have been done. Also, I agree about the Brit babe's poorly designed fake tits.
