‘Women’s prison’ pictures have been fascinating audiences long before explicit films
came about. Guys were getting off on Ida Lupino, Susan Hayward, Mari Blanchard, Marie
Windsor and Barbara Steele and all explicit films did was take that giant step forward to
ease the imagination. As mentioned before, I come from the ‘once you’ve seen the city the
farm don’t hack it no more’ school.

Henri Pachard churns out a grimy little grinder with a lot of impact that was overlooked
by many critics. Ginger is the innocent babe tossed into the slammer on trumped up pros
titution charges. Paul Thomas runs the place with an iron hand and a vaseline glove, assisted
by Kelly Nichols, who plays inmate Killer. The CAGED HEAT crowd can enjoy Joey and
Ginger in the van, followed by a wide assortment of behind bars boffing. Guards like Howard,
Chelsea and Payne take liberties with prisoners Raven and Kristara, who is outstanding in
the rat hole crawl scene. Never fear, the major feature of women in jail is the obligatory
lesbian stuff, a sudden scene with Ginger and Raven. Bad people get their comeuppance.
Killer saves the day and escape has to be in order. Some will find this sleeper rather slimy,
but fans will find it hot. Raincoat stuff.
