President Trump: Has anyone seen the movie The Purge?
Aide: Oh dear God
I think everyone is fairly nervous that should the election continue the way it is, the above tweet could prove eerily prophetic. Which is why it's not all that surprising that The Purge: Election Year is capitalizing like a mofo on current political climate. And the new trailer just takes it all the way, with a combination of unsettling testimonial and traditional narrative, that is both effective, and well...
Damn near terrifying.
The Purge series has been a truly unusual horror series, in that it's been getting better with each installment. So at this rate, Election Year promises to be a hell of a ride, only helped by (most of) our soul-shaking panic at the outcome of the actual 2016 election.
Watch the new trailer below, and just in case... We might as well go ahead and start printing up these stickers now. Supply and demand, you know.
Will you be "Purging" this year?
