2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty lousy April 22, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
A psycho escapes from a mental hospital, seeking out the college student he had seen on a tour of the facility earlier in the day. Dominic Purcell is an imposing presence but he isn't used particularly well here--he has barely any dialogue and his part could easily have been played by anyone from the WWF stable. While this movie's premise is solid enough Escapee has some of the worst dialogue ever written by sentient human beings. The scenes between the female detective and her boss are cringe-worthy examples of writing that would earn a failing grade in a Screenwriting 101 class. They're seriously that bad. The movie is a lot better when nobody has any lines. Unfortunately that isn't nearly often enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars OKAY. NOW I'M CREEPED OUT. April 25, 2013
Format:DVD
This film was originally released in 2011 under the title "Escape" and was changed no doubt because of confusion with the C. Thomas Howell film by the same name. This feature opens with the murder of a woman. We see the killer wash his knife and hands. The hands have no blood, then a moment later they do? Plot point or an Ed Wood moment?

Once our criminal is caught and then escapes from a mental hospital 5 years later, the film focuses on three college girls. Abbey (Christine Evangelista) is the main character. She is serious and studious. She looks similar to the ex-girlfriend Harmon (Dominic Purcell) killed. Lynne (Carly Chaikin) is refreshing with personality, a character I wish would have been more utilized. Then there is Renee (Melissa Ordway) our blonde eye candy in bra and panties. In a different way, I wish they had utilized her more.

Yes, our criminal is headed toward Abbey and there is a twist which was rather meaningless. A twist for the sake of having a twist. I enjoyed the banter among the college girls, but the rest of the dialouge was boring. The slasher aspect was off camera. I would recommend watching " The Slumber Party Massacre" instead. A fairly boring slasher film.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs (I recall). No sex or nudity. Near sex.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Review: "Escapee" April 8, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I love a good slasher movie just as much as the next horror fan. The sub-genre is so hit-and-miss these days. For every "Cold Prey" or "Laid to Rest," we're given 10 more entries that leave you feeling mentally drained by the time the credits roll on them. Anchor Bay Entertainment's [...] is just lucky enough to fall right in the middle of good and bad in the realm of watchable mediocrity.

Psychology student Abby Jones (Christine Evangelista) makes the mistake of locking eyes with a murderous patient named Harmon (Dominic Purcell) while on a class trip to the local mental institute. Unfortunately, Abby resembles Harmon's girlfriend that he brutally butchered. He escapes from the hospital and heads out in search of Abby, leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake.

Director / writer Campion Murphy put together the right ingredients for "Escapee." The problem is the formula he concocts is overused. This would be a shocking and suspenseful film had it come out in 1980. The problem is, it's a by-the-book slasher / thriller with nothing to add to the mix. Many of these types of films at least give the viewer a sense of mystery by keeping the killer a secret to the end. Murphy tries to save "Escapee" about three-quarters of the way in with a bit of a twist that comes off as desperate and ill-conceived.

Dominic Purcell ("Prison Break") is perfect in the role of the towering and bulky killer Harmon. Christine Evangelista ("The Joneses") plays Abby with a perfect level of innocence and terror. Carly Chaikin ("Suburgatory") and Melissa Ordway ("90210") are perfect for Abby's stereotypical roommates. One is bratty and boy crazy while the other has a steady man and a decent life to conveniently lose to the killer.

3.0 out of 5 stars No new ground but good performance June 3, 2013
By Viva
Format:DVD
Purcell does a strong job as a frightening, murderous disturbed patient who seeks out a young woman and terrorizes her. No new ground here but compelling acting.
