Arrested while committing larceny, Ilyong is mercilessly shot by police. At the morgue, his body is the object of Violet’s strange trafficking.

After our discovery of filmmaker Khavn’s movies in previous editions  (Alipato, Ruined Heart), here’s a new bomb from the Philippines. The sumptuous Purgatoryo is the latest folly from producer (Cuchera, Nuwebe) and director  (Children's Show, Tuos the Mystic) "Derick" Cabrido, a rising star of South East Asian cinema. Or when genre movies can be at once social, intelligent, original and damned efficient.
