Critic Reviews for Caged Heat (Caged Females) (Renegade Girls)
Jonathan Demme's debut film is campy, choppy, and generally immature, though his bonding themes are fitfully discernible amid the cartoonish action.
It's no more than passable as a thriller, but the density of invention and energy in other respects is enough to shame a dozen contemporary major studio movies.
...an exploitation film of the women's prison variety that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Contains a skits-within-the-movie sequence that comments on the narrative while also exposing the artificiality, absudity and performance aspect of the 'Women in Prison' trend itself.
An exciting film, and one that proves that even the most exploitative of films can make a relevant statement.
Audience Reviews for Caged Heat (Caged Females) (Renegade Girls)
Great dark, fun popcorn movie. Perfect for anyone who loves, or likes, exploitation films and dark quirky characters.
Your eyes do not deceive you - that is THE Jonathan Demme with the director's credit for this Roger Corman exploitation and one of the most influential of the WIP (women in prison) subgenre. And you know what, it ain't half bad! Don't get me wrong, nobody would mistake this for high quality cinema, but what it does it does well. Lead actress Erica Gavin as the new jailbait is plain and frankly rather boring, but thankfully the supporting characters have a lot of life like cutie Roberta Collins who steals food out of the employee break room to feed those in solitary and Juanita Brown as the fiery & foul-mouthed ruler of the cell block. Barbara Steele is really great as the wheelchair-bound superintendent McQueen who lives a repressed lifestyle and feels torn between her genuine desire to rehabilitate her charges and punish them for insubordination which she takes as a personal affront. There are four, count 'em, FOUR shower scenes mixed in among the catfights, corrective discipline, and rebellions leading up to the big showdown. Dust off your 8-track and pull out your polyester and bell-bottoms!
One of the Women In Prison films to end all WiP films, this one is well worth tracking down and something that I'm very happy to have marked off the To-Watch Pile. One of Corman's more iconic releases, and written and directed by Oscar-winner Jonathan Demme, this one is also worth your time to see what a much lauded director did in the early days of his career. Give it a rental.
