When horror movies meet reality, we are there to contemplate it..
There were lots of ‘purge’ stories making the round on Google. The word was trending since the Baltimore bedlam began.. that is because groups of teens, we are told, were posting signs saying that there would be a ‘purge’ on Monday night. We saw the riots that developed. The BALTIMORE SUN reports about how cops think the purge notion and plans came straight from the horror movie.
This is not the first time the term purge has been in the news. In 2014, several ‘purge’ fears were prevalent after rumors circulated in cities across American of similar plans for violence, without any materializing.
This time in Baltimore, perhaps, as opposed to the past ‘purge’ meme warnings, violence did materialize. But to blame a movie? Perhaps this is just a chance for the media to drum up more fear over the summer of hell that may be coming..
