Purgatory Reviews:

Tanya Roberts tries to break gratis from her typecast photo that stemmed from her infamous one-season stint on the highly successful "CHARLIE'S ANGELS" series and her turn as the game role in the atrociously terrible camp classic, "SHEENA, QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE".In "PURGATORY", Tanya Roberts is Carly. She and her greatest mate Melanie are vacationing in South Africa and create the fatal mistake of picking up a 'hunky' hitch-hiker in their jeep who turns out to be nothing more than a filthy drug runner. When their jeep is stopped at a military checkpoint run by an outfit of South African units officers, the hitch-hiker tries to create a run for it but is gunned down in a Sunflower field. As a result, his bag is searched by the officers who explore a reasonable amount of drugs and naturally, Carly and Melanie are arrested despite their pleas that they had nothing to do with this.So into the filthy slammer Carly and Melanie go. As two naive westerners, their situation is fed to the dogs and they are sentenced to a life sentence inside a female prison where they are sexually molested by prison guards and treated as outcasts by the 'local' prison inmates. Naturally, Tanya Roberts uses her 'sexuality' to test to receive them out of this intense and hopeless case as she makes moves to seduce the Warden of the female prison in order to purchase a ticket out for their freedom."PURGATORY" comes off more as a sleazy exploitation flick rather than something dramatically serious that you should now trust might have happened in true life. From the 'hosing down' sessions within the prison walls to the countless sex scenes we receive to witness shared between Tanya Roberts and the Warden, this movie finds its zone among another cinematic gems such as "THE CONCRETE JUNGLE" and "THE BIG DOLL HOUSE".While no one can really take this film seriously, most boys will search the eye candy gratuitously supplied by Tanya Roberts enough to suffice their appetites. Girls could look elsewhere."PURGATORY" is a relatively difficult film to catch sight of these days - but if you do happen to see this on your TV Tutorial or search a dusty copy on video at your local store, give it a gander... it's now cute funny.My Rating - 6 out of 10


Pick almost any "Women In Prison" film where some young lovelies are unjustly thrown behind bars and then abused by the warden, the guards, the another prisoners....That's this movie. Still, it has a young, lovely and long-legged Tanya Roberts as one of the hapless prisoners. There's a tiny bit of nudity here and there, and a lot of explosions at the end. You've seen it before.


Despite the initial set-up (2 American women in a foreign - here African - country receive arrested and sentenced to 11 years in jail for a crime they didn't commit), "Purgatory" is not really a Women-In-Prison film. It almost fully ignores the everyday prison life of the girls and focuses on one aspect only: their sexual exploitation. The warden has set up a prostitution ring and the prisoners are used to satisfy the needs of many high-paying customers. After 75 mins of this repellent junk, we finally receive to the escape part. "Purgatory" supposedly has serious intentions: there are even game cards saying us what date it is, and at the end other card saying us what happened to the surviving characters, as if this was based on a real story, even though at the end of the credits there is the usual "any similarity to true persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental" disclaimer. But it is technically rough, even amateurish at times, and although Tanya Roberts deserves credit for taking on a role that has her appear fully unglamorous, she's still too limited an actress to carry a film by herself.
