No Escape Looks Promising
"A social media personality travels with his friends to Moscow to capture new content for his successful VLOG. Always pushing the limits and catering to a growing audience, they enter a cold world of mystery, excess, and danger. Directed by Will Wernick Starring: Keegan Allen, Holland Roden, Ronen Rubinstein, No Escape releases on-demand and on digital platforms on September 18th."
This film was initially released internationally as Follow Me (not sure why they changed it); for sure, there is not really much new here. Escape Room and SAW mixed together for our viewing pleasure. What is interesting is that it looks like a well-made film. There are some pretty gorgeous shots in this trailer and some real unnerving set pieces. It made me uncomfortable to watch, and that is hard to do anymore after years of films like this being released. The horror of social media influencers alone is terrifying enough, add-in impossible traps that they have to try and escape? I think I am sold. No Escape will release on September 18th on demand and on VOD digital platforms.
