Sequel to The Binge
Hey guys, who do you think you're gonna murder during The Purge this year? Meanwhile, Dan argues for greater creativity in purge-crime, Elliott introduces "Spoiler Alert Rod Serling," and Stuart makes us all uncomfortable with his sudden surge in the perv ratings.

Movie Summary[]


During the annual Purge, Ethan Hawke's fortress-like mansion is literally besieged by a roving gang of murderous preppies.


In an America ravaged by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government sanctions an annual 12-hour period during which all criminal activity–including murder–is legal. James Sandin and his family face the ultimate test when an intruder drags the vicious outside world into their home. James, Mary and their two children struggle to survive the night while trying not to turn into monsters like the ones they are striving to avoid.

­They're all wearing masks that have big, smiley faces. Not like Smiley—they don't look like a fat man's belly.
