sorry for the mistakes
Bad Girls Dormitory
The first, unjustly arrested for prostitution, the other, framed for
drug dealing. The third stop for defending herself from attempted rape.
The premise of a classic WIP, that is, that the inmates are not (all)
bad, for a terribly absurd film by Tim Kincaid that has the virtue of
conveying the golden 80's. Stupid, vulgar and empty. But he does it
Tim Kincaid, who often signs himself Joe Cage, is a director, producer,
known for several b movies that have gone down in history such as
“Breeders”, “Robot Holocaust” and especially
for gay porn movies, a genre in which he made history. An eclectic man
I would say.
Here we find him in 1986, with a film that is clearly inspired by the Women In Prison, but changing something.
First of all, the three girls I wrote about at the beginning, played by
Natalie Savage (or O'Connell), Teresa Farley and Carey Zuris, do not
end up in a real prison but in the New York Female Juvenile
Reformatory, a reformatory where the "inmates" should be aged between
fourteen and twenty years approximately. Of course, the performers are
all older and always of course, they only wear a white tank top and
pants, so as to more easily show what's underneath. Their favourite
activity in there is showering which the local guards watch without
But this is nothing. Because in this place led by Miss Maddison
(Marita), a somewhat dull warden, everything happens. More than usual.
Yes, the guards have sex with the prisoners, they bother them, they
even have a party with their boyfriends in prison (?), But inside
there, doctors and nurses do morphine without a tomorrow and the
prisoners commit suicide, for depression.
All this before the classic rebellion.
A film without a precise meaning, that is, with things and situations
put at random. A bad acting (the actresses are beautiful anyway) and a
direction that doesn't quite know what to do. But in this chaos, of
drugs, fornication, absence of bras and beating, I feel like saying
that Kincaid achieves its goal. In the sense that he creates a b movie
that he lets himself be followed thanks to the classic curiosity of
wanting to understand where he is headed. A nice trashy chapter.
