The trailer for The Purge makes the film look like a glossy John Carpenter film that is a hybrid of Assault on Precinct 13 and Panic Room.
I love the trailer for the The Purge because I have a fascination with films that dwell on isolation, characters fighting against an unseen enemy as well as apocalyptic settings.
Something at the back of my mind is trying to keep me from being excited about this film and I wish I knew why.
Given the country’s overcrowded prisons, the U.S. government begins to allow 12-hour periods of time in which all illegal activity is legal. During one of these free-for-alls, a family must protect themselves from a home invasion.
The Purge is written and directed by James DeMonaco and stars Lena Headey, Ethan Hawke and Edwin Hodge
