Linda Blair is Back! CHAINED HEAT at the Hi-Pointe Midnights this Weekend!
If you enjoyed Linda Blair in SAVAGE STREETS, the Late Night Grindhouse Midnight offering the past November, I have great news! Linda Blair and her naked sneer are back at the Hi-Pointe this weekend, January 6th and 7th, for more 80’s exploitation madness. CHAINED HEAT, a wonderfully sleazy trash epic from 1983 has everything you could possibly hope for in a Women-In-Prison movie: nudity, shower catfights, rampant lesbian action, nudity, race wars, rape, murder, Sybil Danning, chain-swinging, switch-blade slashing, and more nudity!
CHAINED HEAT stars Linda Blair as Carol, a naïve teenager who enters the ‘D-Cup’ wing of a tough women’s prison after being sentenced to 18 months after accidentally killing a man. There she encounters the cruel reality of life behind bars. There’s a massive drug ring running the prison, and most of the girls are picking off traitors threatening to reveal the conspiracy and when Carol finds herself in the midst of a bloody gang war between whites and blacks, she has to toughen up quick.
Throw in a sweaty John Vernon as the cokehead warden with a hot tub in his office, Blaxploitation Queen Tamara ‘Cleopatra Jones’ Dobson as a tough-talking inmate named Dutchess (“Don’t you walk away from me, you chalk-faced whore!”), a butch Stella Stevens, and Henry Silva as a pimp and….what are you waiting for!?! CHAINED HEAT is the crowning jewel of all Women’s Prison films and if you don’t make it to the Hi-Pointe this weekend to see it in glorious 35mm, then something is wrong with you!
CHAINED HEAT plays as part of the Destroy the Brain monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series. It will be screened midnights in a 35mm print at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Avenue) this Friday and Saturday (January 6th and 7th). The pre-show begins at 11:30.
