“How do you survive against an island full of stronger, faster, deadlier versions of your previous self?” FS is exclusively debuting the official trailer for an indie horror film titled Island Escape, the latest feature from director Bruce Wemple. While Island Escape is at its core a horror film filled with monsters and gore, it combines several other genres such as sci-fi, action, and romance, to keep you guessing every step of the way. After a mysterious accident at a research camp on the Isle of Gran Manan, a CEO hires a team of blue collar mercenaries to extract his daughter, a scientist at the camp. Upon arrival the team soon learns that not only is the island surrounded by a wormhole that causes time to reset every three days, it’s also crawling with monsters. As they learn more about the nature of time, space and the creatures haunting them on the island, they realize that death may be the easiest way to escape. Island Escape stars Ariella Mastroianni, James Liddell, Grant Schumacher, and Chris Cimperman. The trailer reveals the big twist about the monsters they’re fighting on this island – but how will they defeat them? Available to watch in early August.
