Three groups of people intertwine and are left stranded in the streets on Purge Night, trying to survive the chaos and violence that occurs.
“The Purge: Anarchy” is a 2014 American action-horror movie directed and written by James DeMonaco. The film is the sequel to the 2013 movie “The Purge” and takes place in a dystopian future America where for one night a year, all crime is legal, including murder.
The movie follows five different people who are stranded on the streets during the annual Purge, including a couple who are out on the streets trying to get home, a mother and daughter who are targeted by a group of Purgers, a man seeking revenge against the man who killed his son, and a man who is trying to save his friend from being captured by the government.
The film has a darker and grittier tone than its predecessor, with more action and violence.
