The Purge, released in 2013, was a box office hit that was quickly given the green light for a follow up film. Even though I wasn’t a big fan of the first movie, the premise for this future world, where one day a year Americans can “purge”, is intriguing and disturbing, and I hope the second movie The Purge: Anarchy, which opens July 18, goes all out and has just what horror fans want from such a twisted concept. Fingers crossed there are no whiny kids this time.
In addition to the movie, an immersive, horror, escape experience called The Purge: Breakout will travel throughout the United States this summer right before the new movie comes out.
The tour begins in Atlanta on May 30 and will hit Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, and ends in Los Angeles on July 20. For exact dates, visit their site here. Tickets are also on sale now.
