In 'The Exorcist,' little Linda Blair spun her head around. 'Chained Heat' gives her a chance to turn other people's heads, with topless scenes that announce the former child star is now an adult actress, with new rotundities to match her chipmunk cheeks.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

It has everything the genre needs, in addition to a pretty great cast.

Combustible Celluloid

A very dry comedy, essayed in the style of Jack Hill, or possibly Verhoeven

Audience Reviews for Chained Heat


One of the more popular WIP titles and lives up to the reputation. Babyfaced Exorcist star Linda Blair bares her pendulous papayas in prison, is accosted by lezzie inmate Sybil Danning, John Vernon hams it up as the degenerate, corrupt warden, while the gorgeous Monique Gabrielle trades her sugar for smack. What more could you want in a 1983 exploitation flick?

I love the WIP genre, and this is the best example. The Big Doll House is great, Caged Heat is a classic, and I really liked the excesses of Sadomania and Ilsa: the Wicked Warden, but Chained Heat is just sublime. Linda Blair, Sybil Danning, Stella Stevens, Tamara Dobson aka Cleopatra Jones, Monique Gabrielle...there's more scenery chewing, beautiful T & A, gore, and just general badassery per minute than any of the previous examples. There's also sleaze, drug use, sadism, and a knife fight between Danning and Dobson: this last is a showdown between the toughest white and black woman in the joint, so it's a good one. John Vernon (the dean from Animal House) is the warden who dishes out powdered dope treats in exchange for hot tub sex. It's as if the director, writer, and actors said, "Let's give the drive-in audience exactly what they paid for, and just deliver a hot, sleazy, kick ass, fun movie!" Anyone who thinks most movies today are entertaining should 1) have their head examined, then 2) watch this and realize that most movies are about as fun as watching a less-involving-than-average video game. 46% liking this one on Flixster makes me realize that I'm probably wasting my time here, if you like exploitation movies, you're OK - if you're not go join the other 54% watching American Idol you lame f**k.
