Trailers from Hell Enters the ‘House of Whipcord’

Trailers from Hell Enters the 'House of Whipcord'

This week on Trailers from Hell, David DeCoteau talks lurid 1974 cult film “House of Whipcord” — set in a women’s prison.

“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.
