Mildly Entertaining Melodrama
29 October 2015 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

You can find this in the Mill Creek Drive-in 50-films pack - that I how I acquired a copy - it's not a great copy in the pack but it is a copy. This one is not a grand film but it's somehow a mildly entertaining period melodrama in it's way.

Women are brought to Devil's Island, enslaved in a prison and forced to wade though alligator filled swamps in search of gold. A few of the women escape into freedom and end up making plans to get the gold they all worked and slaved so hard for. There is a new prison governor (warden) coming in to the prison system and plans on making some reforms.

This movie actually makes a fairly good manatee. Again, the film is not grand but it oddly entertaining.

3/10
