Worst Cover Copy
Warning: This Cover Has Been Modified from the Film's Original Version
The text of the cover is as follows:


"The inmates of a woman's prison suffer cruel and unspeakable tortures from their jailer and each other."

They're in prison for about five minutes of the movie.

"Five angry women plan a daring escape to free themselves from the violent monstrosities which is ... PRISON."

Either "violent monstrosity which is" or "violent monstrosities which are" -- pick one -- and there isn't any planning in this film, they just break out, and that happens before the 10 minute mark.

"These women take it on the lam in search of help to make their escape complete, getting no help from family members, they resort to taking a hostage to get them across the border for their freedom."

Nicely encapsulating the middle hour of the movie in a run-on sentence.

"Their escape heightens to a bloody battle between civilized law and the convict's law."

Um ... no it doesn't. One escapes. One dies. Movie's over.


No, in fact the women in the film are actually somewhat more attractive than the women on the box.

"Box Design (c) 1988 by Tapeworm Productions"

Tapeworm? That explains it.
