Across three films The Purge has proven to be a surprisingly successful, near-future horror franchise (and it’s even taken on some political satire along the way!). Now it’s headed to the small screen.
The Sundance Film Festival has been the launching pad for more than a few hits, but it’s not often an indie premiere leaves the audience’s skin crawling. At least not until The Eyes of My Mother opened this year.
It’s no easy task expanding a gimmicky (though terrifying!) short film into a feature-length horror pic, but the recent scare-fest Lights Out did one heck of a good job of bringing the fear. So, how’d they do it?
