The Film
An old locker at an old west theme park holds mysteries and stories of morality. Skip works as the overnight janitor and his boss tells him the tales of the locker's contents, from a boxer with declining skills who gets a pair of old gloves and becomes a killing machine to an initiation into a secret society and even a doppleganger of Skip living his life and making a mess of it with dire consequences.

Do you remember that old show Fact Or Fiction? Probably not, but the point of that show was they'd show you a few stories of weird, strange or bizarre stories and you were supposed to guess if that story was based on an actual event or not and they'd reveal at the end which stories were fact and which were fiction. LOCKER 13 feels like an episode of that show except there is no reveal at the end. The stories presented are mildly entertaining, and feature some familiar faces throughout. This isn't going to change your life for the better and it won't offend you because it's so bad. LOCKER 13 is purely a middle of the road time waster.

The Audio & Video
Arc Entertainment's DVD release of LOCKER 13 is rock solid. The anamorphic widescreen 2.35:1 transfer looks good. The image is clean and strong with just a few moments of softness. The 5.1 Dolby Digital track is very good as well. The mix is well done and free of any background noise. 

The Extras
A trailer for the film is the lone extra.

The Bottom Line
LOCKER 13 is worth a rental look.

LOCKER 13 is available HERE
