Scorpion 2 (1998) aka Sasori: Korosu tenshi

51YCPQCDT0LNami Matsushima has escaped from the prison to which she was sentenced in Scorpion, but is now obsessed with tracking down the–don’t laugh–one-armed man who murdered her younger sister fifteen years ago. Nami is certainly no great action heroine, and the plot at times makes little sense, climaxing with a coincidence more ridiculous than any Shakespeare ever used. For complicated reasons, Nami uses her medical knowledge to break into a women’s prison as staff physician. There, as in the previous movie, the convicts wind up naked awfully frequently.

Female Market (1986) aka Ryôjoku mesu ichiba – Kankin

femarkJapanese Yasuaki Uegaki’s film, Female Market: Imprisonment (1986) is one incredibly harrowing, brutal and strong rape related film that won’t leave even the most jaded exploitation enthusiasts alone. The film tells the inhuman story of a bunch of young Japanese females who one night get kidnapped and taken to some abandoned looking factory area to be abused by some drug dealers and human slavery bosses. It is soon revealed that none of the girls have too many close relatives so they won’t be searched after their disappearance. This all may sound like a plot from some Jess Franco women in prison flick, but it is more. This is Japanese exploitation which means only one thing: extreme.

The Death Prison (2011) aka デッド プリズン 女囚狩り

jacket_h_lAn island of legal lawlessness and murder that is not.. In 202X, capital punishment is abolished in a ferment of humanitarian reform.

For murderers in particular, their new sentences are implemented on an inescapable, isolated island where a former idol, Akane Kakizaki, has been incarcerated. Due to temporary memory loss, she doesn’t know why she’s there, but her punishment only just starts when she begins to be attacked by the now-“legal” murderers.

Women in Heat Behind Bars (1987) aka Ori no naka no hoshigaru onnatachi

Women in Heat Behind Bars (1987)Women in Heat Behind Bars (1987) aka Ori no naka no hoshigaru onnatachi from director of Onna Kyoshi Gari. Sadistic women in prison smut from the ever-reliable Japanese. Uses the standard framing device of having various characters pondering the events leading up to their incarceration, more often than not while another inmate’s face is buried between their legs. Highlights(?) include an assembly line cavity search, the old human toilet trick and, well, call us crude (won’t be the first time) but any movie that opens on a close up of a woman vigorously pawing at her oily twat has got our attention!

Decapitation Island (1970) aka Onna-ro hizu | おんな牢秘図

Womens-Prison-Torture_a

Exiled women are kept on an island that is overseen by a group of guards who pretty much leave the women alone as long as they don’t start actin’ up. If they do, they may be treated to some steam-room or hot-oil torture. Of course there are also ranks within the female prisoner populace, and hard-ass new-arrivals cause some dissension amongst the “leaders”. Eventually the new girls earn some respect but matters are complicated further by the arrival of a new guard – the disgraced son of an Official who was deemed incapable of performing his regular duties, and also by the out-break of the Plague that threatens to decimate the islands small population – resulting in feverish back-stabbing and escape attempts…
