In all the annals of exploitation cinema, there has never been anything quite like it. Take a luscious young bride (beautiful Playboy centerfold Ursula Fellner) thrust into a brutal prison camp run by a sadistic woman warden (the stunning transsexual adult film star Ajita Wilson). Add generous helpings of lesbian lust, bestial perversion and some very extreme violence. Then mix in a jaw dropping performance by the films controversial director as a degenerate white slaver. Do you dare take a forbidden taste of the wildest women-in-prison movie ever made?

Our thoughts:
Never really read the back of the DVD until just now, filling out that information and to simply put it. It’s bullshit. One of the most brutal and wildest WIP flicks ever made? Not even close. What you’ll find here is a very typical and generic WIP (women in prison) flick, that you could even find on late night cable. About as brutal as it gets is when the warden forces a woman to run through a swamp, naked of course, while she hunts them down, and shoots them. Then lets the local puppets…err…I mean crocodiles, devour them.

The rest of the movie is filled with typical Franco sleaze, lesbian heavy petting, nudity, the warden having her way with men and women, etc. Sure the movie does try to be different and “shocking,” by having one of the female prisoners getting raped by a dog. Come on though, when you’ve got D’Amato having a woman actually jerking off a horse in one his movies, seeing simulated beastiality just comes off as silly and a little on the ridiculous side. Or extremely perverted, depends on how you look at those sort of things.
If you are a fan of Jess Franco and enjoyed his other WIP movies like "Ilsa, The Wicked Warden", or just in general enjoy those type of movies, then you will probably like Sadomania aswell. As I said, nothing to find here that deviates from the norm, but if you're looking for something where not a single frame passes by where you don't see some tits, bush or ass, then you have found your movie my friend.

Although no matter how bad these Franco flicks get, (and they are bad) I’ll continue watching them.

Positive things:
- I’m drawing a blank.
Negative things:
- Typical WIP flick, not shocking or brutal at all.

Gore: 1/5
Nudity: 4/5
Story: 2/5
Effects: 1/5
Comedy: 2/5
