Sequel to the hit 2013 film The Purge , this one’s a horror-thriller directed and written by James DeMonaco. The concept is pretty vexing: The Purge is an annual event where all crimes become legal for 12 hours and all emergency services are shut down. On the night of the Purge, a man (Frank Grillo) sets out to get vengeance from the man who killed his son, but is compelled to assist a mother and daughter who were taken from their home as well as a couple left stranded on the highway in surviving that one bizarre night.
