For those of you who may not be aware of the thrilling fun that is The Purge movies, The Forever Purge is the fifth film in the horror franchise – and was originally meant to conclude the entire dystopian series once and for all. In the action movie, we see that following on from the events of the previous 2016 outing – The Purge: Election Year – the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) have regained control of the US and have reinstated the deadly holiday: The Purge.
However, instead of the Purge rules only lasting the typical 12 hours that we’ve seen in previous entries, this time, crime continues past the ending buzzer, and no one is safe. The Forever Purge is bloody, tense, and tons of fun, and it had a decent box-office run back in 2021; as a result, earning over $77 million worldwide.
And now its success continues as The Forever Purge is in the top ten trending bar on Netflix’s UK platform. The good news is that while it may not be trending everywhere, the film is also available to watch on the streaming service for all US readers as well.
