Shot back-to-back with Emanuelle in Prison, Violence in a Woman's Prison is plotwise more of a straight women-in-prison melodrama in the lines of The Concrete Jungle and such. Laura Gemser plays yet another Emanuelle, a reporter who goes to prison on trumped up charges to expose the corruption within the prison and to secure a scoop about the bad conditions run by sadistic warden Lorraine De Selle. She is exposed, locked up in a cell together with hundreds of hungry dirty rats and eventually manages to escape with nice doctor Gabriele Tinti. In the prison she sees all of the torture and sex that the female inmates are exposed too. Extremely kinky as expected with Mattei (credited as his usual "Vincent Dawn") managing to stage a somewhat bizarre art rape-scene which looks like something from a Tinto Brass movie, where the warden and her lover gets horny while watching a girl being raped and beaten up by male inmates (oh yes, there are male inmates here too!). Lorraine De Selle is great as the evil warden and there's another loud great soundtrack by Luigi Ceccarellli. A fabulous WIP prison from one of Italy's sleaze masters, Mattei.
