Wait a minute… are The Aslyum making semi-original movies nowadays, as opposed to blatant spoofs and rip-offs of recognizable titles?! A few weeks back, I caught an advance screening of their flick THE FAST AND THE FIERCE, which I half-expected to be a FAST AND FURIOUS knock-off, but instead, it was more in line with the TURBULENCE series. (Plane drama!)
Now, we’ve got the premiere of one of their latest LOCKED UP! This one’s kind of riffing on the “girls in prison” or “reform school girls” sub-genre, only not quite as exploitive, although this still looks like it could be sleazy fun. Oh wait, it’s a sequel to something called JAIL BAIT? Have a look at the trailer and press release below!
Bloody fight thriller LOCKED UP, the sequel to cult classic JAIL BAIT is coming!
When an American teenager gets bullied at her school in Southeast Asia, she fights back–and gets sent to a reform school. But the “school” is more like a prison, and the young teenager must fend off predatory guards and menacing gangs to survive. From the home of SHARKNADO, The Asylum, comes LOCKED UP – a no-holds-barred thriller starring Christiana Chaiwanna, Katrina Grey, Kelly McCart and Jared Cohn. Cohn (LITTLE DEAD ROTTING HOOD) also directs.
LOCKED UP premieres June 20th on NETFLIX.
