    Trailer: Is “THE PURGE” high concept home invasion?

    The latest from cinema’s low budget genre machine Blumhouse (SINISTER, INSIDIOUS) is predicated on a fascinating idea—the seeming extreme of “necessary evil” rationalization—which is one night a year in a now very peaceful America, all crime is legal.

    Newborn Dead: “REMOTE” access
