Storyline

Emanuelle, a reporter, comes just a little too close to exposing a corrupt official, and is sent to prison on trumped-up charges. In the prison, the inmates are constantly humiliated and tortured by the prison staff. Overly affectionate prisoners are forced underwater, while others are obliged to look on. Emanuelle finds an enemy in the deranged Albina, who "runs the prison." For the pleasure of the warden, Emanuelle and Albina are forced to fight each other with knives. Bad becomes worse when four men awaiting execution escape and take over the prison. Gore flows like water. Written by Jonathan Ruskin <JonRuskin@aol.com>

Trivia

In the sentencing scene, the judge reveals Emanuelle's last name to be "Arsan." This ties her to the author of the original "Emmanuelle: Joys of a Woman" Emmanuelle Arsan. See more »

Alternate Versions

The American version omits the final scene in which Harrison talks with Emanuelle about re-opening her case before she returns to her cell. However, it does have an ending montage of all the violent scenes in the movie (the shootout with the swat team, the Russian roulette, Emanuelle's rape, Harrison getting shot, etc.) when Harrison has Henderson pinned against the chain-link fence. All other versions lack this montage. See more »

One of the Greatest!
7 October 1999 | by Dolemite-19See all my reviews

Every once in a while there are films that come along and enlighten us. For some it was ET for others it was Gone With the Wind and for me it was Women's Prison Massacre! I Felt moved just by picking up the box at the video store. This movie has everything sleaze, torture, sex, rape, throat ripping, violence, forced suicide, more sleaze, more sex, more torture, and more bullet hits then Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs put together. When the credits rolled tears fell from my eyes. Bravo! Bravo! I love this movie!!
