REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS (1986)
Tongue-in-cheek riff on your standard WiP pic actually comes pretty close to emulating the genuine thing. Tasty shower scenes, butchy matrons, cat fights, wrongly accused innocents and a stellar prison break make this as good as any Corman WiP classic like The Big Dollhouse or The Big Bird Cage. Pat Ast is the sadistic henchwoman to Sybil Danning’s wicked warden. But the real star here is the late Wendy O. Williams, stomping and snarling through the movie like a rabid wolverine in a leather bikini. The biggest running gag is that many of this prison’s inmates dress in sexy lingerie. A nice combo of gasps and giggles helped make this a deserving cable classic.
