The “Purge” films began in 2013 as a dystopian gonzo action fantasy set in a crazy city (we’re approaching a decade of high-spirited fun!). The New Founding Fathers of America, the ominous ruling party that institutes the Purge as a way to let off steam — but, really, as a way to control the masses, who have one night a year in which they can commit any crime, including murder, without legal ramifications, was always a pop political dimension to the series. The fact that the Purgers aren’t permitted to touch any NFFA members is a dead giveaway that this tightly regulated night of chaos is actually just a nasty game of rats-in-a-maze compliance. The “Purge” flicks started out with a bang.
That brings us to “The Forever Purge,” the series’ fifth and final chapter. The idea of a gruesome exploitation ride based on the terrifying voyeuristic delight of seeing people murder one other for fun should have worn out its welcome by now. Instead, it’s increasing popularity. “The Forever Purge” is set in Texas, a state that prides itself on having developed the concept of a law consisting solely of a man, his weapons, and nothing else. Until now, the show has led us to believe that the Purge is a city-wide phenomenon, including all those people of densely populated epicenters with their bottled-up fury. However, the idea of a “Purge” picture remade as a twisted Western action thriller intrigues me. IMDB
