Purgatory - Cinema and Theatre of the Damned

purgatory / noun / an intermediate place or state of temporary suffering for expiatory purification

Within the word “purgatory”, it is easy to envision condemned souls, torment and darkness. However, purgatory may also reflect the cyclic state in which we often rediscover or recreate ourselves anew from within our personal inflictions. Sometimes it is the necessary stage to exorcise ourselves from the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps it is the serene place of self reflection and realization. From within this, the producers of the DAMNED exhibition of fine dark art present a new exhibition of cinema and theatre called Purgatory. Held near halfway to DAMNED and Devil’s Night on May 20-22 2010 in Detroit, Purgatory will present approximately 30 short films of deeply introspective, beautifully disturbing and darkly enlightening subject matters from filmmakers worldwide. This is not an industry-focused horror film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal damnations complimented with live experimental performance art on stage during intermissions. For further information: http://thatdamnedshow.com/purgatory FILMMAKERS!  We are still accepting submissions until April 25th! Click here for further info and to submit. Also, fan us on the Purgatory Facebook Fan Page!

DARK FILM

Director: Craig Ford.
You would be forgiven for thinking that the shooting of Horror Bill was just like any other film shoot. Attention seeking actors, power mad Assistant directors, dodgy equipment. But when the actors start to die in a series of unusual ‘accidents’ we discover there are more sinister things going on here. Who is the Director? Why have only the Assistant Director and the deranged Production assistant met him? What’s really killing off the cast? Are they really accidents? How come the special effects look so good on this small budget horror? The answers to these questions all point to one sinister conclusion….One too terrible to mention here! All we can tell you is that Horror Bill is a very ‘Dark Film’!
