Storyline

In a dark and dreary death-row cell block of a women's prison in South Carolina, a deranged female serial killer named Tara reads to her impending executioner three horror stories based on the 'voices' that compelled her to write during her years on death row. In "Watery Grave" a young woman is plagued by constant nightmares of her two missing children whom were reputed to have been drowned. In "White Trash Love Story" an abused, trailer-trash wife decides to get back at her abusive husband by using witchcraft, which doesn't go as planned. In "Big Rhonda" an outlaw motorcycle gang shows it's newest member a blood-oath ritual for one of their long-dead members. But the bikers don't see their newest addition for what he is, but the undead Rhonda does. Written by matt-282

Trivia

The original title, "Hellblock 666", was changed to Hellblock 13 because of the heavily Christian area the movie was being shot in, this concerned producers who were trying to secure locations. They ran into trouble finding locations with the original title and were able to secure a closed down jail after altering the suffix of the title from '666' to '13'. See more »

I was Tromafied
19 June 2001 | by (Cadogan,PA U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

If you are a true Troma fan,you will love this movie. Debbie Rochan showed a great performance. Gunnar Hansen,the original Leatherface, also makes a appearance as their warden. Most of the stories are like most Troma movies with multiple tales of terror(such as chillers), they have a story that is all right and interesting. But they all have a real good ending. Also the ending of the main story is an excellent climax. I give it a 97/100
