The Purge is a 2013 American science fiction action thriller horror film written and directed by James DeMonaco. It stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane and Max Burkholder. It is the first installment in DeMonaco's The Purge (film series).
Despite mixed reviews, the film grossed $89,328,627 during its run, far surpassing its $3 million budget. The film was turned into a scare zone for 2014's annualHalloween Horror Nights due to its success. A sequel, titled The Purge: Anarchy, was released worldwide on July 18, 2014.
In the future, a wealthy family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized.
In the near-future year of 2022 in the United States, all political movements have been shut down by the government, which runs under a strict totalitarian rule from the "New Founding Fathers of America." The unemployment and crime rate have fallen to only 1%, and the economy is at an all time high. After the 28th constitutional amendment was ratified, the Annual "Purge" Event was created. The Purge is an event that occurs every year from 7:00 PM on March 21st to 7:00 AM on March 22nd, of which during that time, any known crime (i.e. murder, rape, breaking and entering, etc.) is legal, and all services (i.e. police, fire department, hospitals and emergency rooms, etc.) are closed. It is said to act as a catharsis for the citizens; in reality, it is used as a method of artificial population control, as the poorer and homeless people are the main targets.
