Critic Reviews for Purgatory House
The names of Cindy Baer and Celeste Davis belong on the V.I.P. list of promising new filmmakers
There's a lack of polish and, more importantly, an uninhibited demeanor to Davis's script which work well for the subject matter
A charming, touching, clever and all-around brilliantly crafted film about teen suicide.
Audience Reviews for Purgatory House
Summary: A film about a teen girl who commits suicide and ends up living in purgatory. The Good: This film is very ambitious, and pretty good being that it was written by a 14 year old. It is definitely not your average same old boring movie, it breaks the mold and is surprisingly original. For being very low budget the acting is decent (with exceptions), story is solid, and though the soundtrack is completely just popular songs performed by unknown cover-bands, it still sounds good. The Bad: I didn't really like the visual style of the film. I think it probably would have been better if I streamed in HD but I do think it was better than having no visual style at all. Ratings: Acting: 6/10 Story: 6/10 Originality: 7/10 Soundtrack: 7/10 Characters: 4/10 Overall: 6/10
I don't really know what to say about it. It deals with a very deep, emotional subject. I say with being written by a 14 year old it really is quite powerful and eye opening. I give it a thumbs up even though it's not the cream of the crop.
Creative & playful look into heaven, hell, God, and purgatory of course - done by a 14 year old girl.
