Director and writer James DeMonaco (Assault on Precinct 13, The Negotiator) delivers the best and most action-packed Purge yet when The Purge: Election Year, the third chapter in the thrilling franchise, arrives on Digital HD on September 20, 2016 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on October 4, 2016, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. As the government prepares for its annual Purge, the one night a year when all crime is legal, America’s New Founding Fathers are faced with strong opposition from a presidential hopeful and her supporters who wish to abolish the country’s violent tradition. With deleted scenes, a character spotlight, and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, The Purge: Election Year offers viewers a closer look at the disturbing, thought-provoking and timely thriller.

Brian De Palma‘s Snake Eyes with dad was the next order of business. The theater was packed because adults frequented the multiplexes not so long ago. You’re all of 10 years old, Nicolas Cage’s recent output – The Rock, Con Air, and Face/Off — has been terrific, and something seemed off with this new one. You remember leaving the theater not disappointed, but with little to discuss with dad on the ride home. Dad passed away in 2013, long after the Gary Sinise villain era and a few years before »
