Escola Penal de Meninas Violentadas (1977)
Description: The newcomer Marli (Sueli de Fátima Aoki) arrives in a remote reformatory in the countryside ruled by the sadistic and insane Mother Superior Maria do Socorro (Meiry Vieira) and her retarded deaf and dumb henchman Carrasco. The Mother Superior punishes the inmates for any minor fault, and they are brutally whipped or raped by Carrasco to exorcise the demons that possess them. The Mother Superior is worshiped by the deranged sister Clara and the other nuns and the inmates do not have any means of communication with the distant town. The only vehicle is a jeep and the keys are kept in the possession of the Mother Superior. When the prisoner Cinira (Zélia Martins) is helped by a stranger, she learns that Maria do Socorro is not who she tells she is and the man seeks evidences of the brutal treatment of the inmates.
“Escola Penal de Meninas Violentadas” is a Brazilian film of exploitation genre and the exploitation begins in its title that means “Penal School for Raped Girls”. The acting is awful, and the stupid story has a corny and unreasonable conclusion with Cinira leaving the facility with the detective that helped her without any explanation. Antonio Meliande select a good cast in the Boca do Lixo, with the women exposed all the time and the intent of this flick is achieved. My vote is three.
Young prostitutes are driven to school criminal, but the institution is run by a mother which requires students torture sessions and dread. Police suspect the workhouse and the director decides to investigate. The circle closes for religious and slowly, their secrets are discovered.
A rare brazilian WIP for the project even if it’s one of the worst rip I’ve ever seen.
