Emulating the “Women in Prison” exploitation from the 70’s, these guys have brought us Sugar Boxx – a movie about hookers hooking it up, getting thrown in jail, being abused, being made to turn tricks every Saturday – and their machete chopping revenge. This also comes complete with a score “Shaft” shat, whippings, abusive cops, abusive guards, the sadistic warden , delousing baths, a tickle fight, a muscle car, “hard core women who live like savages in the jungle”, frequent trips to the “Hot Box”, a fight in the local crick and even the actress from “Beneath the Mississippi” as the lead’s girlfriend; at least I think that’s her, I could never make out much in that particular film.
Things aren’t right at the Sugar State Women’s Prison deep in the Everglades where these female inmates sleep in tents out in the field, use outhouses, eat sandwiches with moldy bread and many of them don’t wear pants. Investigative journalist Valerie March (Geneviere Anderson) gets a note from her old high school friend’s grandma. Apparently her descendant has gotten into nothing but trouble since someone died and has been sent off to this hardcore prison. Valerie does some investigating and sentences for prostitution have gone up 400% over the last few months (I think), so she gets arrested and heads undercover. At first she butts heads with the resident macho Hispanic but beats her up, then goes at it with the macho African American, but then they become friends and start to work together. Before too long she has seduced the female warden and her and her buddy Loretta (Thela Brown) have been added to the prostitution ring – which is a pretty swanky chateau complete with swimming pool, you know, where they send all of the classy, drug addicted prison inmates to sex up each other and local politicians. Blah, blah, blah, this is pretty bad. Things get slightly exciting during the big prison break, but it’s sure not worth sitting through to get to the last 16 minutes.
Make no mistake, this movie is not good, but I wouldn’t call it Most Unclean. This is not anything like the gritty “Caged Women” Grindhouse movies of the 70s or even the 80s despite what the production company indicates: “Sugar State Women’s Prison. An Everglades hellhole where innocent girls are forced to slave in the swamps by day then turn tricks for the warden by night. A prison camp where corruption, brutality, and sexual abuse are all part of the daily routine. But when reporter Valerie March goes undercover inside Sugar State, that’s when the powder keg really explodes! Follow Valerie through prison life – catfights, knife fights, whippings, prostitution, and the “hot box” – before she and her fellow inmates take bloody, unforgettable revenge on their captors. Inspired by the great women-in-prison films of the past, SUGAR BOXX takes everything one step further… SUGAR BOXX has it all! SUGAR BOXX stars Geneviere Anderson (CSI Miami) as the smart-ass reporter, Kitten Natividad (Russ Meyer’s UP!) as the lusty matron, and The’la “Rain” Brown (Flavor Of Love) as a hilariously foul-mouthed hooker…“
Anyway, this move pretty much sucks the big one.
