Film Review: 'the Purge: Election Year'

The setting is a presidential race in America, pitting corporate greed (buoyed by no less than the NRA) against a populist uprising by the people. I may have just described the wacky election cycle of the United States of 2016, or the disturbingly violent, fictionalized setting of The Purge’s America in 2025.

    Director James DeMonaco, writer and election Year appears to have gotten a slight change of view. With its quick turn around sequel The Purge: Anarchy only a year after and The Purge in 2013, DeMonaco directed a tight theory: the base inclinations of exploitation film and a hint of social commentary to support lots of graphical vision.

  • The Purge: Election Year Trailer
    I'm looking forward to seeing this film. I saw the first two and both were rentals, and at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios the Purge opening was nutty insane running into the park towards people with prop chain saws, people popping out of hiding places -- it was terrifying and fun.
