America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given to anyone who does.
Tentatively called "Purge: Island". This movie was filmed in Buffalo, NY and doubled as Staten Island, NY.
It tastes like old man ass
In one scene an uninjured Dolores looks out of Nya's intact apartment window. In the next scene the window is shattered and Dolores' arm appears to have been grazed by a bullet. This jump is not acknowledged nor explained by the story.
SPOILER: The first mid-credits scene is a newscast expressing the success of the Purge, and how as easily as next year, there could be a "nationwide Purge," thus setting the stage for the films set later.
