that movie is a little more mature than The Purge: Anarchy - but still from the beginning you may guess what would happen after, even sometimes the plot is irrational

if you think about - how come that 4 people have so big difficulties to find themselves in even very big house - like it could be a castle
from psychological point of view - it is absolutely wrong expect that people wil supress their emotions waiting for one day to be driven by instincts - because to develop really sick brain - it take about 10 years - and it is not like release dogs out of the leash. Even you hide your emotions - has nothing to do with desire to be mad
