Director: Jess Franco, 1969

A new batch of detainees arrives at a remote women’s prison, amongst which is the beautiful Maria Rohm (Venus in Furs, Marquis de Sade’s Justine) and Bond girl Luciana Paluzzi (Thunderball). Here on the island, the inhabitants seem to be either sex-crazed female prisoners or sex-crazed female guards who also happen to be sadists! In turn, all the women must abide by the iron rule of the governor, played with steely gusto by Mercedes McCambridge (The Exorcist) who clashes with the newly arrived superintendent, Maria Schell (The Odessa File), whi disapproves of her brutal ways.

Steamy scenes with semi-naked women, and copious amounts of lesbian rape, torture and sex, make this a truly authentic look at life on the inside!

Shown here in a version remastered in HD from the original negatives.
