The government-sanctioned crime spree starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey ('Game of Thrones') comes to Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is preparing 'The Purge' for Blu-ray on October 8.

A family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized.

The Blu-ray/DVD/ultraviolet Digital Copy Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and the only supplement will be: Surviving The Night: The Making of The Purge - In this exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette, viewers discover how an act of road rage inspired writer and director James DeMonaco to create The Purge, what attracted the cast to the project and how the world of 2022 depicted in the film mirrors the world today. Featuring exclusive interviews with stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane, Max Burkholder and Edwin Hodge, this featurette asks the question: What would it take for The Purge to become reality?

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
