The Silver Bullet ~ The Purge

purge

Synopsis: If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? Over the course of a single night, a family will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home.

Release Date:  May 31, 2013

Thoughts: The summer of 2013 will have its hands full with not one but two home invasion thrillers.  Releasing in August, You‘re Next has emerged from festivals with great advance buzz hinting that it could be a late summer breakout hit.  Starting the summer off though is The Purge which has its own creepy trailer to stake its claim on early scares courtesy of an interesting-sounding set-up rich with opportunity to frighten.  With a first time director at the helm, it’s anyone’s guess as to how this one will pan out but I think the stars may align for a needed nifty jolt of horror.
