Storyline

Haunted Prison - AKA Death Row - a horrifying live action film based on the short story by Kevin VanHook-takes place at Isla de la Roca Penitentiary. Rumor has it the Devil himself spat up the place out of the depths of hell, and man turned it into a prison for the most dangerous prisoners in the South. The monstrous building is steeped in the evil created by centuries of murder and injustice and is haunted by vengeful ghosts. Isla de la Roca was abandoned after being soaked in blood by a horrific massacre of inmates and guards. A gang of fugitives from a cop-killing robbery seek refuge within the razor wire of the prison walls at the same time as a documentary film crew arrives to tell the story of the penitentiary. When these groups cross paths within the cruel walls of Isla de la Roca, will anyone get out alive? Written by Anonymous

Decent time-waster
2 January 2011 | by BakuryuuTyrannoSee all my reviews

About the worst aspect of Death Row is its cast; not because of the acting but because with half the characters being criminals, ones shown to be without qualms about killing, there's not much reason to invest in these guys.

Sure, Steven Monroe made similar characters somewhat sympathetic in Sasquatch Mountain, but Monroe's movies usually put more effort into the characters than most horror movie crews do today...

Anyways, we see these people's deaths coming from miles away. Fortunately, the writers managed to think of interesting methods of offing people, and there is occasional humor thrown in, keeping the inevitable entertaining.

Most importantly, it is fun horror. While watching people get offed one by one, without any atmosphere or investment in the characters, keeping it entertaining is important.
