Writer / Producer / Director
PURGATORIC is an experimental art film from award-winning filmmaker Emma Dark. Shot digitally it has been affected in post production to give it a Super 8mm look and feel. The film explores themes of death, sadness, uncertainty, and ultimately hope. PURGATORIC stars cult film and arts icon Billy Chainsaw, with music by London (UK) based band The Core.
[A] pretty impressive little film, full of strong, gloomy images, with its super 8 looks (rendered in post) only contributing to its overall atmosphere, as does its moody musical score.” - Mike Haberfelner, (re)search my trash
[L]ove the music. I also liked how this had been made to give a retro feeling to the look. It was shot digitally and then during post production altered to make it look like it was filmed on a Super 8. The title and end cards were also really well done, I loved the trippy morphing they did. it just fitted well with the vibe of this.” - Daniel Simmonds, The Rotting Zombie (8*)
