Flip and see the new The Purge Election Day trailer on the flip…
When it comes to horror films, The Purge has moved up on our list of best horror film franchises, although it is young in the genre, it offers thrills and, yes of course, bloody killings. This time around the Purge is staying political since it’s election year, the title The Purge Election Day is perfectly matched.
It’s a scary thought if the Purge was a real day in America, it would almost SUCK actually, but if Trump gets in office, who knows the bully with the toupee, might just start it. We hope that he loses.
Anyways, as for The Purge Election Day, this time the film seems to up the ante and jump in with both feet. We go from the family viewpoint of trying to hide and be safe only to have their evening turned upside down when a man needs help and the son, does so, unleashing a slew of privileged kids on the hunt to kill the city bums.
In The Purge: Anarchy, we learned that the government created the purge to rid the cities of the poor, the violent, the crazy and all of the section 8 and low-income people in the inner cities. If you are a blue-collar working then the government has a plan to rid you of your life.
It seems the 4 horsemen aka the old white men at the top of the food chain – or as we see it the Trump type billionaires want the cities safe, crime to zero, so unleashing the gang-bangers to roam the cities and kill without consequence is better because they end up killing each other.
In three, the purge is unstoppable and one woman governor wants to end the Purge and go back to before when people were not killing one day a year. The doesn’t sit well with the hierarchy, so they mark her as a target. This movie shows you the politics of how the Purge works and how NOT to go against the grain.
The official synopsis reads:
Two years after choosing not to kill the man who killed his son, former police sergeant Barnes has become head of security for Senator Charlene Roan, the front runner in the next Presidential election due to her vow to eliminate the Purge.
The film stars Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Mykelti Williamson, Joseph Julian Soria, Edwin Hodge and more.
Director and creator James DeMonaco is back to helm his baby and bring it home and on to another hopeful sequel.
We hope there is at least 2 or 3 more Purge films, but that will be decided on how this one ends and does in the box office. However, we hope it goes to 5 with the rebellion winning and killing the self-indulgent men behind the concept of the purge.
Universal and Blumhouse’s cult horror franchise returns this summer with The Purge: Election Year comes out July 1.
