Aro Recommended Big Doll House, The


USA 1971, 90 minutes
Dir. Jack Hill
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Cult / Blaxploitation, Girl-centric, Sexploitation, Prison


Aroview: This salacious yet good-natured women-in-prison picture set in a steamy jungle penal colony exploited its premise well, made a bunch of money, and revived the genre in the 1970s.

Established archetypes of the genre - the queen bee, the new fish, the hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold, the sadistic warden, the dyke guard - engage variously in the gamut of unladylike behaviour (mud-fights, food-fights, gun-fights, lesbianism, torture, even reverse-rape), all courtesy of short-attention-span producer, Roger Corman.
