Set in the fictional third world country of Canpuna, 'Werewolf in a Womens Prison' is the story of Sarah (Victoria De Mare), when camping with her boyfriend, is attacked by a werewolf. She wakes up in a corrupt prison only to find out her boyfriend has been torn apart and she is the only suspect. Forced to do things only found in a prison populated only by women it's only a matter of time until that strange bite starts to take effect.Written by
I liked it. I also liked The Rats Are Coming, The Werewolves Are Here, so, what the hell do I know?
Face it, these two sub genres were bound to get in each others way, sooner or later. Considering how long it took this new school Exploitation cross over to happen, the least we could do is give it an honest chance. Well, that's what I did. Was it really worth it? Sure, why not? And yes, I realize Werewolves aren't the most intriguing of Horror legends, but with a title like that, the curiosity of the average B-horror fan should kick in automatically. At least mine did. With curiosity in high gear, lowering your expectations might be a good idea. It was for me. Hardly a groundbreaking script, but a humorous one, nonetheless, after all, that's what we're here for. A couple is out in the woods camping. The guy is attacked, and killed by a Werewolf, the chick is bitten, and survives. She wakes up in a Mexican womens prison, and learns that she's been charged with her husbands murder. If that wasn't enough, this particular prison is as corrupt as prisons come, so, this chick ain't getting nothing unless she gives a little something back. The sadistic Warden and his equally sadistic right-hand women may not like what she has in store for them. Whether they like it or not, whether Sarah likes it or not, a bloodbath will ensue. No doubt the worst Werewolf this Millennium has seen, so far. Now, with everything else we know, you may ask yourself, did a spoof on An American Werewolf In London really make this Exploitation joke the least bit more appealing? And we're talking about cheap, Z-grade effects coming from every direction. Kinda reminds me of one of those softcore's on Cinemax, like Lord Of The G-strings, or Playmate Of The Apes, which couldn't possibly be a positive thing, right? Not even as well thought out as a Troma movie, Werewolf In A Womens Prison has very little going for it in the storyline/script department, and barely makes up for it with hotness. Come to think of it, I just took for granted that this was a low-budget horror movie that included sex scenes, maybe it's a low-budget softcore porn which happens to include gory killings, now I'm confused, obviously this movie wasn't meant to make one think. At least we know it's low-budget. Hardly the grandest Werewolf epic I've come across, certainly no Werewolves On Wheels, but it'll do, I suppose. Worth at least 11/2 viewings. You can call it 70's-ish, you can call it Tromaesque, but can you call Werewolf In A Womens Prison entertaining? Sure, why not? 6/10
