Plans to create Locker 13 began in 2007 after Waldron met Adam and Donovan Montierth of Brothers Ink Productions at a film festival, where they started planning an anthology feature film. The trio sought other filmmakers to join the film by utilizing social media and writing websites, and raised funding via a successful Kickstarter campaign.


Critical reception for Locker 13 has been predominantly negative. The film holds a rating of 13% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 8 reviews. On Metacritic it has a score of 22% based on 6 reviews.

Variety and The Hollywood Reporter both panned the film, and The Hollywood Reporter commented that Despite a couple of mildly arresting vignettes, this philosophy-minded effort doesn’t offer enough genuine thrills to compensate for its pretensions. gave the movie 1 star and criticized it as being amateurishly acted, illogically plotted, cruelly violent and needlessly sexist . In contrast, Fangoria gave the movie 2 1/2 out of 4 stars and stated that Occasionally problematic, LOCKER 13 makes up for its weaknesses with good performances, intriguing stories and an unconventional approach to its segments. Twitch Film called the film fine, light entertainment but noted that it may not stand out or linger long after viewing .
