A new clip is available for the upcoming horror/suspense film Escape the Field. The latest from Lionsgate studios, the film is set to be released at the beginning of May.
The film stars Shane West (Gotham, Salem, ER), Theo Rossi (True Story, Luke Cage), Jordan Claire Robbins (The Umbrella Academy), Tahirah Sharif (The Haunting of Bly Manor, Waterloo Road), Julian Feder (A Boy Called Po), and Elena Juatco (Schitt’s Creek, Jann).
The movie tells the story of six strangers who awake in the middle of a cornfield. They find their possessions taken from them, and are left with six items: a gun with a single bullet, matches, a lantern, a knife, a compass, and a flask of water. They’ll have to navigate deadly puzzles along the way while having to contend with an invisible evil force.
This movie seems like a cross between the Saw franchise and Children of the Corn from the description. The latest clip that’s been released is filled with tension right from the start. Clearly, there’s already conflict among this ragtag group that’s been thrown together. There’s a sense of either betrayal or disunity in the group.
The suspense is immediately apparent in this clip. Setting a horror movie in a cornfield may feel like an overplayed trope, but it can be an incredibly effective one. There are few more horrifying settings than in the middle of a seemingly unending maze, with no way out and to those unprepared, having a difficult time finding their way out.
The focal point of this clip is a character named Denise. She’s clearly in trouble, and whatever other quarrels the group may be having quickly take a back seat to the impending doom it seems like they will all face.
