James DeMonaco is back for the 3rd time as writer and director of The Purge, this time with Election Year sadly seems to be set up to be the final movie of the trilogy, hells yea I'm disappointed because even though I tip my hat when they stop with a franchise at its peak before ruining it, I was also looking forward to more anxious filled movies of this series.
Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy every second of it, there’s plenty of awesome killings especially one I’m pretty sure you never see in a movie set in the 21st century, new menacing masks, new inventive moments of madness. All the main characters are surprisingly relatable and not a single one of them is annoying, I actually didn’t want any of them to die.
The Purge Election Year gives me as the first two did, a constant sense of uneasiness while I'm watching it because I literally feel like I'm watching the news, it’s freakishly realistic and no one will never get out of my head that I can totally see this happening in real life.
Yes, you guessed right, if the Purge ever becomes a reality (and if you have read 1984 you know damn well is very possible) I will be locked in a panic room in the attic of my house... I better start some DIY soon, you know, just in case.

If you want to watch another movie that keeps on giving from beginning to end, Green Room would be a good choice.
Still need to see The Neon Demon (Dan's fault), but same as The Purge is one of the most talked about recent flicks, and I'm sure for all the good reasons.
Hush is another must watch if you enjoy the feeling of uneasiness from the comfort of your couch.
Here are the thoughts of The Purge: Election Year from the boys at Mild Fuzz, enjoy!
