As of late, I can’t help but keep touting how much Blumhouse Productions have contributed to the horror genre in this decade alone. In addition to thrilling audiences with new franchises such as Insidious and Ouija, they impressed me with Sinister, which is easily my favorite horror flick of the past ten years or so.
Second to Bughuul’s family oriented hijinx – at least in my book – is that of The Purge, a concept that shows us what it’d be like if all crime were legal for one night out of the year. And while I did think the first movie in the series was a decent watch, it was the two sequels that followed that really captured my attention. I mean, not only were they intense nail-biters of the highest order, but the subtext provided was something not to be ignored.
So, now that we’re all hyped for the upcoming release of The First Purge (July 4) after the memorable first teaser trailer dropped just days ago, one could say there’s no time like the present to binge the previous films in the series. Really, it’s highly recommended that you catch up even though the next entry into the franchise is a prequel.
Luckily, they can all be purchased in one fell swoop on Blu-ray thanks to The Purge: 3-Movie Collection. I mean, not only does the set contain The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy and The Purge: Election Year, but Amazon is currently offering the complete package for only $18.90.
