Every franchisee gets the prequel treatment, and The Purge was no exception to the rule.

Taking you back to the start of Amerca’s greatest new tradition, we see the very beginnings of the Purge. The New Founding Fathers of America initiate their plan and conduct the Purge experiment upon the residents of Staten Island. For 12 hours, all crime is legal, and $5,000 is awarded to anyone who risks staying.

The Cured (2017)

Director: David Freyne
Genre: Drama, Horror | Runtime: 95 Minutes
Cast: Ellen Page, Sam Keely, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Stuart Graham, Paula Malcomson

A refreshing take on the over-populated genre, The Cured failed to captivate the box office but has gained a small cult following in the years proceeding the film. Extremely underrated, The Cured is an excellent zombie-drama that deserves a watch this weekend.

In the years following a zombie plague that ravaged Europe, those who were given a vaccine are now known as “The Cured.” Senan, one of The Cured, reunites with his sister-in-law, Abbie, and his young nephew Cillian. Social issues plague the former zombies, with fears that the Cured, and the remaining infected, locked in captivity, could lead to another outbreak.
