EXCL: Gilford on First “PURGE 2” Plot Details


Although horror hitmaker Blumhouse Productions has had their hands full currently with PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES, they’ve also just begun production on their next scheduled sequel, THE PURGE 2. And while, as usual, details have been scant, FANGORIA has gotten some exclusive comments on the film, as well as whether or not we’ll be seeing some familiar faces.

Speaking to FANGORIA for his starring role in next week’s DEVIL’S DUE, Zach Gilford, who also stars in THE PURGE 2, opened up a little about the film’s secretive plot and what to expect in the sequel:

“I really liked THE PURGE. I thought it was cool. With the sequel, I thought they had a really great way to do a sequel because the first one took place in an upscale suburb with what happens to a family there when their security system doesn’t work. With this one, there’s none of the same characters, but it’s the same day of the year and it takes place in the city where there are no security systems and it’s just like a war zone where people are just trying to survive. So I thought it was pretty interesting to take that concept and to look at it from a different angle.”

For more, keep an eye out for the full interview with Gilford on DEVIL’S DUE, THE PURGE 2 and his burgeoning relationship to the horror genre next week.
