From the director of House of the Witch, comes Alex Merkin’s next film. NO ESCAPE ROOM is about
A father and daughter check out a small town escape room and discover there is something sinister about the place.
When an escape room attraction turns from a fun bonding activity to a dangerous paranormal experience, a father and daughter must flee from an angry spirit.
Premiering October 6th on SYFY for the start of 31 Days of Halloween. No Escape Room includes Jeni Ross, Mark Ghanimḕ, Brianna Barnes, Hamza Haq and Dennis Andres. It was also produced with the help of MarVista Entertainment.
We messaged Alex himself, and he had this statement to say
“I’d say I’m really proud of the film. It feels different (in a good way) from the more classic horror movies you tend see this time of year.
Its kind of a Psychological Horror film if that makes sense. We wanted to play with the idea that this house where the Escape Room is set up has a unique history to it, built and designed around the turn of the century by a man obsessed with the idea of bridging this world with the afterlife.
The house itself is filled with all these crazy inventions and this elaborate clockwork beneath its walls, all intended to boost or amplify a connection to the paranormal. But at the same time, its unclear if what we’re experiencing in the house is truly paranormal, or just a bunch of really intense and somewhat extreme parlor tricks set up by the creators of the Escape Room itself.
Its obviously always difficult to take on a project this ambitious in the very short amount of time we had to film it and for this kind of budget but I’m really proud of the final product and I can’t wait to share it with you all” – Alex Merkin
