Cirio Santiago, Philippines, 1976, Vinegar Syndrome, Action

“Part pirate movie, part jungle action/adventure but mostly a women-in-prison film, THE MUTHERS does a great job of taking a group that commits unsavory acts as their means of existence and making the audience root for them.” -- Celluloid Terror

Sleaze ahoy! Directed by heroic smut merchant Cirio Santiago (TNT JACKSON, VAMPIRE HOOKERS) and shot on-the-cheap in the Philippines, THE MUTHERS is like stepping into one of Martin Denny's exotica LPs while it plays in Jess Franco's living room. Filled with nudity, karate chops, and epic psychedelic-funk jams, this is the story of two pirates (Jeanne Bell and Rosanne Katon) who rob and loot on the China Seas, get sent to a women's prison presided over by a sadistic warden, then revolt and turn the sky black with the smoke from their machine guns. In other words, this is the only revolutionary-pirate-women-in-prison movie that you'll ever need. Restored from the original negative for maximum savagery!
