I wanted to like it, REALLY, I did, but in the end, it just had too much going against it.

The premise was great - mortal sinners are stuck on Earth after they die, in many cases reliving what they are most ashamed of. Brett is of the other class of spirits - This class of spirits has 24 hours to make amends for their most grievous sins. This is also the class that most of the others in the world fall into.

The writing was OK, as well as the plot. Some things seemed illogical, or impotant plot points occurred with no ides what led up to them. However, when it came to putting it on the screen, there were some major problems. Continuity was one thing that bothered me. I don't know if they intentionally did that to push the supernatural aspects of the plot, or it was just poor filming and editing.

All-in-all, it was a movie that was worth watching on Amazon, since I have Prime and didn't pay to see it, but if I had payed to rent or own it, I might not have done so.

I'm not an indie horror fan at all. But once in a while I take a chance. Purification was a pleasant surprise! Kept me guessing from beginning to the end. Well done!

I just read on imdb that Joseph Ciminera who played Bret & directed this movie has his own cooking show on PBS which I thought was cool.Anyways, Talk about weird, Purification was a weird movie.I felt like I was watching an episode of The Twilight Zone (A 1 hour & 23 minutes episode) for mostly all of the movie then at the very end, It seemed to go religious on me.I don't know if Purification was suppose to be a horror flick, a movie with a hidden message or a horror movie with a hidden message (Maybe somebody can explain it to me) The best thing about Purification was Joeseph Ciminera's character Bret.He played a straight up D-Bag A-Hole & he played it well.He's a guy you LOVE to HATE.I don't know if this is a movie that's worth taking a looking at but I do know if this is a movie you do take a look at, You won't be looking at it more than once

This is amateurish slow, lame and predictable. Don't waste your time. I couldn't make it through the whole thing. If you can make it through the first 30 minutes, you're a trooper. More proof that too many people who make movies either don't care or simply don't have talent.

Bret Fitzpatrick is a self-absorbed businessman who is thrust into a nightmarish realm between dreams and reality, where the demons of his past return to haunt him. Director Joe Ciminera ushers in the JACOB'S LADDER of Independent cinema in PURIFICATION, a redemption tale that bends the edges of reality. PURIFICATION is a fresh step up in terms of originality as the director looks to find hope and meaning amongst the horror. Ciminera stands out against the rest of the cast with an strong performance in the lead. The same cannot be said for many of the side characters, unfortunately, who either overact or underplay their respective roles. While the overall theme becomes quite apparent from the very beginning, PURIFICATION lacks a steady sense of continuity between events to drive the narrative. It often feels disjointed and incidental as a result, although this can add to the dream logic of the plot. With some revision and reworking, PURIFICATION could stand to be a much more powerful viewing experience, but the underlying themes of crime and redemption are enough to carry the audience through to the film's climactic ending.

I watched most of it, but gave up. Didn't make any sense, and I'm a 'B' movie buff.
