Unread post by Lord Placebo » 2 years ago

An old man who lives in an old house conducts a correctional institute for girls. But he does not realize that the date is the present as he’s been cooped up in the house. He is assisted by a matron who likes to get the girls into trouble and present them in front of the old man who thinks he is the law and passes out punishment. Afterwards the girls are tied to a cross and whipped. Meanwhile the matron’s son falls in love with a girl at a party and brings her to the house.



DIRECTOR: Pete Walker

House of Whipcord, director Pete Walker’s S&M take on women in prison films, could be considered a template for present-day horrors such as Saw and Hostel and though most of the violence in Whipcord is offscreen, Walker manages to sustain a queasy atmosphere that packs a contemporary punch. The story of a senile judge and his sadistic lady friend who officiate over a private “prison” for wayward girls, this 1974 film is notable for its strong performances and politically charged subtext assailing the English courts.
