Prison Flicks

Welcome to Prison Flicks, the premier web site devoted to reviewing and discussing prison movies.

Prison movies run the gamut from high art to mass-market entertainment to b-movies. Basically anything you can do in a movie can be done in a prison movie. You want a love story? Well, it might not be Hepburn and Tracy, but love sometimes blooms within prison walls (and I’m not even talking about that). Even high-seas adventures are possible with the prison-ship concept. But putting the characters in prison just makes it all so much more entertaining. The guards, the bars, the exercise yard, the smell of human animals packed into cages. So sit back, enjoy, and take a tour of the magical world of prison movies. From women in prison to the Shawshank Redemption, this is the site for you.
