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 »

For Debbie Rochon fans only!
17 April 2000 | by (Pleasant Valley, NY) – See all my reviews

Let it be said: This movie isn't very good. It runs the gamut from boring to stupid to ugly to cheap. Sometimes it achieves all four of those things at once.

It's an anthology flick with three short stories, but they move so slow you'll feel like you're watching a six hour pain-fest. In the first unengaging tale, a woman's kids are missing, and some dull things happen. Then there's "White Trash Love Story", by default the best segment in the movie, although it moves so slow you'll be asleep before the pretty good effects at the climax. Then there's the embarrassing tale of the over-age bikers who try to resurrect the late "Big Rhonda", mainly through some "hot" girl-on-girl action.

The film's saving grace is the beautiful Debbie Rochon's fun performance as the jailed serial killer Tara, who spins the pathetic tales of "terror". Luckily this movie is available on DVD, so you can skip directly to her parts in the movie.

But you're not gonna wanna even watch that much, because this movie really stinks. It falls below even Troma's admittedly low quality standards. Perhaps if they packed it with ideas like "Tromeo & Juliet" and gave it a sense of humor it would have been bearable, but as it stands, it is a big juicy crap burger.
