I am ashamed at how late to the party I am to this one but it's still pretty cool! Minnesota got a subtle mention in 2013 horror flick The Purge.

I absolutely love scary movies and am not sure why it took me so long to watch this one but I finally did. In case you've never seen it, the movie follows a family for a 12-hour period where any and all crime in legal across the country. They call this "the purge" and anything goes.

What does Minnesota have to do with it? Within the first few minutes of the film, there's a montage of "the purge" happening across different cities in the United States. One of the cities is none other than Rochester.

It's interesting and a little random. Even though we are known for being really nice in Minnesota, apparently we aren't too nice in whatever world this movie takes place in! The clip was just a few seconds long and just fictional, of course but it was enough to creep me out a little bit.
