CIRCA 1930: A homicide detective (Tom Sizemore) is summoned to a remote mental hospital to witness the death-bed confession of a mysterious Civil War soldier who will have him believing in the supernatural.
Inspired by the feel of the Golden Age of Hollywood, IMPURATUS captures the sense of what a horror film like this would have been like back in the day:
Having just quit the force, homicide detective Clayton Douglas (Tom Sizemore) follows one last hunch. Instead of going home, a garbled phone call earlier in the day has him going to the monstrous mental hospital in the middle of nowhere. Once there he's quickly met by Dr. Heysinger (Robert Miano) and we learn about the disturbed Civil War soldier Daniel Glassman (Jody Quigley) in the basement.
Clayton has no idea who Glassman is. Why did Glassman ask for the detective by name? Why did he request to see the detective on this specific day? Who is Daniel Glassman? As Dr. Heysinger unseals the strange typed confession and reads, we are transported back to 1862 to witness the horrific events that led to this very day.
IMPURATUS is a back to basics horror mystery that feels like reading a scary novel next to a fireplace on a winter's night. This film noir throwback was filmed in the mental hospital in Pennsylvania and will have you guessing all the way to the end.
