“There was a child went forth every day, And the first object he look’d upon, that object he became.” – Walt Whitman “We come to see ourselves differently as we catch sight of our images in the mirror of the machine.” These opening words to Sherry Turkle’s 1995 book Life on the Screen highlight a […]
Synopsis – Four teen girls diving in a ruined underwater city quickly learn they’ve entered the territory of the deadliest shark species in the claustrophobic labyrinth of submerged caves. My Take – With the massive success of Meg last summer, followed by this year’s Alexandre Aja directed Crawl, it seems like we in for an […]
If you were to make a word cloud out of all the horror tropes which appear in the new movie Ready or Not, the following would have to be in there: A group of evil Satanists. A scary, ornate puzzle box. A devil’s bargain. A dead-by-dawn hunt in a single location, in this case, a […]

Written by J.T. Johnson For any newcomers that might be checking out the “Halloween” series for the first time this year, you might get a little confused once you get into the sequels.

Another year, another Purge Night – on TV, at least. USA just released a teaser trailer for the second season of The Purge. Take a look.
This fall, “what happens on Purge Night doesn’t stay on Purge Night“. Like last year’s highly rated “television event”, Season Two follows a select group of characters through the night. According to USA this season “dives deeper than ever before in to what the Purge world looks like the other 364 days of the year.”
It’ll be interesting if Season Two both follows and reinterprets last season’s format. Season One flashed back to the choices made by characters leading up to Purge Night. I’d love to see this season mix it up a bit, mixing Purge Night events with flashforwards, showing this season’s characters dealing with the consequences in the following days, months after the Purge.
We have no specific premiere date beyond “this fall”, but official images, information, and other goodies can be found at the official Purge USA site, as well as Facebook, Twitter and You Tube. Season Two’s cast includes Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why, Antoine Fisher), Max Martini (Saving Private Ryan, NCIS: Los Angeles), Paola Nuñez ( La Reina del Sur, The Son ), and Joel Allen (Never Goin’ Back).

Until this fall fellow citizens, “Just remember all the good The Purge does.”
