WOMEN IN HEAT BEHIND BARS REVIEWED
“Women in Heat Behind Bars” follows a jewelry store robbery accomplice after she’s thrown into Cell Block 21. She’s desperate to protect her maidenship, but the sex starved ladies want to pass her around. There’s even a mean prison matron that wants her turn on the new fish. Nikkatsu’s Women in Prison movies always felt way dirtier than anything Corman made in the Philippines. While the film only lasts an hour and nine minutes, it’s just a hair above outright pornography.
Who will enjoy this film? Do you like Asian girls fighting for their lives and staging prison riots? Then, this is the only film made for you. Japanese Erotic Cinema in the 1980s played like Red Shoe Diaries with a budget. It’s not a prison movie and it’s not quite soft enough for softcore. Yet, it exists. Enjoy!

The Plot Thus Far
The lovely Shinobu Himeno is arrested and thrown into Asahi Female Prison for being an unwilling accomplice in a jewelry store robbery. She’s to serve her sentence in the infamous Cell Block 21, a dismal area full of tough, sex-starved women. Himeno is bullied and abused by inmates and guards and, after being framed for starting a fight, is taken away and tied up by the prison’s infamous Mr. Kiya. Through flashbacks, we discover why many of the women have been locked up here and soon, in one great act of defiance, they rise up to overtake the prison in a bloody, violent riot! Can the shy Himeno ever escape this living hell?
Loaded with gratuitous nudity, sex, and violence, WOMEN IN HEAT BEHIND BARS is one of the best of the “Women in Prison” genre of Nikkatsu’s vast exploitation catalog.
