La Llorona. The Weeping Woman. A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand. The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations. In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain. Now her tears are eternal.

USA’s new show “The Purge” riffs on the horror movie franchise that’s now four movies deep, expanding on its central idea — that one night a year, all crime in America is legal, and participants can “purge” their hate and bad thoughts by murdering and pillaging during that time. The movies take place in the future, in which the Purge has existed for years and become part of American life. It’s not just one horrible night of freedom in which some people unleash their inner psychopaths on their neighbors, coworkers, friends and strangers — it’s also a form of control created by the government.
