Movie Info

A softcore, low-budget film with no pretentions to a viable plot or character development, Reform School Girls just proceeds along the foul-mouthed, suggestive lines of its genre without anything new to add. Charlie (Wendy O. Williams, who committed suicide in April of 1998, at the age of 48) runs a reform school along with fat Edna (Pat Ast) and the tough warden Sutter (Sybil Danning) whose quotes from the Bible have little effect on her co-workers. As new inmates are intimidated into sexual acts and everybody generally wanders around in as little as possible, it does not take a genius to figure out that sex is the main protagonist in this blue film.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

[VIDEO ESSAY] Although critically scorned and criminally overlooked, co-writer/director Tom Desimone's punk rock-inspired indie sexploitation flick has it all.

Audience Reviews for Reform School Girls

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.

I liked this movie because I am a huge fan of Wendy O. Williams. She a shock princess and I just love her.

"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.
