'House of Whipcord'

This week on Trailers from Hell, David DeCoteau talks lurid 1974 cult film "House of Whipcord" -- set in a women's prison.

"House of Whipcord," director Pete Walker's S&M take on women in prison films, could be considered a template for present-day horrors such as "Saw" and "Hostel" and though most of the violence in Whipcord is offscreen, Walker manages to sustain a queasy atmosphere that packs a contemporary punch. The story of a senile judge and his sadistic lady friend who officiate over a private "prison" for wayward girls, this 1974 film is notable for its strong performances and politically charged subtext assailing the English courts.
