Big Doll House (1971)
  Roger Corman's violent, gratuitous classic.
Caged Heat (1974)
  Jonathan Demme debuted with this campy addition to the genre. He went on to direct Thelma & Louise. Amazing, huh.
Switchblade Sisters (1975)
  Gender-based power struggle, senseless violence, and endless camp make this movie one of my favorites of the genre.
Bandits (1997)
  Some German chicks form a band and break out of prison, and have a hit on the run. It really doesn't get any better than this. Surprisingly good film.
Chicago (2002)
  Did it deserve the Academy Award for Best Picture? Maybe, maybe not. But it's a good story, a good cast, and a good time. Queen Latifah steals the show in this women's prison.
