So I finally got around to watchingThe Purge. It wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be, but it wasn't good, either. It was ok, and the upcoming sequel, The Purge: Anarchy, looks like it will be a somewhat better film. All I know is that it would really suck ass if we lived in a world that actually did this crap.
The thriller stars Frank Grillo, Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford, Kiele Sanchez, and Keith Stanfield. Here's a synopsis:
The New Founders of America invite you to celebrate your annual right to Purge in The Purge: Anarchy. Returning alongside writer/director/producer James DeMonaco to produce the sequel to 2013's sleeper hit are Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity and Insidious series), alongside Sébastien K. Lemercier (Assault on Precinct 13, Four Lovers) and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay (Pain & Gain, Transformers franchise), Brad Fuller (The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Andrew Form (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th).
The movie comes out on July 18th.
