Sex Penitentiary (1996)

* (out of 4)

Simona Valli goes undercover in prison and while there decides to screw every guy she can. With D'Amato directing you can't help but think of one of his Emanuelle movies due to the plot here but there's very little else in common. The story is pretty much placed in the background, as is to be expected, and the rest of the film is just sex. All of it is well filmed but there's very little else going on here.

Director Joe D'Amato will always be remembered for his horror films like BEYOND THE DARKNESS and ANTROPOPHAGUS as well as his long running Emanuelle series with Laura Gamser. After the Italian horror market dried up, D'Amato had a comeback with the softcore ELEVEN DAYS ELEVEN NIGHTS, which eventually led to the director doing porn titles. The director had previously mixed sex and horror in such titles as PORNO HOLOCAUST and EROTIC NIGHS OF THE LIVING DEAD but those films were a long way off from his later day porn.
