The Purge: Anarchy (REVIEW)

Most horror fans remember the announcement and lead up to last years "The Purge". The majority of horror films that have received a theatrical release in the last few years fell into the torture, possession or remake sub genres. "The Purge" seemed to be a breath of fresh air harkening back to the home invasion genre with a twist of political satire. The film received mixed reviews from critics and even the big guys here at Bloody Good Horror. Overall it was entertaining and contained interesting choices mixed with cliches.

The Purge (REVIEW)

The Purge

As a social allegory, “The Purge” is about as subtle as Hulk Hogan being interviewed by Mean Gene Okerlund. This movie slaps you across the face again and again with its statements on class divisions in America, the flaws with our media outlets, and our cultural obsession with violence. Despite this rather large flaw, however, “The Purge” is not a half-bad movie, with a decent plot, and enough suspense to warrant a viewing.
