Either the prints used for this DVD release were in exceptional condition to begin with or Panik House Entertainment spent some major time, effort and money on remastering them for this release. All three films look and sound amazing, better than any previous versions I've seen and heard before. The first film in this two disc set "Chained Heat" found on disc one is considered the greatest women-in-prison film of all time. It's finally being presented totally uncut and the anamorphic widescreen print used for this newly re-mastered version is absolutely pristine.
The prints used for "Red Heat" and "Jungle Warriors" found on the second disc are equally as impressive. I expected the prints for these three films would be riddled with lines, debris, speckling and really grainy but there definitely not. Fans of these three films will be blown away with the picture and sound quality from Panik House. None of these films will ever win an Oscar for best picture but they will definitely entertain you with the hilarious dialogue and plenty of gratuitous frontal nudity. Did I say plenty of Nudity!
CHAINED HEAT - Carol Henderson (Linda Blair) has been sentenced to 18 months in federal prison after accidentally killing a man. Keeping an eye on Carol while she's in the slammer will be the perverted Warden Bacman (John Vernon) who shoots private sex films starring the inmates.Read more ›
Chained Heat: An innocent young woman winds up in the slammer. It's a bad place.
Women In Prison films run the gambit from artsy exploitation to sadistic crap. The genre was popularized by Jack Hill (Big Doll House) and became a staple of low budget exploitation features worldwide. The top three WIP films, in this reviewer's opinion, are #1) Female Prisoner #701 Scorpion, #2) Bamboo House Of Dolls, and #3) Chained Heat.
Chained Heat wins few points for quality dramatics or biting social commentary, but seldom has such overt sleaze been presented in such an accomplished and enthusiastic presentation. It boasts one of the finest scripts of any WIP feature and an all-star cast of exploitation veterans. It takes the basic elements of the genre and adds suspense, dark humor, and gore to the standard mix of corruption, sex, drugs, shower scenes, rape, and lesbian assault. But most of all, this is a successful dark comedy with a witty script, (mostly) great performances, fast pacing, atmospheric sets, and sleaze galore. Yes, it is over-the-top but still retains it's footing in the [alternate] universe presented. If you're thinking this is in the same league as campy and shoddy eighties product like Reform School Girls, guess again.
Linda Blair was duped into appearing as the protagonist and still maintains that it ruined her career. Perhaps her disdain for the project is what makes her the weak link as she whines her way throughout. It's a tossup over who chews the scenery with wilder abandon, John Vernon or Stella Stevens, and they're given solid support by Sybil Danning and Henry Silva.Read more ›
