A women's prison on a tropical island is a hellhole where the inmates are raped, tortured and otherwise abused by the evil commandant and brutal guards. However, one of the guards falls in love with a beautiful inmate, and decides to help her and all the other prisoners escape.Written by
Somewhere in the Pacific Ocean a small group of white supremacists (possibly former Nazis) have set up a slave operation which utilizes native women to work on the plantation and provide sexual services when it pleases them. They also use native men to help guard the female workers as well. Life is good for the white slave owners. However, trouble begins when one of the white guards named "Hartman" (Udo Kier) falls in love with a native girl by the name of "Cora" (Janet Lopez) and subsequently attempts to help her escape. From then on the film pretty much includes one scene after another in which the white guards beat and humiliate the native women whenever they feel like it. Yet, even though this is a standard theme in all "Women-in-Prison" (WIP) movies the producers failed to incorporate a serious plot which could have improved this film immensely. As a matter of fact, about the only two good things going for this movie was the beautiful tropical island scenery and the presence of the aforementioned Janet Lopez who was certainly easy on the eyes. Other than that this movie was almost a complete waste of time. As such I have rated it accordingly. Below average.
