      No Absolom? You do an insanes movie prisons and forgot "No Escape", top bats**t prison flick and you've got... Carbonite? You've probably never seen Roadhouse have you? I despair. Go to movie hell where all movies are Rifftrax featuring Justin Bieber, Zac Efron and Paris Hilton and probably 3D. And where's the LA cryogenic prison from Demolition Man?

      Nice write ups but come on, missing lots of classics (and plenty other not so classic... ;-) In addition to the Demolition Man's Cocteau Cryoprison and No Escape's Absolom Island... where's Camp Holliday and its exploding neck collars from the film Wedlock?? Stephen "Ned Ryerson!" Tobolowsky is the g*****ned Warden!! Exploding neck collars stolen from Running Man's opening prison scene by the way! check out my list at http://moviemiscellany.com/some-fictional-prisons-from-films/

      So, a *lot* of omissions. To summarise: - Demolition Man - Escape From Absolom - Escape From New York - The Matrix (high concept prison) Cube isn't technically a prison, more like an experiment. And Shawshank doesn't fullfill the "insane" requirement. And Total Film, for frak's sake, learn to type Alien³ correctly. It's this easy, see?

      Oh in Superman 2, that wasn't Red Kryptonite!! Red Kryptonite makes you lose your morals more or less, it wouldn't have made them lose their powers. Blue would have done that.
