20 years ago, serialkiller and rapist Shadow (Tony Todd) was executed, but not before making a deal witht he devil - which inexplicably caused his body to blow up upon dying from a lethal injection.

Now: The place where Shadow was executed has since become a women's prison, and tough Solitaire( (Carla Greene) is the new kid on the block. But she soon makes a name of herself when she defeats the prison's head bully Mondo (Tatianna Butler), and eventually, Solitaire, your typical loner, even makes friends with her pregnant cellmate Emily (Cat Miller). However, she also has flashbacks to Shadow's murders, and it seems her own mother was one of his victims.

What nobody knows though is that the prison is a powderkeg about to explode, since prison Doctor Swann (Michael Quinlan) is injecting random inmates of the prison with a serum made from Shadow's blood, including Mondo, Emily's baby once it's born and Solitaire. But while the serum makes Solitaire almost supernaturally strong, it turns the others into flesh-eating zombies ... which would be bad enough, but then Shadow - who was buried on the prison's grounds - rises from the dead, and he brings a zombie army with him ... and before you know it, pretty much everyone gets killed by the zombies, everybody but Solitaire, who has a (martial arts-)showdown with Shadow, during which she learns that he is actually her father, but somehow, Shadow also gives away his secret about how to be killed by a magic dagger left to Solitaire by her mother ... and of course, Shadow is killed in the end.


A blend of women in prison- and zombie-cinema with (rather well executed) martial arts thrown into the mix is something that at least sounds interesting - but unfortunately, the finished product leaves much to be desired, mainly because of a cliché-riddled and overly convoluted script that lacks stringency, a directorial effort that seriously lacks atmosphere (not at all helped by sets and costumes so colourful they make the women's prison look like candyland), and a serious lack of charismatic actors and actresses. That said, the film is not a total loss, it might work just fine as a party movie, but it's far from the fun it could have been.
