I have to confess getting a tiny bit excited for The Purge: Anarchy.
And why not? While the predecessor wasn't exactly a modern classic, it was tension filled, well-acted and had a great premise.
In The Purge 2, the premise is still very much intact - one day of the year all crime is legal - while the fictional world is much grander. If The Purge had the look and claustrophobic feel of a home invasion slasher pic à la The Strangers, the sequel goes for some dystopian, paranoia-filled Escape From New York flavors.
Taste them in the two new clips below:
