Plot: With the rise of a third political party, dubbed the New Founding Fathers of America, a social experiment will take place on Staten Island where, for 12 hours, all crime will be legal. While no one is required to stay, $5000 is offered for each who participates but behind the scenes a more sinister experiment is taking place. -- Chris Kavan

Tries a bit too hard to incorporate current events into a horror film about making all crime legal for 24 hours. In this case, it's held on Staten Island as an experiment - but there is plenty of references and visuals to the alt-right, Trump and other related content that feels pretty much spot on - but still kind of random for a horror film. Its a bit politicized for my enjoyment but I guess if you've watched the other Purge films, this one will satisfy.
