One of the few female exploitation filmmakers to make a splash in the 60s and 70s, Stephanie Rothman (THE STUDENT NURSES, THE VELVET VAMPIRE) directs this clever, violent spin on the prison film TERMINAL ISLAND. Set on San Bruno island, a dumping ground for murderers in California prisons after the Supreme Court abolishes the death penalty, where they can roam free but can't leave. Fueled by Rothman's penchant for social commentary — most prominently on display in THE STUDENT NURSES — TERMINAL ISLAND bucks the usual trends of the WIP forumla in favor of a narrative that questions roles of gender and race all the while staying true to its exploitation pedigree.
