Young and innocent Carol (Linda Blair) is thrown into a particularly rough women's prison, where the warden (John Vernon) and chief Taylor (Stella Stevens) actually compete in supplying the inmates with drugs, where the guards use the inmates as sextoys, and where black inmates led by the Duchess (Tamara Dobson) and the white inmates led by Ericka (Sybil Danning) constantly clash - and somehow the situation escalates to a point where Carol is raped by the warden himself.

Carol's best friend Val (Sharon Hughes) promises to have her revenge on the warden, so  she, knowing he always tapes his (sex-)sessions with his inmates, seduces him and plans to then get her hands on the tape to create a scandal. But while she and the warden are at it, chief Taylor and her right-hand-woman guard Boots (Kendal Kaldwell) enter the scene and kill the warden, then drag Val away to kill her too somewhere in the prison's corridors - but Carol finds her and Val tells Carol everything with her dieing breath.

As the whole incident is investigated by commissioner Kaufman (Nita Talbot), chief Taylor and her drug supplier Lester (Henry Silva) decide to pin the whole thing on Ericka, exactly the woman who organized the whole drugpushing scheme for them - but when everything seems lost for the girls, Carol comes up with a scheme to cause a riot during which Carol would be able to steal the tape of the warden#s death from the warden's room and somehow get it to commissioner Kaufman, a plan for which even Ericka and teh Duchess join forces and which leads to massive fighting and chasing all through the prison, which neither Boots nor Ericka survive, but at the end of which chief Taylor and Carol go one on one - with the result of Carol being able to push the chief from the prison wall.


Sleaze as sleaze can. Apart of me just can't help to love this film, si9mply for its totally sleazy story and  its (intentional) lack of redeeming values or a moral of its story. Rather than that the film is just a feeble excuse to show naked women, violence and of course catfights. That said, the film is far from perfect in its sleaziness, actually it's not especially explicit and at times takes the only hinting at things even a bit too far, plus Linda Blair (who has a topless scene in this one) just doesn't go along too greatly with the sleaze while not being a good enough actress to impress anyways. That said the film is still good fun thanks to Sybil Danning at her bitchiest, Tamara Dobson, Sheila Stevens, John Vernon at his sleaziest and Henry Silva. Not a classic, but as I said, good fun.
