Linda Blair plays Carol, a young woman who must serve 18 months in prison after killing a man (by accident). The prison turns out to be brimming with decadence, corruption and sleaze, where the other female inmates are sadistic crack-selling lesbian rapists and the guards and warden are no better. Racial tensions are high as the inmates is divided into two factions, blacks and whites, who must either join together against the management or kill each other trying. A sleazy blend of sexploitation and blaxploitation make this movie a real winner.Written by

No women-in-prison film to-date has been able to match the wit, sleaze, and outright gaudiness of this eye candy crowbar classic. Critics in general have dismissed it for years, never giving it the credit for which it deserves within the ranks of its own genre (a common mistake of film critics and dizzy fanboy movie buffs). Only recently have some film guides come around. For example, the recent edition of the Blockbuster Movie Guide rates the film as a modern classic for the genre. NOTE: In the Vestron Video release of Chained Heat those "boom mics" are visible because the film was not matted to its intended aspect ratio of 1:66. In the Japanese matted release (or letterboxed if you will), those boom mics are not visible.
