Full Promo For The Purge: Anarchy
Frank Grillo wants vengeance

Moved into production swiftly after the success of last year’s low-budget chiller thriller The Purge, the sequel, subtitled Anarchy, put a teaser online last month. Universal and Blumhouse productions have now released the full promo.


Anarchy, like the Purge before it, takes place a bizarre, violent future America where the government comes up with a radical idea to curb crime and social issues. One night a year, all laws are suspended, the emergency services including police, fire and medical are benched and people are free to do exactly what they want for a 12-hour period. 

While maintaining the paranoia levels and still focusing on a relatively small group of characters, the sequel opens the canvas up a little, following what happens when a young couple (Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez) break down outside LA on the worst night possible. Naturally, things turn very dark for them as masked weirdoes haunt their every turn and the violence begins to ramp up. Enter Grillo’s haunted antihero, who had set out during the night of the Purge on a vengeful agenda, but ends up being helpful to Gilford and Sanchez.

With writer/director James DeMonaco back calling the shots, The Purge: Anarchy hits on July 25.
