After the death of his brother, Mick Kovacs (Robert Bronzi) travels to America to seek justice. Framed for attempted murder, he is sent to the notorious Pleasant Hill Penitentiary where survival is an everyday struggle.

” …the audio is extremely distracting, the actors aren’t that good, and the story could certainly use some work. What it does well, though, is to keep what story it does have moving at a brisk pace so it doesn’t seem like the movie is overly long […] The fight scenes aren’t anything to write home about but the final act of the film is essentially one long action sequence and you have to love that.” Bulletproof Action

“Weighing it all out, Escape from Deathblock 13 is an average low-budget action film.” Voices from the Balcony


In the USA, Uncork’d Entertainment will release Escape from Death Block 13 On-Demand on November 2 and on DVD on November 23, 2021.
