Scary in the old style Hollywood suspense-thriller tradition!
21 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Escapee, the latest offering from Faith Ford, is awesome! Written and directed by Campion Murphy, Escapee is a non-stop thrill ride. Cinematography adds to the suspense, and helps keep the audience on the edge of their seats...Dominic Purcell is VERY frightening in this film...He portrays the psychotic killer/stalker with such realism that you will leave the theater looking over your shoulder...the rest of the cast, including the lovely Faith Ford, turn in solid performances as well! The refreshing thing about this film is that it is totally scary without resorting to graphic violence, nudity, or foul language. I'd happily recommend this film to ANYONE looking for a good, old fashioned fright fest!
