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 Patay

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 »

This film just plain reeks...
24 June 2002 | by (Warren, Oregon) – See all my reviews

Jailed serial killer (Rochon) spins three horror yarns to her executioner in a haunted prison cellblock. The film as whole just plain reeks of mediocrity, the acting, sets and special effects are below even b-movie standards. The only saving grace is the performances of Rochon and Hansen and the second story which is tolerable.
