See also

In an ongoing segment I'm going to try my best to keep you in the know on what horror films are coming to a theater near you in 2014. First up, The Purge. In case you missed it, Universal Pictures got together with Jason Blum to announce a sequel to the 2013 film. Writer/Director James DeMonaco is back to helm the project.

The original film told the story of a family terrorized by their own neighbors on the one night a year deemed legal by the government's "new founding fathers" to be violent. While the film did not receive the warmest reviews, it was only made for a modest three million yet brought in over ninety million dollars worldwide.

Actors Frank Grillo (in the lead role), Carmen Ejogo, Michael K. Williams, Zoe Borde, and Kiele Sanchez round out the cast. Principle photography is currently underway at Blumhouse Productions In Los Angeles. The film is due out for release on June 20, 2014.
