An outlaw band flees a posse and rides into Refuge, a small town where no one carries a gun, drinks, or swears. The town is actually Purgatory, and the peaceful inhabitants are all famous dead outlaws and criminals such as Doc Holiday and Wild Bill Hickok who must redeem themselves before gaining admittance to Heaven...or screw up and go to Hell. The residents must either defend themselves against the outlaws and risk eternal damnation... or die a second time. Written by
All of the Purgatory residents' assumed names are nature-based: Forest, Glen, Ivy, Rose, Woods, Lamb. See more »
In Purgatory, the people must live in peace for 10 years before being accepted into heaven. However, Wild Bill Hickok died in 1876 and Doc Holliday died in 1887, 11 years later. According to the movie's plot, they could not have been in purgatory together. See more »
I love a good western, and this would have to be one of the best I have ever seen. What a beautiful storyline, what a great place Refuge was. I hope that it truly is like that when we pass away. I don't know what those people did (good) that let them go to refuge, rather than straight to Hell, because all of the Blackjack gang (about 30) went straight to Hell, rather than purgatory. I don't know why Jesse James, Wild Bill and Doc didn't go straight to Hell for their sins, but where given a second chance, unlike the Blackjack gang. I actually got this movie without reading the back cover, so I didn't know what to expect. I was so surprised with this movie. I will watch it many times
