Rape, violence and jailbreaks: what inmates can watch on prison DVDs
"Movies showing graphic rape scenes, brutal violence and jailbreaks are available to inmates at a Welsh prison holding hundreds of sex offenders, Wales on Sunday can today reveal.
Prisoners held at HMP Usk in Monmouthshire have access to a library of 550 DVDs – including gruesome horror flicks and movies showing sexual violence and the seedy criminal underworld of gangs and drugs.
The selection has been condemned as “completely and utterly inappropriate” by a prisons experts and leading politicians.
Among the library of DVDs available to inmates are gory 18-rated horror films The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal and crime thriller The Bank Job – about a major bank robbery.
Cons at the prison – which mainly holds sex offenders – can also access 1991 fugitive thriller Thelma & Louise, which features a scene showing an attempted rape, and box office hit Deliverance, which features a notorious male rape scene."
