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.
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one suspect: John Kramer, the man known as Jigsaw, who has been dead for over 10 years.

A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
This horror/action-adventure film from director Gerard McMurray serves as a prequel that recounts events that led up to the first Purge event. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community.
Tentatively called "Purge: Island". This movie was filmed in Buffalo, NY and doubled as Staten Island, NY. See more »
In one scene an uninjured Dolores looks out of Nya's intact apartment window. In the next scene the window is shattered and Dolores' arm appears to have been grazed by a bullet. This jump is explained by the deleted scene included in the Blu-ray release: Skeletor was hiding in Nya's apartment (hence the "fresh" blood Dolores notices on the floor), inside the closet. When he jumps out and tries to kill Nya, there's a confrontation between him and Isaiah, which leads to Skeletor flying through the window. See more »
But - having lived on Staten Island for 35 years and worked on Staten Island, and having patrolled Park Hill quite often - I found it pretty entertaining. Whoever wrote this must know Park Hill (even though it wasn't actually filmed on Staten Island). Stupid political sight gags tying the NFFA to Donald Trump. Lazy writing. Dopey, overall.
