Editorial Reviews

When anti-social teens girls are busted for petty crimes, they're sent to the Bad Girls' Dormitory, a seedy correctional institute in New York City. Behind locked doors, all the girls claim innocence, but no one's buying it. Instead, they must endure abuse at the hands of the female warden, the sadistic doctor and anyone else with a craving for young female flesh. Before long, the girls can take it no longer, and plot to bust out of this prison hell.

This 80s women-in-prison relic from director Tim Kincaid (Breeders, Riot on 42nd Street) delivers the sleazy goods you've come to expect from the genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shocking December 30, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Shockingly little skin for a mid-80s WIP. Aside from one hanging, shockingly little violence. Lots of dark (i.e. what am I looking at?) scenes show they couldn't pay for a electrician on the set.

I honestly don't understand how anybody would make a women-in-prison film this uninteresting. It's obvious that the director and/or producer had no idea regarding the whole genre of captive women thrown together. There's two routes they could have gone, but they did neither:

1) The serious look at women behind bars. Unattractive women who are bored and occasionally fight or do drugs. Interesting only in a docu-drama sort of way, exposing our societal ills, blah, blah, blah...

2) The campy, tough-lezzies-preying-on-pretty-new-inmates approach. Pretty girls being used and abused by the bitchy female warden, her mean dykey female guards, and/or the tough lezzie inmates who possess a taste for pretty, young, female flesh. Always a popular WIP approach.

But "Bad Girls Dormitory" decided to go for an un-erotic, campy, let's-include-guys, no-girl-girl-action, yawn-fest-approach that included none of the above and earns this film a solid one-star. What a complete waste of an otherwise good female cast!

2.0 out of 5 stars W.I.P in N.Y August 4, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A WIP (Women in Prison) film set in New York in the mid-1980s, this film features all the 'big hair' of that era. This film is no different from as a dozen other WIP movies, such as "Red Heat " (with Linda Blair), only the location is different. The plots are all the same; a few backstories to show the brutal lives various women suffered before turning up in an even more brutal institution. Lots of sex with sadistic prison guards, and an eventual rescue.

This film features some of the same cast, and even the same locations as another film made by the same director Tim Kincaid, in the same year; Breeders... this gives you an idea of the budget - and it looks like a budget movie

3.0 out of 5 stars unique, actually gets better every time you see it July 29, 2009
Format:DVD
The first time I watched BAD GIRLS DORMITORY (upon its original release in an actual movie theater no less) I thought it was poorly made, poorly lit, and badly edited. The film was "discovered" by a cable TV series called USA UP ALL NIGHT, and the film became a late-night hit. I have watched it several times since then, and it actually does get better on subsequent viewings. Shot on 35mm in the mid-1980s for the exploitation market (there actually was a market for this), it was a NYC independent production with a very low budget. Three nice girls are set up (by men, of course) and land in a correctional facility. We know this because: a) the sign says so, and b) the building has barbed wire outside of it! The film seems to stop every ten minutes or so for an "action" sequence, which appear to be dropped into the film because someone told the filmmakers the genre needed them. No one told him they did not have to look so staged. The sleaze factor is evident from the beginning. A doctor puts on a plastic glove to form a cavity search (no, not a latex glove - that would have cost too much. It's the type of plastic glove food handlers are supposed to use), and when the girls bend over, he takes the glove off with a smile. What stands out upon repeated viewings is how good (among an oasis of bad) some of the performances are. Dan Barclay as Dr. DeMarco and Rebecca Rothbaum as Nurse Stevens stand out. Barclay is subtle (unusual for this genre), well spoken and realistic. It's astonishing this his is only credit listed on IMDB. With his handsome looks and good manner, he should have done much more work. Rothbaum is also someone who gives a good performance, and ditto when you look her up on IMDB. Rick Gianasi, the matinee idol lead, at least went on to do more work. Oh, and just try to get the song HOSE ME DOWN out of your head after you hear it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally vintage mid-'80s trash August 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ah, the mid-'80s. The big hair. The cheesy synthesizer music. The drugs. The babes. The sleaze. It's all here and much more in Tim Kincaid's trashy 1985 women in prison effort "Bad Girls Dormitory."

It all takes place at a New York City dormitory for erstwhile female juvenile offenders. Some are there for prostitution. Some for drug dealing. Some for manslaughter. A few, such as the main protagonist in the film, Lori (Carey Zuris), wouldn't be there had it not been for the manipulation and abuse by some very scummy male perpetrators. Once in, the good upright girls like her are at the mercy of a butchy queen bee antagonist named Lisa (Jennifer Delora) and her sidekick Rebel (Donna Eskra). Fights, even murders, ensue. And don't look to the facility's staff for any help. They're just as corrupt as everyone else.

"Bad Girls Dormitory" is trash, knows it's trash and even relishes in the fact, making for a delightfully fun viewing each and every time. And let's set the record straight here -- unlike what some have said, many of the girls in this movie are TOTALLY hot. Carey Zuris is drop dead gorgeous, in a mid-'80s kind of way, and really does have extremely "pretty eyes," to quote the film itself. And we get to see much more of her as well and some other of the young babes in any one of the several sultry shower scenes included here. I also think her initial performance as the shy, sensitive girl transplanted into a virtual hellhole is quite effective. There are also drugs, like one of the other girls, who has a habit of sneaking into the dormitory's basement after hours to smoke a late night joint. This makes her very vulnerable and disoriented, particularly when she is caught by and falls prey to a most unscrupulous male staff member.
