Storyline

PURGATRORY HOUSE chronicles the after-life journey of a lonely teen who abandoned her life of peer pressure only to find herself caught between Heaven and Hell. Here she will remain 14-years-old forever unless she can find within herself the courage to change. Filmed in 2001 with miniDV cameras and edited on early home-based computers, "Purgatory House" marked the beginning of the democratization of film. Written by and starring a 14-year-old at-risk high school student, Celeste Davis was the [then] first youngest sole-credited feature screenwriter to have a feature distributed. Written by Publicity Services

This is a must watch !!!
19 January 2007 | by jdougilSee all my reviews

I was not sure about this movie at first, but after learning more about the writer and star of the movie I was very pleased. The overall felling of the movie was more like a play then a movie, and I think that is a good thing.

The director of the movie did an outstanding job. The move flowed with ease from scene to scene. And I can't wait to see more from this young woman.

The 14 year old star and writer of this movie was GREAT!! Her acting was far better then many so called established stars at twice her age. And considering this was here first role, she has a great future!

I hope many have the chance to see this movie, the ideas set forth in it are profound and complex.
