Synopsis:
Feature is "Jailhouse Rock" for the stay-at-home generation: an amphetamine-fueled descent into the humid cells of a women's lock-up. High-pulse nymphomania, bone-shattering violence, and a gruesomely gynaecological approach to torture rear their collective head in the workyard, in the cafeteria,...and in the showers of this messed-up big-house - more akin to a hen-house where all types of filthy birds come to roost. Take Meiko Kaji for instance - she's serving time as a result of circumstances that went a little, well...beyond her control. But whether she's tied down or chained up, Kaji (a.k.a.
Nami "Matsu the Scorpion" Matsushima) knows how to channel her sense of vengeance into that delta-sized libidinal urge known by any prison-vixen of the sensational 70s - and thereby makes the most of her incarceration.
