Pridemoore: Directed by Tom DeSimone. With Linda Carol, Wendy O. Williams, Pat Ast, Sybil Danning. They’re sexy, they’re beautiful, and they’re bad. Bad enough to be locked up in Pridemore Juvenile Facility, where there are no windows, no possibility of escape, and no hope.

“Set in a correctional facility for young female offenders, Reform School Girls is technically a Women in Prison movie, but donu0026#39;t expect anything too sleazy ala the films of Jess Franco—as far as the genre goes, this mid 80s effort from seasoned trash director Tom DeSimone is one of the lighter examples, designed to be fun rather than offensive.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile it does deliver most of the standard WIP ingredients—cat-fights, communal shower scenes, bull dykes, fragile first-timers, and physical abuse—itu0026#39;s all done in knowingly camp fashion with tongue firmly in cheek. The big-breasted women saunter round their dorm in sexy lingerie, the nastier inmates and members of staff are grotesque caricatures, the dialogue is deliberately tasteless (u0026#39;I thought I smelled fishu0026#39;), and the plot is about as cheesy as it could get.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLetu0026#39;s face it, any film which sees a scantily clad Wendy O. Williams, lead singer of punk/rock group The Plasmatics, stood atop a speeding bus on a collision course with a sadistic, overweight, shotgun toting head matron called Edna (a memorable performance from Pat Ast) was never intended to be taken all that seriously.”
