Nightmare in Badham County (1976)

"Where Innocence Is A Punishable Crime"

Two UCLA coeds have engine trouble in small Southern town.
When they spurn the local sheriff's advances
he arranges for them to be taken to the women's prison on trivial charges (the judge is a cousin),
where they must endure atrocities at the hands of the administrators of the prison and the prison guards.

This was a good and sleazy ABC made-for-tv wip (women in prison) flick directed by John Llewellyn Moxey.
Starring Deborah Raffin, Lynne Moody, Chuck Connors, Fionnula Flanagan, Tina Louise,
Robert Reed, Della Reese and Ralph Bellamy.

This must be one of the most disturbing tv-movies ever and here´s the reason why:

So, if Nightmare in Badham County was a made for TV movie, you ask, then where did all that skin and sleaze come from?
Well, apparently, even though ABC paid for the film, while it was in production,
the actual filmmakers decided to shoot some additional scenes of gratuitous nudity and lesbian brutality
with a notion of a naughtier, foreign theatrical release, and eventually, this version would also hit the video aisles in the States.

Don´t you just love that kind of crew [Cool]
