Try to Survive The First Purge's New Trailer
Witness the bloody origins of an American tradition.
The First Purge is going back to where it all began in the first trailer for the fourth installment of the dystopian horror franchise. As a prequel, this film takes place on the night of the original trial Purge on Staten Island in New York City. The New Founding Fathers of America are seeking to eliminate crime the rest of the year by allowing citizens to "vent" during a 12-hour period of no laws where everything, including murder, is legal. However, it soon becomes apparent that things are not what they seem. It then becomes up to resident William (Y'Lan Noel) to organize the persecuted in order to fight back against the corruption and violence that has been forced on his neighborhood.
"Violence and mayhem spread across the nation when the New Founding Fathers of America test a sociological theory that allows citizens to vent their aggression for one night in an isolated community."
The First Purge is set to release on this year on the 4th of July. What are your thoughts on this latest Purge? Will you be checking it out or do you feel this series is past its prime? Let us know and stay tuned for more horror movie news.
