Iris is a woman who struggles with constant flashbacks to a tragic accident from her youth. When she was a child, Iris had convinced her friends to enter an abandoned insane asylum in order to film a homemade horror movie.
One wrong turn in the asylum led to the children getting trapped inside for the entire night, scarring them for the rest of their lives. Now as adults, they are forced to confront their past in order to overcome the malevolent being that haunts their minds.
As Iris digs deeper into the asylum’s twisted history of botched lobotomies and torture chambers, she discovers that in order for her to move on, she must go back to the asylum, and into the depths of hell.
The Purgation trailer starts off subtle and suspenseful, then abruptly turns dark and intense. As kids, they take a pleasure trip to an abandoned insane asylum that turns into a night of survival. As adults, the terrifying memories still haunt them.
The Purgation is filled with darkness, madness, insanity, and evil entities. Seems like the adults are stuck in between the realms of reality, imagination, and insanity. Their memories and imaginations play dangerous tricks on them.
Hidden within the walls of the abandoned asylum in The Purgation is like the stories of many abandoned buildings with dark pasts: mystery, secrets, and depravity. An evil nurse that wrecked havoc within the asylum. The film taps into the dark world of the supernatural.
The Purgation releases on VOD on August 16, 2016.
