The combo pack – which includes DVD, Blu-ray and a digital copy – will include the bonus feature…

Surviving The Night: The Making of The Purge: In this exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette, viewers discover how an act of road rage inspired writer and director James DeMonaco to create The Purge, what attracted the cast to the project and how the world of 2022 depicted in the film mirrors the world today. Featuring exclusive interviews with stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane, Max Burkholder and Edwin Hodge, this featurette asks the question: What would it take for The Purge to become reality?

In an America wracked by crime, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity – including murder – is legal.  The police can’t be called.  Hospitals suspend help.  It is one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment.  On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking.

Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey star.
