America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given to anyone who does.
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one suspect: John Kramer, the man known as Jigsaw, who has been dead for over 10 years.

A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
This horror/action-adventure film from director Gerard McMurray serves as a prequel that recounts events that led up to the first Purge event. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community.

Staten Island covers roughly 60 square miles. Most of the African Americans and Latinos live in a narrow strip near the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. The film, however, shows them running around all areas of the island, including some areas which are MILES away from their homes. See more »

Honestly the film was absolute rubbish. Stereotypical characters. No humour. Terrible action. Atrocious acting. Regressive political messages shoved in your face throughout, eg: EVERY 'bad' or 'evil' character being white - often shown with nazi-esque uniform, KKK uniform, black-face w/ red lips versus the 'good' black gangsters in "the hood."
Don't waste your money or your time. Regularly go to the cinema and this is the first time I've felt inclined to sign up on IMDB specifically to review/comment.
