Sanity Slips Away in The Purgation Trailer

Posted on: July 21st, 2016

A creepy new trailer has landed for Osiris Entertainment’s indie horror offering, The Purgation. The supernatural flick, which won the Best Feature award at last year’s LA Independent Artist Festival, is written, produced and directed by Elaine Chu. It marks the directorial debut for Chu, who performed second assistant director duties on Richard Bates Jr.’s awesome Excision.

Here’s the synopsis:
PurgationPosterEver since she was a little girl, Iris has aspired to be a filmmaker. For the last five years though, she’s been stuck in television, directing episodes for an investigative series that’s barely able to compete with Ghost Hunters. Iris sees her big chance to prove herself when her boss sends her on assignment to her hometown of Black Falls, a town harboring an abandoned insane asylum with a dark history of excessive shock therapy. Filming inside the asylum brings back childhood memories for Iris – memories of sneaking into the Black Falls Asylum to shoot homemade horror movies with her friends. Little does she know, her life is about to imitate her art…

A release date for The Purgation has remained elusive since its festival screenings over a year ago, but US audiences can see the film when it drops on VOD on August 16th. In the meantime, check out the trailer and these two stills.
