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

A great 'teenage' fantasy/story.
29 March 2004 | by videojohnSee all my reviews

This film was great. Talks about the trials of teenagers today. Really well done & written by a 14 yr. girl, who stars in it @ age 16.

Lot's of neat F/X computer graphics.

Although several "time shifts" are presented it all shows well looking at the picture in total.

A 'must see' for all young girls and should be shown in all Jr.High Schools throughout the USA.
