“When life is cheap, you bust out!”

An American college student is apprehended during a round-up in the banana republic of Rattica. She is incarcerated into the island penal system overseen by Wardress Von Krupp who is constructing the world’s greatest information extractor. Crocodiles, religious zealots, psycho inmates and voodoo-based experiments block her every escape. Life is cheap and the jungle explodes in Amazon Hot Box. James Bickert’s subversive love letter to the women in prison exploitation films of the seventies stars Tristan Risk (AMERICAN MARY), Ellie Church (JOHNNY Z), Kelsey Carlisle (HEADLESS), Jordan Phipps (CLOSE CALLS), Jett Bryant (DEAR GOD NO!, FRANKENSTEIN CREATED BIKERS) and many more.
