Trivia

This is the companion film to Hell Penitentiary (1984). Because both films are directed by Gianni Siragusa (as Willy Regan) and feature most of the same cast, they are often confused with each other and believed to be one film. However, they are two entirely different films. See more »

Poorly made WIP flick with some vicious plot twists
3 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

"Hell Behind Bars" is a poorly made Women-In-Prison film in most respects (writing, directing, production values, casting, etc.), but what gives it some distinction is the viciousness of its plot twists (just don't look for much logic). Usually in WIP flicks there is one or more innocent, unjustly imprisoned characters that the audience is meant to root for - not here. Just about every important character in "Hell Behind Bars" is an amoral, cold-hearted potential killer. I don't want to spoil too much, so let's just say that Ajita Wilson ends up in prison but is in possession of some smuggled diamonds that a criminal organization wants back. Meanwhile, a team of prisoners led by the woman with the most fearsome reputation inside the prison are planning an escape. Most of the film consists of long sex scenes that are not very erotic. Only fanatics of low-budget Italian crime films will get something out of this. (*)
