Shot back to back with Emanuelle in Prison (aka Blade Violent, Woman's Prison Massacre) VIAWP is fun addition to the WIP genre full of cat fights, unappealing lesbian sex, Lorraine De Selle in stockings, death by spoon, a comic relief gay male prisoner who gets jealous after the men start eying up the women and ends up beaten to death after saying they will get no more 'love'from him. And in the most ludicrous scene a woman being killed after rolling down a hill!!! Bruno Mattei will never be considered a great director but with films like this, Rats and Zombie Creeping Flesh he will forever hold a special place in the hearts of cult movie fans.

Vipco's UNCUT UK R2 DVD is presented in a non-anamorphic 1.85:1 transfer, that is nice for the most part but in certain exterior shots the sky is yellow. The only extras are the usual trailers, filmography and picture gallery.
There is also a R1 edition from Shriek Show which is presented in 16x9 and includes an interview with Bruno Mattei (in italian with english subs), an English language R2 DVD from Scaninavian company Another World which is also presneted in 16x9 and includes a booklet (trust your Danish is up to par!) and a 16x9 German dvd from X-Rated Kult that comes in one of those collectable 'Hardboxes' and is available with 3 different covers.

4.0 out of 5 stars sadistic, twisted, and disturbing 9 Feb 2003
By Jerry McDaniel - Published on
Verified Purchase
this latest Laura Gemser soft-core flick has all the elements of her previous films. there's nudity, violence, lesbianism, teasing, and so much bizarre situations and plot twists it would make the average viewer somewhat dizzy. in this film, we see Gemser playing a reporter who poses as a prostitute in order to get put in prison and experience all the rumors about violence and amoral prison guards. once put in prison, Gemser has one confrontation after another. the warden and her underlings get their kicks watching women get beat up with billy clubs and there's one scene in the film where just the sounds of two women having sex prompt two female cell-mates to give in to their desires. the overall plot is borderline soap opera with the emphasis on over-emotional turmoil and writhing bodies. there's only two scenes in the film that would qualify as a "sex scene", all other segments are nudity and teasers. however, there is a doctor who at first comes across as just another sleazeball but he turns out to be a normal guy locked up for killing his wife (her wish) but his knowledge of medicine is how he was appointed the prison's doctor. after his second appearance, we start to see that he's going to help Gemser escape the prison dead or alive. this is a great "atmosphere" film and one that will haunt you for weeks and months because the violence is so horrific. the film lacks character development for the authority figures, who appear in this film as nothing more than sadistic, twisted rapists. maybe that was the goal? maybe the film was designed to expose the hypocrisy of prison guards and how the guards act all self-righteous but as soon as the lights go out they're just as despicible as the criminals? whatever the case, i gave it 4 stars for the simple fact of the guard's and warden's lack of humanity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stupid plot, but what women-in-prison flick has a good plot? 20 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
No, these exploitation films require only that we see at least one sexy babe being molested by the evil female warden, maybe a couple of other beautiful women making out with eachother in their cell, and at least one steamy shower scene with several naked girls together. In this regard, "Caged Women" delivers.

3.0 out of 5 stars interest for some 4 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Caged woman is better that women prison massacre. Unfortunately I think the director thought he was making a serious film. There is a lot of dialogue between the ... scenes. Emmanuelle however does get naked when she is molested by the general. on the whole watchable but not a classic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Women in Prison sleaze Italian style 6 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
This Joe d'Amato film takes the Women in Prison genre one step deeper into the abyss of sleaze, bordering on pornography. The plot, or lack thereof, is typical: woman goes into jail undercover to unearth the guards corruption. To make the film last 80 minutes, Joe d'Amato fills the story with lesbianism, vile tortures, naked women in rat infested sewers, and plenty of gratuitous sex. I gave this movie 1 star because there is no option for a 0 star rating. Even hardcore fans of Euro sex queen Laura Gemser will find this one a total bore.
