“Violence in a Women’s Prison” is an Emanuelle movie. That’s Emanuelle with one M, as the real franchise sported two Ms as copyright law didn’t really exist in international 70s cinema. While Laura Gemser continues her turn as Emanuelle, the film is a hot mess. First off, it’s a male prison and not a women’s prison. Second, this is about the 5th uber erotic women in prison movie I’ve had to watch in the last two weeks. Finally, there is lesbian sex scenes, but it’s shot with the passion of an Ilsa movie.

Bruno Mattei handles this outing, but he does it in a way that plays to his strengths. Feces and rat attacks come up as micro set pieces that redefine what it means to make erotic cinema. Mattei makes the environment a filthy character trying to rub its hands all over Laura Gemser. Still, Gemser survives and makes her way deeper into the erotic filth revelry. Modern audiences will find themselves disgusted to the point that they return to the safe teat of Netflix.

That’s good. We don’t need you here in the depths of movies like this.

The Plot Thus Far

In an over-the-top career filled with cannibals, zombies, nuns and Nazis, only EuroSleaze maestro Bruno Mattei (THE OTHER HELL, SHOCKING DARK) – along with frequent collaborators/co-writers Claudio Fragasso and Rossella Drudi (TROLL 2, ZOMBIE 3 and 4) – could take the BLACK EMANUELLE series to such insane depths of depravity: When Emanuelle (the legendary Laura Gemser) goes undercover in a penitentiary, she will endure a nightmare of sadistic guards, voracious lesbians, rat attacks, feces fights and enough graphic mayhem for a dozen women-in-prison trash epics. Gabriele Tinti (EMANUELLE AND THE LAST CANNIBALS), Lorraine De Selle (CANNIBAL FEROX) and Franca Stoppi (BEYOND THE DARKNESS) co-star in this “classic of exploitation” (Yell Magazine) – also known as CAGED WOMEN and EMANUELLE IN PRISON – now featuring a 2k scan from an uncensored inter-positive.
