The Slams (1973)


Jim Brown goes to prison after stealing drugs and millions from the mob. Inside, he deals with racially aligned gangs, predatory homosexuals and a member of the mob who wants the money and drugs back. Outside, his girlfriend is harassed for the same reason. He concocts a daring escape plan but needs help to pull it off. Shot inside a real California prison, but the script is more interested in excessively repellent acts of violence.
