When during a prison unrest, twin brothers Ross (Connor Paganini) and
Richard (James Paganini) are locked into the shower room and carelessly
discuss an inside drugdeal, they didn't expect Darrell (Wade Radford) to
listen in - and Darrell is the prison's chief bitch, the convict who runs
things from the inside ... so others moving in and trying to sell drugs on
his turf is nothing he's at all fond of. And thus he blows off his steam
exclusively on Ross, who admittedly is the more aggressive and provocative
of the two - but he's no match for Darrell, who's not only a violent
psycho but who also loves to play mindgames. So once he has physically
bested Ross, he lets him on the fact that he has a gay relationship with
his brother Richard, who's been a closet homosexual for years - which
pretty much breaks homophobic Ross ... so much so that he eventually calls
for the warden. But when wing gouvernor Mizz Munch arrives on the scene,
it turns out she's actually in league, and he soon let's her in on the
fact that Ross is hiding drugs in his ass - which she retrieves before
ass-raping Ross with her gun. Then though Darrell knocks her out cold and
ties her up, because he needs to let her know that he's running the prison
wing, and not her ...
When she comes to though with everything turned
against her favour, she turns out to not be one to give up by a longshot.
Quite the contrary, she seems to enjoy playing mindgames with Darrell
(almost as much as he does), and the two of them look more and more like
two sides of the same coin - but then, Darrell demands her to do something
quite beyond the ordinary in exchange for her freedom, something that
involves her gun and Ross's ass that goes quite beyond the rape from
While the first Boys
Behind Bars was more of a psychological drama taken to extremes,
this movie - a standalone story despite carrying over the character
Darrell - is more of a serious mindfuck, an example of what happens when
the loonies take over the bin. And the movie's good at it, too, as it puts
more emphasis on the psychological aspects of its story than just the
spectacle (even if some images are pretty disturbing in themselves). Now
add to this an ensemble cast really up to their roles, and a well-paced
directorial effort that really gets the most out of its very limited
locations, and you've got yourself a really nice little movie - well, nice
at least if you can see through some of the more offensive and at times
self-consciously trashy stuff and see the quite interesting drama beneath.
