Editorial Reviews

"Elizabeth Demming (Tracy Bregman) has been set up by her boyfriend Danny (Peter Brown). Unaware that Danny had stashed cocaine in her luggage, Elizabeth is arrested at the airport when she returns from their romantic holiday. She is tried and sentenced to a woman's correctional institution. Inside, prison life is filled with lesbianism, rape, drugs and violence. Inevitably, Elizabeth has a run in with Cat (Barbara Luna), who runs drugs and contraband for the corrupt Warden Fletcher (Jill St. John). Cat takes an immediate liking to Elizabeth. But, Elizabeth spurns Cat's affections and becomes her enemy. When her close friend is given an overdose by Cat, Elizabeth has had enough. She goes after Cat, and their fight builds to an electrifying conclusion.

Format: DVD
Women's prison films have always had an appreciative audience. Perhaps the first noteworthy one was "Caged" which starred Eleanor Parker. Released in 1950, it garnered good reviews and great box office. It also led to numerous inferior imitations, such as "Women's Prison" (1955) which at least featured a scenery-chewing performance from Ida Lupino as the wicked warden--(a role she would repeat, more or less, in the 1972 TV movie "Women In Chains".) There was also 1962's "House Of Women" which starred Shirley Knight. The seventies ushered in such examples as the Roger Corman/New World productions of "Women in Cages" and "The Big Doll House". Then came Jonathan Demme's take on the subject "Caged Heat", after which the genre was pretty much left to porno producers. But in 1982, one of the best films on the subject was released. "The Concrete Jungle" was produced on a low budget and a quick shooting schedule (but, then, weren't most films in this genre?) and managed to deliver a gritty and tense story of one relatively innocent girl's battle to survive a hellish female penitentiary.

When her slimy boyfriend Danny (Peter Brown) uses his unsuspecting girlfriend Elizabeth (Tracy Bregman) to carry a stash of cocaine in her skis, she is nabbed by airport security. After a speedy trial, she is sent to the Correctional Institution for Women in California. There she learns quickly that she must toughen up if she hopes to leave there in one piece. She also eventually finds that the warden (Jill St John) is not only cruel and unsympathetic, but in cahoots with an inmate Cat (Barbara Luna) the prison's Queen Bee, who is her partner in a prison drug and prostitution racket. When Elizabeth witnesses a murder committed by Cat and her henchwomen, she spurns her attentions and becomes her enemy.

I bought this Version from the UK. Rated R. It plays fine on my Multi-Region Player. The colour is good. However, the UK Censors have butchered this movie Version totally wrecking the movie! Bastards! A different version more graphic was originally shown on VHS in my country Australia. I expected that Version but got a heavily censored pathetic version from the UK. I will never buy a DVD from the UK ever again! What a con job! The Australian Version I originally saw was excellent!

Had a decent plot to it and I've seen worse, but when you think of a "Women In Prison" flick this film sure lacked on the "girl on girl action" and other good stuff that one would normally expect. Save your money for something better.
