This is your emergency broadcast system, announcing the commencement of the annual Purge. At the siren, all emergency services will be suspended for 12 hours. Your government thanks you for your participation.”
Hearing that introduction would freak anyone out, or it will be music to their ears. That is what this movie addresses, what happens in those 12 hours. All of America’s rage, hatred, and violence that’s been stored up for a year is released for 12 hours. This movie is going to be great! Or is it? Does it just turn into another run of the mill slasher? Or does it elevate itself into a true thriller…watch my review and find out.
