Plot:
Six strangers suddenly awaken in a remote, endless cornfield. Stripped of their possessions, they are left with only six items: a gun with a single bullet, matches, a lantern, a knife, a compass, and a flask of water.

As mysterious sirens blare in the distance and traps appear at every turn, the group realizes it’s been plunged into a cat-and-mouse game with an unseen evil, and survival depends upon solving a diabolical — and deadly — puzzle…

” …Escape the Field is as frustrating as it is entertaining. It’s well shot, has a score that helps drive the film, and features some excellent performances from the mostly familiar cast. The film’s fights and chases are all well-staged as well. And while that managed to keep me interested, it couldn’t get rid of the feeling that I’d seen it all before.” 3/5 Voices from the Balcony
