The Pridemore Juvenile Detention Facility isn’t just a place for troubled teenage girls to serve their time. Instead, it’s a living hell filled with sexual depravity and violence. Jenny, a fresh inmate, becomes the de facto protector of Lisa, an innocent young girl forced to be a plaything to anyone after her body. Then there’s Charlie, a hardened teenaged lesbian who torments her fellow prisoners through brutal acts of sexual sadism. But no one instills more fear in even the toughest girls than the sadistic Edna who, with a blind eye turned by money-hungry Warden Sutter, delights in terrorizing her beautiful prisoners. However, the girls have had enough and things are about to change at Pridemore…
From acclaimed cult filmmaker Tom DeSimone (The Concrete Jungle), REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS is a sublimely trashy and over-the-top women in prison/juvenile delinquent classic, reframed for the grimy punk sensibilities of the 1980s. Starring punk rock superstar Wendy O. Williams (Candy Goes to Hollywood), cult film legend Sybil Danning (The Red Queen Kills Seven Times), and featuring a career performance from former Warhol Superstar Pat Ast (Paul Morrissey’s Heat), Vinegar Syndrome is proud to bring REFORM SCHOOL GIRLS to Blu-ray, featuring a brand new 2K scan along with hours of exclusive extras detailing the fascinating story of how this B-movie masterpiece came to be, that’s every bit as wild as the film itself!
