Movie Info

Reform School Girls presents a predictable look at the evils to be found in a women's reform school (read: PRISON). A young girl gets involved in a stick-up and is sent to reform school where she encounters a sadistic lesbian inmate, a lesbian warden, mean guards, et al. Included here, are some gratuitous nudity shots that apparently the directory couldn't resist staging.more

This is the next best thing to "Faster Pussycat, Kill!... Kill!"

A great idea for a trailer or a poster, but not for a feature-length film.

Audience Reviews for Reform School Girls


"Don't just stand there, bring me something to wipe my shoe."

I has never seen a "women in cages" movie prior to seeing this, so I really had no idea what to expect. Which is good, because no expectations could have prepared me for this, anyway. Reform School Girls is lurid, sordid, exploitative, pure cheese, and yes, even entertaining. If you can handle the absurdity of it all, anyway.

The plot is paper thin (Othello, this is not). A young woman gets sent to a reform school/youth prison after a botched bank robbery, and tangles with the corrupt warden and head matron, as well as a gang of vicious girls. That's basically it. And there's lots of underwear.

Basically, you probably already know if you like these kinds of movies, or you're a newbie like me. If you're unfamiliar with the genre, aren't easily offended, and have a fondness for campy/tongue-in-cheek absurdity, I suggest you try this out for the sheer novelty of it. I'll be seeing a few more, just to see if they can possibly get even more over-the-top than Reform School Girls.

All someone could hope for in a film of this title...
and I mean that in the best way possible.

This is a bad movie. It's supposed to be a spoof of Women in Prison movies but it's not funny. In the real world no one would allow a girls reformatory to get this out of control. It's got lots of nude women. I ordered the DVD because it starred Sybil Danning but she was only in a few scenes and they had her in a neo-Nazi type uniform that covered her from the neck down. Why would you have an actress known for her Playboy spreads and not show any skin? They had Wendy O. Williams in a leather bra and bikini in the whole movie. She's about the scariest looking chick I've ever seen. The hair styles were all big hair 1980's or punk rock 1970's. Someone needs to nominate this movie for the worst movies of all time lists.
