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
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!
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.Read more ›
