The Forever Purge Trailer Breaks All the LawsBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
The fifth and final Purge(unless it makes good money) is set to hit theaters on July 4th, and we have the new trailer. Like with most Blumhouse films, little has been released about the latest entry in the franchise. Blumhouse is notorious for keeping details on films secret for as long as possible. But we have the new press release and the synopsis is as follows:
‘When members of an underground movement, no longer satisfied with one annual night of anarchy and murder, decide to overtake America through an unending campaign of mayhem and massacre, no one is safe.’
Adela (Ana de la Reguera) and her husband Juan (Tenoch Huerta) live in Texas, where Juan is working as a ranch hand for the wealthy Tucker family. Juan impresses the Tucker patriarch, Caleb (Will Patton), but that fuels the jealous anger of Caleb’s son, Dylan (Josh Lucas). On the morning after The Purge, a masked gang of killers attacks the Tucker family, forcing both families to band together and fight back as the country spirals into chaos and the United States begins to disintegrate around them.
The Forever Purge is written by franchise creators James DeMonaco and Everardo Gout. It is the fifth film in the franchise that launched in 2013 with The Purge starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. The film invited audiences into a chilling world where, on one night a year, all crime is legal, and the social ramifications of that night of anarchy. The franchise also includes a series spin-off.
I was a fan of the first two, but the third has turned me completely off by its heavy-handed political attitude. Horror films have always balanced the line between political/cultural lines, but movies like this do the complete opposite. Instead of holding a mirror, we can reflect on, these kinds of movies divide and promotes even more hatred and division among people. When you alienate half of your fan base, you are going in the wrong direction. Hopefully, they have learned from the last 2 films and returned to their roots. Here is the latest teaser trailer for the upcoming movie.
