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.
Actor Rotimi Paul rode the New York City public subway to his audition for the role of Skeletor in full costume makeup.
Skeletor's purge is on
When the ATM Thief is breaking into the ATM, Skeletor comes up behind him, and scares him, causing him to turn around to face Skeletor before he stabs him in the chest. When the Purge Organizers are reviewing the footage of "The First Purge of the evening," the footage shows Skeletor stabbing the thief from the side, before he has the chance to turn around.
In the theatrical release, there was a second mid-credits scene, which was an ad for The Purge (2018) on the USA Network. This does not exist on the DVD/Blu-ray home video version.
