Seeing their father kill himself as kids has left its toll on Vincent (Gary Cairns) and Michael (Luke Albright), but they have since found a way to cope with it: Making salvation their family business, and thus Vincent has become a priest, while Michael drives their van through the neighbourhood which also serves them as a confessional, and Vincent's also reading masses in tents. They make their living via donations from the souls they save and seem to just get by. So far so unspectacular - but it should also be noted that Vincent's also very quick in dealing out "the Lord's punishment", meaning he cold-bloodedly kills all those who confess to stealingright there in the confessional - and that's where they make their big money. Now Michael isn't really ok with that, he's against violence and dreams of a future with waitress Ruby (Sylvia Grace Crim), his sort-of girlfriend (since Vincent won't let him have an actual girlfriend), but he's also weak, he does love his brother, and the two hold a creature in the basement he's very much attached to. Enter Mary (Trista Robinson), a regular nutcase with a violent temper but a bright mind, who's quick to notice the dangerous game the brothers are playing - and she wants in. And while Vincent and Michael don't feel they really need a partner, she makes herself useful a couple of times (in a very lethal manner), that they really can't refuse her offer. But Mary is a girl who has it in her blood to stir up things, so she soon seduces Vincent to get on his good side, kills Ruby because Vincent fears she will estrange Michael - but ultimately she wants to make off with the brothers' savings. And all that is more than enough to lead to an explosive finale ...


What Purgatory Road is most of all is fun, very dark fun maybe, but fun still: Storywise it meanders between crime thriller, serialkiller flick and horror movie, but does so in a very coherent and well-structured way, and the fact that pretty much all the main characters are from the dark or at least grey end of the spectrum only adds charm to the proceedings. Now couple that with a subtle yet effective directorial effort and an uniformly strong cast, and you're left with a pretty good piece of genre entertainment!
