Four female convicts break out of prison, and during their escape they take hostage a bus full of young female tennis players. They drive the bus to the house of the judge who originally sent them to prison, where--since this is after all a women-in-prison picture--the hostages undergo various forms of physical and sexual abuse in various degrees of nudity.

Did You Know?


A DVD (BCI 46758-9 "Women Behind Bars Double Feature") of the dubbed English-language 76-minute version has the the title "Escape from Women's Prison" on the packaging, but has the on-screen title [first screen] "Escape from Woman's Prison" [second screen] "A Story of Sex and Violence." Somebody at BCI Eclipse Company, LLC should have caught the change from the on-screen's singular "Woman's" to the packaging's plural "Women's." See more »

Foreign muck
10 February 2005 | by SheriffOFlannahanSee all my reviews

The plot outline for this film promised so much, a group of French/Italian (its difficult to tell) female prisoners break out of their prison, and set out on the run, killing a few police officers and kidnapping a bus load of young tennis players, this seems a perfect setting for an "erotic thriller", but as is to be expected from a very low budget European film from the late seventies, the film fails to live up to any of this potential. This film is a laughable, poorly dubbed, appallingly edited story which tries to be intelligent, managing to achieve the seemingly impossible combination of pretentiousness and stupidity. The film has few redeeming features, but the main one is that it is quite a good laugh to watch with a few mates when drunk, especially at the hilarious musical score and the cheap and nasty production values, (at one point it actually switches from widescreen to normal, then back to widescreen a few minutes later). If you wanted you could probably kid yourself into thinking this was an art-house film since its foreign and attempts to deal with "issues" in societies, which it does rather clumsily, otherwise just watch it and laugh.
