DVD review: Werewolf in a Women's Prison (2006)
Sarah (Victoria De Mare) is out camping with her boyfriend when they are attacked by a werewolf. Afterwards she wakes up in a prison only to find out her boyfriend has been killed and she has been bitten (we all knows what that means) and she is the only suspect. With the combination women´s prison and werewolf you can´t go wrong? Think again....
Werewolf in a Women's Prison looks and feels chep with badly made scenery and a limited amount of extras, there seems to be hardly any prisoners in the prison... As expected the acting isn´t very good and some of it is downright bad. There is some intended comedy and some unintentional…
The special fx is a mix of both practical and cgi, there are some good gore fx as the werewolf goes on a killing spree and the fun begins (the real fun begins around the 35 minutes into the movie).
Werewolf in a Women's Prison tries to be sleazy and there is a lot of nudity on display but it´s all softcore and no full frontal nudity (yes it´s a movie where people have their panties on during sex), it´s all very tame and borderline ridiculous especially compared to other films such as K3: Prison of Hell..
Rating: 2½ out of 7. It certainly isn´t a very good film but it has entertainment value and gives a original spin on the WIP and werewolf genres. Now if you want to see a real sleazy women in prison flick I recommend Andreas Bethmann´s K3: Prison of Hell which is both nasty and mean - spirited.
