Overview

Fired from his job and abandoned by his wife, an everyday guy who has fallen on hard times finds out just how much worse things can get when he is killed in a car accident and sent to Purgatory to battle the forces of darkness in a visually dazzling fantasy adventure from director Philip Cook. Upon finding himself in his strange new surroundings, Gordon (Mark Redfield) is immediately besieged by the malevolent Shadowmen and the tormented Ragmen, each of whom thrive on laying waste to helpless lost souls. Thankfully Gordon isn't alone in this strange new landscape, and after taking up with a heroic gang of otherworldly freedom fighters who had given their lives in the name of fighting for good, he sets out to conquer the fortress of the supremely powerful and brutally merciless Despiser; the ultimate ruler of this Godless land of chaos.

    Fun Visit to Purgatory

    Okay, it’s a little different. No, it doesn’t have a gazillion dollar budget. But this film has a lot of heart and pizazz. DESPISER is obviously a labor of love. It’s not for everybody; but it’s creative. A fantasy artist wrecks his car and finds himself in purgatory. I dug its visual creativity. Watching this film was like peaking into someone’s dreamlike fantasies. You know … those surreal, twilight fun dangerous kinda of dreams. It’s very stylized. Like a painting. Like an artist’s interpretation of reality. Like what I imagine was going on in Phil Cook’s (Director/Writer/EFX dude) I mean Gordon Hauge’s imagination. It moves. It’s visual. It’s got cool action. It’s got monsters! Stylized? Yeah. Like opera. Over the top. I enjoyed it. Thumbs up from me and for little pictures like this that strive for big things.
