Only hours after their wedding, Olga (Uta Koepke) & Michel (Ángel Caballero) are captured on the premises of Magda's (Ajita Wilson) women's prison, & while Michel is let go scott free (since he is no woman), Magda decides to let Olga stay for a while, at a place where not only the prisoners but also the guards run around topless all the time.

And Magda is a real darling with her prisoners too, those who behave unruly she hunts down through alligator infested waters as a sport, often accompanied by her close friend gouvernor Mendoza (Antonio Mayans), whom she also every now & again sends some girls over, like 17-year old Tara (Ursula Buchfellner), who is not only there to pleasure him but also his horny wife Loba (Gina Janssen).

But Mendoza has a problem, he can't get it up anymore, so Tara soon becomes Loba's sexslave, but Loba is a bit of a bitch herself & soon sells Tara to white slaver Mario (Otto W.Retzer), who soon enough sells her through to a dirty brothel run by gay Lucas (Jess Franco).

But Mendoza has soon found a substitute for Tara, Conito (Andrea Guzon), & this time he has her raped by a dog ... & wouldn't you know it, watching this he gets an erection & can finally have sex with his wife again.

Of course, Loba shows her gratitude by selling her to Mario as well, who soon passes her on to ucas' brothel, but not before raping her.

But all is not lost, Michel has broken into Magda's prison, & even though he was temporarily caught by the guards & forced to have sex with Magda, he managed to free himself & now frees Olga as well ... & off they are to Lucas' brothel, to save Conito (Tara has since died), & together, the three (the women still topless, in case you wondered) pay Mendoza a friendly visit & shoot him & take his wife hostage, then use her to intrude Magda's prison again, where they free all the girls & organize a revolt, at the end of which they drive Magda - in the nude - out into the alligator infested waters she has hunted down so many (nude)  girls ...


The wall to wall sleaze version of a women in  prison film, with nudity, perversion & sadism everywhere (though nothing too explicite), and it seems to be the perfect playground for director Jess Franco: Here he can play out his own erotic fantasies, doesn't have to care for realism in the least & can question questionable cinematic conventions & instead emply his own cinematic language, consisting of unusual close-ups, massive zoom-ins & zoom-outs, & the camera occasinally drifting off  to details of the set nobody would have in the least expected ...

Still, Sadomania is not among Jess Franco's best films, alnmost totally missing is his trademark tongue in cheek humour (except in his own scenes as gay brothelowner), and most of the actors (especially Ursula Buchfellner & Uta Koepke, around whom large parts of the film are centered) just lack any charisma for the role ... charisma that just can't be substituted by a pair of reasonably lovely breasts (at least they put them on display all the time).

Still, if you can stand the sleaze, you might be mildly entertained.
