Somewhere in the jungles of South America mercenaries stop a truck which has allegedly loaded fruit. The cargo turns out to be six young women. Apprehended and handed over to the custody of the local women's prison.
After her recent release from a deep psychiatric care institution, a Libertine-styled countess goes back to her very evil ways and fixes her eyes on a pretty girl with the intention to destroy her after fully corrupting her body and soul.
In an unspecified South American hellhole, various women from different walks in life are aggressively kidnapped to serve as sex slaves for the male members of a guerrilla army. A new bride named Angela (Ada Tauler) becomes the focal point as she finds herself drawn to a dude named Chino (Wal Davis). The "commander" who watches over the gals is Isla (Nanda Van Bergen), and she decapitates prisoners who don't get with the program.
Obviously drawing some inspiration from the "Ilsa" series - right down to the name of the Van Bergen character - this variation on the "women in prison" picture from celebrated Eurotrash director Jess Franco is okay, but you sense that he's mostly going through the motions. Fans of his 70s sleaze will still be fairly satisfied, considering the amount of nudity (female *and* male), loving close-ups of crotches, and sex (lesbian and straight) on display. There is also a dose of torture, but these scenes are not very graphic, and again, you feel as if most of the participants involved don't really have their heart in this.
The dubbing is poor, the on-screen performances adequate (Van Bergen does seem to be enjoying herself), and the English dialogue is sometimes pretty funny.
Die hard Francophiles may find some value in this, although ultimately it's rather mild stuff in terms of all-out nastiness.
Six out of 10.
