The subtlety of the Purge franchise ended with
the decision to release an installment called The Purge: Election Year
during an actual election year. Even set in an alternate/future America, there are
clear parallels and commentary in each release of the horror film franchise,
and The Forever Purge may be the most transparent of the series. With a conservative
portion of the population deciding to refuse to follow the established rules of
the system in a violent insurrection, it doesn’t take a genius to make the connection
to the post-election Capital riots.
