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?


The idea for the plot came from a newspaper story about a female terrorist. See more »


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 »

Alternate Versions

"Escape from Women's Prison" (as it appears on the "Sweet Sugar / Escape From Women's Prison" Continental Video double-feature tape) was cut by over 10-minutes in order to fit onto the same VHS/Beta tape as "Sweet Sugar." See more »

"ESCAPE" is a wonderful film from the land that time forgot. Actually it's pretty much a cut-rate exploitation movie, but it's got a lot going for it: sex, violence, some pretty hilarious dialouge, and a busload of nubile tennis players. throw a terrorist, a judge, a nymphomaniac, a lesbian prostitute, and a woman who is obsessed with food and you have the ultimate party movie. Actually, your friends will probably hate it, but for you undiscriminate types out there (and you know who you are) search out this gem before it becomes extinct. Originally on a double feature tape with "Sweet Sugar" at a running time of 70 min. I have the original uncut version at 100 min. (get this one).
