Gerard McMurray Discusses ‘The First Purge’

Published

on

The Purge franchise has mostly been met with mixed reviews, but a prequel is on the way as Gerard McMurray directs ‘The First Purge’ which tells the story of America’s first night of chaos.

“Right now we’re living in a time where people are waking up and seeing how things really are and are needing to stand up and voice their opinion,” McMurray said, in an interview with Deadline. “As a filmmaker, showing those images and putting it out there gave me a voice to acknowledge what was going on and bring some awareness and spark dialogue about it.”

The film tackles social issues that are at the forefront of society today.

“We see events that are taking place in this country over the last year. I just tried to use what was going on in the real world and try to bring it into the film. I felt like horror films wrestle with the evils of real life, and that was one of the things I wanted to do with this film. We’re fighting for real injustices [in the film]. I wanted to pay homage [to Black Lives Matter].”

According to the synopsis:

“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.  But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.”

The film arrives on July 4th.

Rob Zombie Aims to Make ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ a Musical

House of 1000 Corpses

Rob Zombie has proven throughout his film career that he likes to be a little eccentric when it comes to his films, and that approach has not wavered since his first hit ‘House of 1000 Corpses’.

Although it’s been 16 years since it first hit theaters back in 2003, Rob Zombie still has plans for the film.

Those plans? Make it into a musical.

“Oh that’s something I would totally consider doing, because it’s something that I think really lends itself to that,” Zombie said, during an interview with MovieWeb. “Because that movie, in particular, is so theatrical and so over the top, that it seems like it would work. Especially these days, where you have everything from Spider-Man, to Beetlejuice, to The Addams Family as a Broadway play.”

While it is certainly something Zombie wants to do, it is not currently in the works.

“I’ve made no moves yet to try and make that happen but it is a backburner thing in my mind all the time.”
