Runtime: 105 minutes
MPAA Rating: R
Netflix (US): No
Jump Scares: 9 (0 major, 9 minor)
Jump Scare Rating: Much like the second movie in the franchise, The Purge: Election Year plays out more like an action/thriller than horror movie. The jump scares are less pronounced than in either of the previous movies and occur mainly in the middle third of the film.
