Now that you’ve seen The Purge: Anarchy (if you haven’t, minor spoilers will follow), it’s time to discuss where in the hell this crazy ride can go next. Honestly, the options are limitless – James DeMonaco has created a universe that can be revisited yearly, essentially becoming the next Saw franchise. This, of course, is music to the ears of producers, as The Purge was only created on a budget of $2.7 million – and Anarchy wasn’t that much more of a splurge. Imagine a yearly Purge visitation that only expanded a world full of anarchy, chaos, and destruction beyond our wildest dreams.
I’m sure some of you are skeptical, but I’m here to enlighten all those who believe The Purge couldn’t get any more insane. Having no lawful restrictions is only the beginning for this franchise, building a foundation for so many quirky, unique interpretations to stem from. What if an international nation started purging? What if DeMonaco showed us what life is like after purging ends? Ah, I know, you’re all giddy with excitement to learn how The Purge universe has so much more entertainment for viewers to eat up, as we’ve only been handed a serviceable appetizer before the beefier main courses come out way! Or you think I’m insane, and now you’re just continuing to read out of morbid curiosity. Either way, you’re here, and I respect you for it – I’ll spare your life when The Purge becomes a reality.
So, now that I have your attention, let’s explore what hidden directions The Purge can take next, running down 5 horrific scenarios DeMonaco should consider for his next sequel – if it were to happen. Not that I’m looking for a new gig or anything, but if anyone wants to pass these directly to James DeMonaco, I’m looking to get a screenwriting credit someday, and now might not be a bad time!
