If you want to Escape, you need to fight…
Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive first look at Escape, whcih UK readers can pick up on DVD and for download on July 29.
The director and star of the critically acclaimed Cold Prey team up once again for a thrilling, action-packed adventure that marries the best of The Hunger Games and Mad Max as a young girl fights for survival against brutal warriors in a disease-ridden medieval world.
Directed by Roar Uthaug (Cold Prey) and written by Thomas Moldestad (Cold Prey, Cold Prey 2), the pic stars Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Cold Prey, Cold Prey 2, Chernobyl Diaries), Kristian Espedel aka Gaahl (frontman of Gorgoroth, Trelldom and Gaahlskagg).
“Ten years after the Black Plague ravaged their country, a poor family sets out on a journey for a new home. On a remote mountain pass, they are attacked by a band of merciless killers led by the vicious Dagmar (Ingrid Bolsø Berdal) and the only one spared is young Signe (Isabel Christine Andreasen), who is taken hostage. At the gang’s camp she meets fellow kidnap victim Frigg (Milla Olin) and learns that a terrible fate awaits her. There is nothing for it but to escape, but Dagmar will not let Signe go that easily…”
It’s recommended by Eone because, Escape is like The Hunger Games stripped bare – a strong heroine, fast-paced action, awesome archery, but not a love triangle in sight. It’s said to be a beautifully filmed, uncompromising tale of survival-against-the-odds with top performances and stunning scenery that’ll leave you wanting a trip to Norway.
