Rape Squad - Click to View Larger Rape Squad - Click to View LargerThe Rape Squad AKA Act of Vengeance (1974) - Linda gets raped by a man in a hockey mask. She finds that a few other women have had the same treatment. Together they form a squad that starts looking for the man and also changes the mind of would-be rapists.

Just watched this movie on Netflix this afternoon. The movie definitely sends mixed messages. The movie was written by a woman, but directed by a man. The girls join together to form a squad to avenge the rapes of themselves and other women, but they make their organizational plans while they all float nude in a hot tub. During the rape scenes, the camera concentrates almost lovingly on the nudity of the rape victim. See what I mean about mixed messages?

There are some good scenes, such as where the "Rape Squad" all pile out of a VW Microbus and beat the shit out of a pimp who's hasseling one of his "ladies". They also trash his car and leave him laying on the hood.

All in all, if you have Netflix, it's not a horrible way to spend an hour and a half, but I wouldn't buy it on DVD.

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...The Big Bird Cage (1972) - A 1972 exploitation film of the "women in prison" subgenre. It serves as a non-sequel follow-up to the 1971 film The Big Doll House. The film was written and directed by Jack Hill, and stars Pam Grier, Sid Haig, Anitra Ford, and Carol Speed.

A buxom bad girl named Blossom (Pam Grier) is the rough-and-ready girlfriend of a radical guerrilla leader named Django (Sid Haig). But when Django's mercenary friends itch for some female companionship, they devise a plan to liberate the inmates of a local women's prison. With the help of another new inmate (Anitra Ford), Blossom and Django go up against a tyrannical warden (Andrés Centenera) to stage an explosive breakout.

This is a great selection from the Women in Prison sexploitation genre. Produced by the master, Roger Corman, the film actually will hold your attention, even when there isn't female flesh on screen.

Video after the jump!

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...The Ransom (1977) - (AKA "Maniac... A Killer!) A Native American travels around a resort town, murdering cops and rich people with a high-powered crossbow, while demanding that the town's richest residents pay him money to stop the killings.

Yup, that's the description on IMDB. Even though if you click the poster at the right and enlarge it, you'll see the killer using a handgun. Details, details...

That girl really looks like she's all of a sudden remembered an important appointment she has to get to, doesn't she? And what the fuck is up with the clown mask? A Native American clown killer? Was his Native American name "Floppy Bloody Shoes"?

By a stroke of luck(?) we found the full movie on YouTube. It's your call whether to watch it or not. As for me, I'm running WAY to low on my Crown Royal supply to attempt someting that fool-hearty!

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...Caged Heat (alternate title: Renegade Girls) is an exploitation film from 1974 of the "women-in-prison" film genre. It was written and directed by Jonathan Demme for New World Pictures, headed by Roger Corman. The film stars Erica Gavin, Roberta Collins, Juanita Brown, Rainbeaux Smith, future porn star Desiree Cousteau and Barbara Steele.

Caged Heat centers on the story of Jacqueline Wilson (Erica Gavin). Wilson is sentenced to a women's prison after her conviction on illegal drug offenses. Wilson, naturally, becomes associated with a group of fellow female convicts, and they fight against the repressive policies of the prison's warden (Barbara Steele).

Caged Heat was Jonathan Demme's debut as a movie director. Producer Roger Corman thought that the content of his company's previous "women in prison" films was inadequate, so he instructed Demme to create a screenplay that would bring something novel to this genre. However, Corman also wanted Caged Heat to retain most of the violence and nudity that audiences for this genre had come to expect.

The trailer is available after the jump.
