Storyline

After college graduation, Heck Prigusivac heads home to New Pristina, Montana, to get a few things before driving to Seattle to teach Latin. His mother's alcoholism (she needs care Heck can't afford) and his gene pool get in the way: Heck's father was executed for murder, his brother Chick is on death row at the local penitentiary, and Heck's rare personality profile suggest he'd make an excellent executioner. He reluctantly takes the job as prison "closer." There, his life-long sibling rivalry continues, and he's attracted to Dori Dumchovic, Chick's high school girlfriend and the only woman on death row. Will Heck have to put his lover and his own brother to death? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Waiste of time
7 September 2006 | by Barbaverde123See all my reviews

If hell exists, this movie will win an Oscar over there. The torture would be that you will be made to watch it, and watch it get an Oscar.

TOTAL WAISTE OF TIME, LIFE AND ENERGY.

Story sucked, started sort of OK, might have been something but then turned into some stupid boring redneck crap. I had to forward it to see the end and that's it.

I waisted 40 min before I realised that this is going nowhere.

When it started and we got to the death row topic, thought this might be an interesting "noir" ,some sort of black comedy about death row.

Turned out it is SH#T.
