The Purge (TV Show, 2018 - )
Synopsis: Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse Productions, THE PURGE revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.
Number of Seasons: 0
Critics Consensus: The First Purge should satisfy fans of the franchise and filmgoers in the mood for violent vicarious thrills, even if its subtextual reach exceeds its grasp.
Starring: Y'lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade
Director: Gerard McMurray
Critics Consensus: It isn't particularly subtle, but The Purge: Election Year's blend of potent jolts and timely themes still add up to a nastily effective diversion.
Starring: Frank Grillo, Elizabeth Mitchell, Mykelti Williamson
Director: James DeMonaco
Critics Consensus: Gritty, grisly, and uncommonly ambitious, The Purge: Anarchy represents a slight improvement over its predecessor, but it's still never as smart or resonant as it tries to be.
Starring: Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford
Director: James DeMonaco
The Purge (2013)
Critics Consensus: Half social allegory, half home-invasion thriller, The Purge attempts to make an intelligent point, but ultimately devolves into numbing violence and tired clichés.
Starring: Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane
Director: James DeMonaco
