Editorial Reviews

A new warden arrives on Devil's Island to take over the women's prison at the infamous French penal colony. Surrounded by alligator-infested waters and mistreated by wardens, the women spend their days being forced to collect gold. But while the new reforms are being poorly-received by the old-school guards accustomed to having their way with the female prisoners, all is not as it seems, for a clever gold thief resides in their midst. Guy Madison stars in this Italian-made cult/costume favorite, which also remains one of the earliest entries to the genre of women-in-prison movies.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Format: VHS Tape
"Women of Devil's Island" is a turgid and trashy, dull and dubbed Euro-drama from 1962 about French women in enormous dresses imprisoned on Devil's Island and their cunning plans to escape. The Lieutenant in charge of the installation is a hedonistic sadist who whips the women and makes them pan for gold in an alligator-infested swamp. Periodically a woman gets eaten, but most of the swamp time revolves around singing in French until the audience begins to go insane.

Eventually a Captain comes to take command of the installation: he is handsome and humane, and the girls adore him, particularly Martine, whose sister the Lieutenant killed in cold blood. The tensions obviously revolve on two axes: the Captain versus the Lieutenant, and the women's plots to escape. Due to a traitor in their midst, the girls' plans are foiled, the new Captain turns out to be an idealistic pirate of sorts, and the gold is all stolen. Oh, and the Captain gets to wrestle an alligator.

The remainder of the film is one implausible misadventure after another, culminating in a huge, though laughably fake, firefight, and a rescue for all the good guys by the pirate ship. We discover that the pirates need the gold to fund the revolution, as they only care about equality, freedom, and justice.

The whole film is pretty smarmy, and very bland. The dubbing is poor (it was originally in Italian except for the singing, which was in French, apparently), the acting is very wooden, and there is constant swelling orchestral music. The print is absolutely wretched with enormous flaws, splices, tears, and incorrect positioning in the vertical plane onscreen.

There is no Color as such,everything is pink, NO CREDITS on the beginning at all. the film just starts.

The first 21 minutes as a portion of the screen blacked out at the top of the picture.
Full Screen Pan & Scan , soft focus.,nothing to recommend it

The film itself, is quite good,women prisoners on Devils Island ,being treated badly by the guards.

Buy it by all means, but beware the condition of the print.
