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.

Rating 3.0 Actually enjoyed this Movie Lover: from LOS ANGELES, CA US -- May, 25, 2006

just goes to show what can be done on a shoestring budget--or even half a shoestring budget. Don't expect too much, and it may surprise you, too.

I'll prob'ly watch this again a coupla times. Often looks good, sorta gamey--but that fits with the suggested cross-plane reality bending. Pointless gunfights and car chases balanced with pointed plot. Kinda different and surprisingly likable. Certainly worth 5 bucks (to anyone with more than 50).

It's kinda like a school project that turned out much better than expected--apparently, even by it's cast and creator(s)(judging from the interviews and commentary in the "Special Features").
