Women Unchained (1974)

aka Escape from Cell BlockThree, aka 5 Angry Women

How bad is it? It's a fairly typical women's prison film from the 1970's.
Should you see it? If you've seen the 20 or so better similar films already, you probably will see this.

I added and deleted this film from this blog repeatedly; it keeps making "worst-of" lists, but I'm not sure why, except that it's about an escape from a women's prison so it doesn't have the usual women-in-prison trappings. They kill a guard, escape and then bicker endlessly. There's a bad car chase. Then they go to a farm house and one of the girls rapes a guy. Then they get involved with a pimp. Eventually, four of them get killed, but you won't care by then. I actually saw this on broadcast TV and thought they must've edited out all the sex and violence, but there wasn't much to begin with.
