Storyline

In a women's prison in Brazil, the inmates are young and beautiful, the warden is a sadist, all but one of the guards are cruel, and the nurse is an incompetent cuckoo. To make it difficult for the inmates to hide contraband, they wear no underwear. They are alternately murderous and orgiastic with each other, and they engage in sex play with some of the guards. The warden pimps out inmates to wealthy lesbians. With the help of the nurse and under the cover of Carnival, three inmates stage an escape. Once out, will they contrive to stay undiscovered, or will their natures guarantee an ill-fated end to their attempt? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Bare Behind Bars (1980) **
9 August 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Do you enjoy violent, sleazy, sexy "Women In Prison" films? If so, then this one shouldn't disappoint, but it's not something just anybody can sit through. There's a lot of t&a and all sorts of depravity on display here, straight out of Brazil. Lesbian prison guards make out with the lady prisoners, perform cavity searches in their most private of areas, etc...

It's not very well directed (though fans may ask "so what?") and it doesn't always make a hell of a lot of sense. But there are a couple of disturbing sequences to be on the lookout for in scenes where a few female inmates escape and run wild in the streets - one of these involves castrating a man, and even a sicker display has the girls raping a pre-teenaged boy in his home as he moans "why? why?" (he may well find out in a few more years). ** out of ****
