Collapsing the System: After The Infinite Purge:

The actress Ana de la Reguera, who plays Adela, comments that everyone knows the Purge, but that the concept of infinity was novel and brutal; coinciding with this the actress Leven Ramblin, who plays Harper Tucker.

James DeMonaco and Eversrdo Gout’s approach is cool, interesting, unique and different, according to producer Jason Blum. The cast and producers add that this installment is more chilling, because it is the first to be set during the day, making the plot much more traumatic, terrifying and realistic.

They continue explaining how the filming went, recording scenes in English and Spanish with the actors, given that the main characters, Adela and Juan, are immigrants and bilingual. So, they wanted this story to be narrated by a Mexican director, where Everardo showed a lot of enthusiasm and contributed many ideas, according to Jason Blum.

The leading actress Ana de la Reguera points out that this film is scary but also action-oriented, which requires good physical shape and a lot of energy to shoot the sequences, recounting her experience in some of the most complicated and demanding scenes.

The fantastic and creepy wardrobe:

One reason costume designer Leah Butler loves the horror genre is that it allows for some really interesting outfits. And she had to take many factors into account for this installment, because it is the first to be shot during the day. She and the director decided to use an underlying theme that revolves around animals and knives. Alongside this, she states that she loves demon cowboy outfits, confessing that she had to fill the entire wardrobe with blood and dirt.

Lastly, we hope you enjoy shopping for The Purge: Infinite, now available to take home on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD + Blu-Ray, as well as for rent and digital sales; also having a pack with the five films that make up the saga, both on Blu-Ray and on DVD; and so you can see it as many times as you want, both in its original version and dubbed into Spanish.
