Women in Cages Collection / Women in Prison Triple Feature

Six times the exploitation!


Rod Lott
How many women-in-prison movies are too many? I don't know; I haven't reached that number yet, even after marathoning through two separate three-films-on-two-discs collections: Shout! Factory's "Women in Cages Collection" and Synapse's "Women in Prison Triple Feature."

Bar none

The ‘Cages’ collection busts onto Blu-ray!

One month ago, I reviewed six films that fall into the grindhouse genre known simply as “women in prison.” Three flicks apiece were part of two new DVD collections: Shout! Factory's "Women in Cages Collection" and Synapse's "Women in Prison Triple Feature.” At the time, picking which was better was like picking your favorite child.

But now I’m going with the former because on Aug. 23, Shout! Factory will release the same set on the glorious, ever-so-pristine format of Blu-ray. This means that Pam Grier’s br -- well, you get where I’m going with that. It must be what God intended when he created high-definition.

For those not attuned to the saucy, sassy style of producer Roger Corman’s wildly successful WIP efforts, Shout! Factory gives you these three safe-for-work clips. Watch. Then buy. —Rod Lott

Sword and Sorcery Collection

Four ’80s flicks for your pecs-and-sex viewing pleasure.


Rod Lott
I wasn’t sure Shout! Factory was going to be able to top this summer’s release of “The Women in Cages Collection” in its line of “Roger Corman’s Cult Classics.” But it’s done just that with “Sword and Sorcery Collection,” rounding up four flicks for your pecs-and-sex viewing pleasure.

Lethal Ladies 2 Collection

Swords, stewardesses, sex — success!

The low-grossing horror film provides plenty of gross highlights for fans.


Rod Lott
Creature has attracted a fair amount of attention of late, but for all the wrong reasons, as it reportedly earned the lowest first-weekend gross of any wide-release theatrical film in history. The horror movie’s crime isn't incompetence (à la Birdemic), but underexposure to the point of nonexposure.

Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel

Roger that!


Rod Lott
Corman's World is not the first time producer Roger Corman has been the subject of a documentary film, but until the next one comes along, Alex Stapleton's stands definitive.

Camel Spiders

Welcome to the arac war.


Rod Lott
Camel Spiders is no Arachnophobia, but it does try to be anything but the cheap creature feature that it is. Like the recent Sharktopus and Dinoshark, it’s another science-gone-wrong pic from producer Roger Corman, and even my 6-year-old son was able to recognize one of the man’s filmmaking tenets from scene one: "Already action already!"

The Nurses Collection

Nurse! Oh, nurse!


Rod Lott

Amid this nation's debate over the so-called "Obamacare" plan, one question has been unanswered, until now: "When are Roger Corman's nurse movies going to get a proper DVD release?" As we say regularly on these digital pages, Shout! Factory to the rescue.

12 Creature Features

Need a dozen ways to kill a weekend? Just add cheese!


Rod Lott
I don't know that Mill Creek Entertainment's three-disc set of 12 Creature Features is quite the "dream come true" for "B-movie lovers" as the box proclaims, but that's only because so much of the contents likely already exist in their collections of public-domain DVDs.
