Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Jonathan Demme's debut film is campy, choppy, and generally immature, though his bonding themes are fitfully discernible amid the cartoonish action."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Vibrant take on multicultural grindhouse sisterhood"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Caged Heat is contractual exploitation, an example of Roger Corman's trademark bargain filmmaking with obligated nudity and violence."
‑ Rumsey Taylor, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"You may have heard this was a cheeky women's-prison-movie spoof that's really clever. It's not."
‑ Christopher Null,
"It's no more than passable as a thriller, but the density of invention and energy in other respects is enough to shame a dozen contemporary major studio movies."
‑ , Time Out
"Contains a skits-within-the-movie sequence that comments on the narrative while also exposing the artificiality, absudity and performance aspect of the 'Women in Prison' trend itself."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"The director's peppery edge and humour lift this above the normal drive-in fare and Steele adds punch."
‑ , Film4
" exploitation film of the women's prison variety that doesn't take itself too seriously."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl
"An exciting film, and one that proves that even the most exploitative of films can make a relevant statement."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"an odd but compelling mish-mash of breast parade and hokey action . . . with dark and visceral imagery that lends "Caged Heat" more street cred than it would normally deserve."
‑ Brian Mckay,
