» 'Wouldn't it be great if we could get one free murder a year we could get away with?" This is the question director James DeMonaco's wife asked one fateful evening after they were almost killed by a drunk driver. Recounting the event with a chuckle and the safety of hindsight, DeMonaco assures us that his wife, who's a doctor, is actually a very good person and that she just said that in a fit of "anger and emotion". However, he admits the idea was to stick in his head for a long time.
» James DeMonaco's The Purge had every potential to be more than just a good home-invasion thriller. The film is set in 2022, and the concept is that for one night every year all criminal activity is legal, giving the rich and privileged one national hunting holiday to vent their anger through killing, ridding the nation of the poor and homeless. This is quite enough to draw the audience in, wanting to see what more the director can do with this gimmicky high-concept.
