Full Moon presents
The 8th Release from The Jess Franco Collection
WOMEN IN CELLBLOCK 9 (1978)
From the fevered, wonderfully perverted minds of Spanish filmmaker Jess Franco and Swiss producer Erwin C. Dietrich (JACK THE RIPPER) comes the notorious women-in-prison shocker WOMEN IN CELLBLOCK 9 (aka Frauen für Zellenblock 9 and Tropical Inferno). The controversial film (it was and remains banned in the U.K.) stars Franco regulars Susan Hemingway, Howard Vernon and Karine Gambier and tells the tale of a gaggle of female freedom-fighters who are taken to a secluded women’s jungle prison where they endure all manner of violent and sexual humiliations.
Like all of the productions in the prolific Franco/Dietrich collaborative cannon (most of which are represented in Full Moon's limited edition Jess Franco DVD Collection), WOMEN IN CELLBLOCK 9 is a visually lush, erotic and explicit exploitation masterwork, armed with exotic locations, weird performances and a great, dreamy score by composer Walter Baumgartner.
Full Moon is proud to present this revered Jess Franco classic in a digitally remastered and restored and completely uncut transfer struck directly from Dietrich's own archival negative. Not for the easily offended (but what Franco film is?), WOMEN IN CELLBLOCK 9 is an essential trash movie gem not to be missed!
WOMEN IN CELLBLOCK 9 is available on Special Edition DVD on February 21, for rental or purchase on the Full Moon Amazon Channel and via Full Moon Streaming beginning February 8.
