Women in prison "Video Nasty"
20 May 2009 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

This film has been a special target of mine for some time; not because I particularly enjoy the women in prison genre; but simply because it was the only film on the DPP's Video Nasty shopping list that I hadn't seen. Anyway, the inclusion of this film on the Video Nasty list would seem to be another huge error from the DPP. The 'women in prison' genre has no shortage of vile, exploitative efforts; and many of those would deserve a place on the Video Nasty list. This one, however, is one of the least exploitative I've ever seen and yet it's the only women in prison film on there! Furthermore, the film actually has a plot! It focuses on a diamond robbery; followed by the murder of the man that did it by his girlfriend, who is then sent to a women's prison where she is subjected to some mild exploitation. There's some lesbian sex and stuff featured; but nothing really that 'bad'. The film does feel cheap and nasty in places; but the cinematography is decent and it feels like a professional production. It has to be said that the film is a little bit dull at times; but it doesn't overstay it's welcome at less than eighty minutes and just for the fact that it has some story, I'd rate this among the better films of the genre.
