Jennifer (Yvette Yzon), a tough-as-nails chick, has just been thrown into the most notorious women's prison of them all, the House of Lost Souls located somewhere in a faraway corner of the jungle, where the inmates are beaten and whipped on a regular basis, also raped should need be, forced to work long hours, even killed on occasion with their bodies buried all over the place, and the warden (Odette Khan) is nothing short of a dangerous sadistic bitch. On top of that, the prettiest girls of the prison are also loaned out to the local brothel to work as whores - and Jennifer is rather pretty. However, when she refuses to take part in an upcoming orgy organized by the brothel's head pimp, the Gouvernor (Jim Gaines), he has another girl killed by inserting a snake into her vagina just to teach Jennifer a lesson.

The conditions in jail get more gruesome by the day though, so soon Jennifer and a few others start to make up escape plans, which Jennifer decides to put into action immediately after her best friend Monica (Dyane Craystan) is almost tortured to death. However, Jennifer's escape plan involves her and all her fellow escapees taking part in above mentioned orgy, so Jennifer first has to make up with the gouvernor again ...

The gouvernor is quick to see through Jennifer's motives, but he hires her and her friends for the orgy anyways - where they have sex with the gouvernors friends until they all pass out drunk. Then the girls take off through the jungle. However, the gouvernor has foreseen this and has made the girls the prey in an organized (wo)manhunt, in which his friends/clients are to hunt the girls down and then do with them whatever they want, and they are accompanied by a gang of natives - who do little though than the customary jungle drumming and making cartoon-noises (really).

One by one, the girls fall prey to the gouvernor's hunters, but Jennifer has quite a few tricks up her sleeve to not only survive but also improve the situation of the escapees, like getting them weapong and the like. Still, eventually, her group is down to herself and Monica, and though by now the two of them are armed, they know they won't stand much of a chance - so Monica tells Jennifer to make a run for it while she will fend off their pursuers - and she manages to kill the gouvernor and a few of his friends before being captured and dragged back to jail, where the warden wants to publicly hang her to set an example.

Just before the execution can be performed though, policecars arrive and the warden is arrested on the spot while a policewoman saves Monica from the galloows - and the policewoman turns out to be Jennifer, of course.


The Jail: A Women's Hell is a throwback to the many WIP (women in prison) movies from 20 to 30 years ago, movies full of sleaze and violence carried by often at best rudimentary storylines - and director Bruno Mattei has made quite a few of them back in the day, and if anything, this movie shows Mattei hasn't forgotten anything over the years. That said of course, The Jail: A Women's Hell is not exactly a genre classic, rather only more of the same put onto film in a functional and technically ok way, but without any imagination. At least though Yvette Yzon makes a pretty good lead.
