Alternate Versions

The film was cut by the Ontario Censor Board for its video release in the province in 1986. The board made nine cuts including "establish scene, long shot of woman standing, but eliminate all scenes of slapping and whipping; establish scene of woman in bed (smoking with guard approaching), but eliminate all scenes of sexual attack including the violence; shorten scene of drugs forcibly given, establish woman rubbing woman's arm to give needle, but cut all other scenes of actual drug injects; establish scene of woman at point when she's punched, but eliminate the scenes where the glass is pushed into mouth and re-establish where woman is in distant shot on floor." The sequence where Rita stabs Michelle in the hand is also shortened. See more »

Attica ! Attica ! Attica !
9 August 2012 | by djderkaSee all my reviews

A leggy sexy girl (Rita) in short shorts and cowboy boots somehow manages to hitch a ride from some dude driving a stolen red Corvette. They team up in a robbery/shooting and drag the dude's girlfriend (Michelle)into the fracas and she is convicted of armed robbery and is to serve 3 years.

Thrown into an all female prison, Michelle tries to cope with the the requisite evil warden, personal conflicts, bad guards, bad prisoners, but hey it IS prison.

Actually this film has a lot of social justice between the nude prisoners running around and kissing and making out. The blacks are segregated but Michelle bridges the divide and teams up with them to ferment a full fledged Attica style riot.

The big tough gal, Faith Minton, a centerpiece in the population, is tough enough to serve in a men's prison, where she would get respect.

Lots goes on in this above average prison flick, and it kinda reminds me of a female version of Brubaker. If you see it for $5, buy it or rent it for a fun evening of chic on chic action with some social justice thrown in.

Sadly the movie did not provide IMDb with practicals, i.e. photos of all cast members and bios. So faces are blank, making it hard to identify the actors.

Moral: avoid going to prison at all costs. Be a good citizen. Well, even that might not help you if you are framed.
