Movie Reviews

Purgartory House
Christine Petitfils | Sydney, Australia | 05/14/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I can appreciate the skill expressed in this film and it deserves the awards it has recieved as it is very creative when taking into consideration the age of the producer and writer however I threw the DVD out after the viewing and thought the story line was poor and nothing I would recommend."
An amazing accomplishment

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film is an amazing accomplishment for someone of any age, --let alone a 14-year-old writer/first time actress. Both sets of stories; the making of the movie, and the movie itself, are compelling, unique, inventive, raw, honest and captivating. Oddly enough, the grassroots/low budget syle of the film actualy ehanced the storytelling. If the film had higher production values, it would have detracted from this amazing story. My favorate films are ones that inspire, inform and educate. This film did all of these things, and more. It made me see the world differently, and appreciate the life I have."
