Skip, the nighttime janitor in an Old West theme park, delves into the mysteries surrounding an old locker. His sage supervisor recounts chilling tales that underscore the importance of making the right choice. The recollection includes an aging boxer who is given an opportunity to become a real killing machine, a young man seeking membership in a secret society who experiences an initiation with deadly consequences, a would be suicide shaken to his core by a menacing member of a very special club, and a hit man for hire playing a devious cat and mouse game with three women who have a score to settle. The stories suddenly come into play when Skip makes an unsettling discovery and faces a life-or-death decision of his own. Written by

I have always been a fan of horror anthologies, whether they be in comic book form (like those 1950s EC Comics) or in movie form. So it should come as no surprise that I've seen a LOT of horror anthologies. Which may explain why I had a big problem with "Locker 13". Since I have seen so many short horror tales with big twists at the end, in recent years I have found new horror anthologies to be very predictable. Of the five stories told in "Locker 13", I was able to more or less guess what "surprise" twist would happen on four of these stories. The one story that I wasn't able to predict the ending (a secret society new member initiation) had a ending that was disappointing in another manner, just petering out with NO surprise at all. While this movie isn't the worst horror anthology I have seen - it has some genuine merit, like good acting and fine production values for what was a pittance of a budget - if you are looking for neat twists and surprises, you better look elsewhere. Unless you've never seen a horror anthology before.
