Anyone else seen the new horror film, The Purge?

Seen a trailer and it looks good, I have pre-order my copy on amazon and just wondering is it worth 10.00?

I enjoyed it at the cinema, but personally I probably wouldn't buy it, at least not at full price. I also wouldn't call it a horror movie, it's more of a thriller really, so if you watch it expecting a horror movie you may be disappointed. Don't get me wrong though, it is an enjoyable film.

Thanks for letting me know, I might cancel it then and wait for the price to go down.

So its not a horror then?

No problem I imagine the price will come down fairly quickly for The Purge, especially on DVD, you'd probably be able to pick it up for a fiver in a few months.

It was marketed as a horror movie, but it's more of a home invasion thriller with a slight sci-fi edge. If you want to see a home invasion horror movie I'd recommend 'You're Next' that came out at the cinema a few weeks ago, that's more of an outright horror movie than The Purge (imo) even though they have a similar premise.

Truly, truly awful film. When I saw it at the cinema, I literally had one hand on my bag, ready to walk out. Gave it a few more minutes and managed to stick it out to the end.

It's a shame because it was such a brilliant premise.

I liked it, but it's certainly not a Horror film and I wouldn't pay 10.00 for it.

Rhys Wakefield was the only decent thing in it.

I was really disappointed by it, and it's certainly not a horror film. If it's a home invasion horror you're after check out The Strangers or You're Next.

I agree it was a good thriller but too many of the "why would any sane person do that..." moments.
It was a great concept & I hear a sequel is a possibility.

Great casting I must say.
