Universal Studios Hollywood's premier Halloween event, "Halloween Horror Nights," continues to unlock the terror that torments movie-goers with the announcement of two new original scare-zones: The Purge, based on Universal Pictures' summer blockbuster and upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release, and Universal Studios Home Entertainment's Blu-ray, DVD and Digital debut of Curse of Chucky, an all-new movie where Chucky returns to horrify viewers in the latest unrated chapter of the blood-soaked suspense saga. "Halloween Horror Nights" begins on Friday, September 20, 2013.

The provocative box-office blockbuster, The Purge, will come to life as "The Purge: Survive the Night." As guests enter the theme park, they will be thrust into the depraved world of The Purge, a sordid tale »
Following a very successful opening weekend at the box office, Universal Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to The Purge. Jason Blum is returning to produce the follow-up, although no cast members have been confirmed.
The sequel has already gotten conditional approval for a $2.25 million tax credit through California's Film and Television Tax Credit program. However, in order to secure this credit, shooting must begin by the end of this year, at the latest, and the production must meet several other requirements.
The Purge starred Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey as parents in a gated community who try to survive the annual event known as The Purge, where all crime is legal for a 12-hour period. James DeMonaco wrote and directed this thriller, but it isn't known if he will return to the helm.
The Purge was produced on a budget of just $3 million, so, with a $2.25 million credit waiting in the wings, »
As we reported yesterday, Universal Pictures' The Purge is a hit with audiences at the box office, taking in an impressive $36.3 million in its opening weekend. A big part of this success is star Ethan Hawke and producer Jason Blum, who teamed up last year for the horror film Sinister. Ethan Hawke plays James Sandin in The Purge, a father and husband whose world is upended when criminals invade his gated community during the one night out of the year that every crime is fully legal. Todd Gilchrist sat down with the star and producer recently, and you can see what they both had to say in our exclusive video interview.
The Purge was released June 7th, 2013 and stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, Adelaide Kane, Edwin Hodge, Rhys Wakefield, Tony Oller, Arija Bareikis. The film is directed by James DeMonaco. »

That old horror-movie standard, a homestead besieged by psychos, gets remixed with a bit of Occupy-era class-conflict satire in the disappointing future-set thriller “The Purge.” Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey are interestingly cast, slightly against type, as a smug couple defending their family against murderous intruders on the one night of the year when any crime, even murder, gets a free pass. But while writer-helmer James DeMonaco’s scenario echoes the fiction of J.G. Ballard and even “The Hunger Games,” the film’s thudding shocks and predictability dull its edge. “Purge” took a not-so cathartic $1.5 million over the weekend in Blighty; it looks to do proportionally modest biz when it opens Stateside on Friday.
It’s the year 2022, and some very wacky regime with a religious agenda (given how often the authorities mention God) has taken control of America. Starting on March 22, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., anyone can »
