Description by OLDIES.com:
Life couldn't possibly be worse for Gordon (Mark Redfield) after he is fired, loses his house and gets dumped by his wife - until he wrecks his car and finds himself in an otherworldly purgatory. Once there, he is attacked by fanatic Shadowmen who lead an army of tortured souls known as the Ragmen. Gordon is rescued by a daring and motley band of freedom fighters - a handful of warriors from different periods in history who had lost their lives in noble sacrifice. Gordon joins the fearless group on a wild adventure through surreal, nightmarish landscapes. They must defeat the Despiser, a monstrous evil being who reigns supreme in this God-abandoned world that exists someplace north of Hell and south of Heaven. Fighting to redeem their souls, the warriors' quest leads them to a forbidding fortress where their fates will be decided.
This original and imaginative work of adventure, horror and fantasy from writer/director Philip Cook features explosive action, extraordinary effects and a macabre vision of an apocalyptic afterlife.
When Gordon (Mark Redfield) dies after wrecking his car in a horrible accident, he wakes up in a very surreal purgatory. Once there, he is attacked by a band of tortured souls and is rescued by a noble crew of freedom fighters. Together they move on to begin a battle to the finish against an evil ruler called the DESPISER. The goal: to get to heaven as fast and safe as possible.
