Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...The Big Bird Cage (1972) - A 1972 exploitation film of the "women in prison" subgenre. It serves as a non-sequel follow-up to the 1971 film The Big Doll House. The film was written and directed by Jack Hill, and stars Pam Grier, Sid Haig, Anitra Ford, and Carol Speed.

A buxom bad girl named Blossom (Pam Grier) is the rough-and-ready girlfriend of a radical guerrilla leader named Django (Sid Haig). But when Django's mercenary friends itch for some female companionship, they devise a plan to liberate the inmates of a local women's prison. With the help of another new inmate (Anitra Ford), Blossom and Django go up against a tyrannical warden (Andrés Centenera) to stage an explosive breakout.

This is a great selection from the Women in Prison sexploitation genre. Produced by the master, Roger Corman, the film actually will hold your attention, even when there isn't female flesh on screen.

Video after the jump!

I'm pretty sure this will be my next review. Or not, you know how I can be...

I love the trailer, It's narrated by a guy who did hundreds of voice-overs for exploitation trailers. He has a voice so deep, that you know every morning when he arrived at the recording studio, they sent an intern down with a wheelbarrow to help him carry his testicles into the studio. You'll know what I mean when you hear his voice.

(The trailer is NSFW, there's some nudity, because, hey! It's a freaking women in prison movie!)

Available for streaming via Netflix.
