Plot Summary:
"In a dark and dreary death-row cell block of a women's prison in South Carolina, a deranged female serial killer named Tara (Debbie Rochon) reads to her impending executioner (Gunner Hansen) 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!"

Review Date: 24 July 2008 My Rating: out of 5

 

Debbie Rochon and Gunnar Hansen star in this low rent (itís a Troma Team release) horror film about a psycho witch prisoner on death row who tells her executioner three tales of supposed terror whilst she waits to be offed.

The first tale concerns a mother whose kids have gone missing, the second deals with a young trailer trash wife who seeks a witches help when she is abused by her husband and the third concerns some leather clad bikers who perform a ritual.

The film is a low rent Creepshow wannabe with the first tale almost in danger of committing copyright infringement from said film. The second tale is laughably badÖespecially the atrocious FX work and the third was a bore fest (Iíll admit it; I fast forwarded my Sky+).

The film is only really watchable for the wraparound segment which features our stars, has decent effects work and is a tad creepy.

OVERALL SUMMARY
This is a one woman show. One for fans of Rochon only.
