Storyline

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 <crow_steve@hotmail.com>

Purgatory:A place where the wild west heroes get a second chance
11 July 2000 | by (Bedfordshire,England;) – See all my reviews

Purgatory is a little gem of a movie of which i really enjoyed. I am always a little weary of TV movies they nearly always teld to have low budget scripts and low budget acting but not this film. The film is about a gang of outlaws who ride into a town way in the middle of nowhere. The occupants are over hospitable and are extremely law abiding,they dont carry guns and they visit the church every day. The bandits start to take advantage of their hosts genourosity and start tearing up the town. This is when the residents true identities are revealed. Great entertainment. 8 out of 10.
