James DeMonaco Discusses “The Purge” TV Series

Published

on

‘The Purge’ movie franchise is spawning a television series thanks to a collaboration between USA Network and SYFY, and creator James DeMonaco just gave fans an idea of what to expect.

“I’d say it’s 70, 65 percent Purge Night and then 30 percent flashback,” DeMonaco said, according to EW. “We follow four what-seem-to-be separate storylines of people going out on the evening and experiencing the Purge.

The real estate of the 10 hours of the TV allows us to use flashback, where we flashback out of the Purge world, into the regular lives, the non-Purge days, of this future America.

We get to see who these people are when it’s not Purge Night and the events that led them to where they are on the particular Purge night that we are following.”

“The real estate of TV lets us truly analyze why anyone would resort to violence on Purge Night” he continued.

“So, it’s a slower burn. Whereas the movies are kind of a punch in the face — you know, these big events — I think the TV show, with the real estate of it, allows us to truly analyze why anyone would pick up a gun or a knife to solve a problem.

We really get to examine the night, and the intricacies of the evening, and the nuances of the evening, and the different kinds of people who are out on the streets in a way that I just couldn’t do in the movies.”

William Baldwin (Backdraft), Lili Simmons (‘Ray Donovan’), Amanda Warren (‘The Leftovers’), Colin Woodell (Unsane), Hannah Anderson, Lee Tergesen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning), Gabriel Chavarria and Jessica Garza star in the series.

Syfy’s “Deadly Class” Teaser Is Out

Published

on

A new teaser for SyFy’s “Deadly Class” has arrived and it features some very familiar music.

For those diehard horror fans, you’ll recognize Dramarama’s “Anything, Anything”, which was a staple in A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Master. Seeing as the show is set in the 1920s, when A Nightmare On Elm Street was at it’s height of popularity, it seems fitting to make the reference.

“Set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, DEADLY CLASS follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques and his own adolescent uncertainties soon proves to be vital. Based on the best-selling 2014 Image Comics graphic novel, DEADLY CLASS is a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst.”
