The Purge Survive The Night | A Constantly Racing Mind

The Purge ~ Banner-0001  | A Constantly Racing Mind

I like films about dystopian futures, especially if they start out as some sort of Utopia that devolves into some sort of Shirley Jackson "The Lottery" type of messed up world. In "The Purge," the Democratic Republic is gone and the  New Founding Fathers of America,are now in power and have turned the United States into a strictly enforced martial law perfect civilization.  A sort of self regulated Darwinian government that culls out the weak and socially unwanted. 

"If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In The Purge, a speculative thriller that follows one family over the course of a single night, four people will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home."

"The Purge" is produced by Blumhouse Productions, who in the past few years, have brought the world of cinematic horror, films such as "The Lords Of Salem," "Dark Skies," "Sinister," "Insidious," and the "Paranormal Activity" franchise.

"The Purge, " stars Ethan Hawke ("Sinister") and Lena Headey ("Dredd") and is distributed by Universal Pictures ~ opens June 7th 2013
