Give it a watch
3 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Since it's already been said a few times I'll first mention that Escapee does have a certain Hitchcockian quality to it. Like Psycho, it does a good job of blurring the line between horror and suspense and it has twists that you don't see coming. Having said that, I'd probably liken it more to the earlier Halloween movies and the movies they inspired in that era. It's genuinely scary and fun to watch. Also like those movies, it was shot on a lower budget and contains some flubs that really only add to its appeal.

Bottom line, if you're a fan of this type of movie (see Halloween, Terror Train, Prom Night, etc.), Escapee will not disappoint.
