Wow, what a movie! The Ladies Club aka The Sisterhood aka Violated was directed by Janet Greek who also directed the semi-classic Spellbinder (1988). This film was based on the Betty Black/Casey Bishop novel "The Sisterhood" (1977).
The movie stars Karen Austin, Diana Scarwid, Christine Belford, Bruce Davison, Shera Danese, Beverly Todd, Marilyn Kagan, Arliss Howard, Paul Carafotes, Nicholas Worth and James LeGros. The score was composed by Lalo Schifrin.
The cast did a pretty good job. The Ladies Club looks like a tv-movie at times but then again there´s two rape scenes (no nudity) and one rather nasty murder sequence.
I had to laugh during the montage sequence where the ladies drugged few rapists, castrated them and had fun while drinking champagne. Unbelievable stuff
All in all this is a pretty sad movie but it will definitely make you think.
