Viewing Notes

For a Ted V. Mikels joint I wasn’t expecting much from this and that’s a good thing. He basically mashes two exploitation subgenres into one film which takes the steam out of both halves. The first half is the all girl criminal gang while the second half has them fending for themselves in prison. The titillation of the women’s prison is half baked and never feels as grimy and sleazy as it should be. But it’s an okay attempt albeit unsuccessful.
