An unbalanced priest is a key figure in PURGATORY ROAD, the new film from confrontational Australian filmmaker Mark Savage (MARAUDERS, STRESSED TO KILL). We’ve got the exclusive first look at the new teaser trailer as well as the latest poster.
Savage scripted the Mississippi-set PURGATORY ROAD with Tom Parnell; the cast is headed by Gary Cairns, Luke Albright and Trista Robinson, and the special effects were created by Marcus Koch and Cat Bernier (WE ARE STILL HERE, MOHAWK). The synopsis: “Helpless to stop a thief from stealing his father’s modest nest egg, a little boy grows up blaming himself for his parents’ suicide. Becoming a priest [Cairns] who operates a highway confessional with his ambivalent brother [Albright], he offers sage advice to chosen sinners while raining death on unrepentant thieves. Into the world of this antagonistic duo comes a psychotic, resourceful woman [Robinson] whose first act of ‘kindness’ is to kill a thief whose actions threaten to expose the holy duo. Filled with gratitude for this act, the priest invites the woman into their sacred world and begins a chain of bloody events that dismantle the brothers’ decades-long partnership.”
