Last weekend, the Ethan Hawke thriller The Purge defied its low budget and made a killing at the box office. This, of course, means that now a sequel is already in development. And while I would normally scoff at this opportunistic kind of behavior on the part of the movie execs, in this case, I say good on them.
The film ended kind of abruptly and was actually pretty short. I could have watched another half hour to get a little more information, so a second film is definitely not out of the question. The movie took place on a single night -- the annual "purge" -- on which all the violence in society is allowed to happen.
Medics and emergency personnel are suspended while people are murdered in the street, and the next day, things return to normal and society returns to its low rate of crime. Creepy, right? But it ended abruptly after the night and so we didn't see the aftermath. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. Here were some loose ends that need a sequel:
