America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given to anyone who does.
A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
It's been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn...or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.
Despite the fact that this was filmed spherically with ARRI Alexa XT cameras at Codex ARRIRAW 3.4K, "Filmed in Panavision" is listed in the end credits. See more »
When the scene that takes place in the deli after the purge begins happens, the cash register clearly displays a message saying "Good Afternoon" when in fact it is in the very early morning hours. See more »
The movie is an obvious political message with absolutely unreal characters and situations that would never exist in real life.
Innocent minorities that want to help civilians and their blonde female candidate (who is good) VS evil Nazis lead by the REpublican candidate. Pure trash for trash audience. Enough said.
Add to this the fact that the whole premise is stupid and makes no sense - why would anyone stay in the city? - and you get a really dumb cat. d film that should never have made it to theaters. The fact that it did and people actually pay to see it makes me truly sad.
Avoid at all costs, 1/10
