Escape Room Movie directed by Will Wernick set to premiere in Seattle

Escape Room is set to premiere at the 43rd Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) this weekend.

Here’s the back story for the movie: To celebrate Tyler’s 30th birthday, his girlfriend Christen has booked an escape room to celebrate.

The six players walk into the room but the puzzles become deadly. Soon the players realise it’s not a game and they need to win.

Otherwise it’s game over.
 
 
The festival’s website describes the movie as “the latest underground party craze, escape rooms”.
 
And the same site shares this piece of dialogue from the movie – “Fuck this puzzle!” cries out one of the frustrated players in the face of certain death.
 
 
There’s two movie screenings in Seattle with tickets costing $14 USD per person.
Friday June 9th, 9:30pm – 805 E Pine Street, Seattle
Saturday June 10th, 9:30pm – 600 Pine Street, Seattle
 
Bonus: The director Will Wernick will be attending both screenings.

There’s also no movie trailer for this Escape Room movie online yet.
 
 

Escape Room
Director: Will Wernick
Tagline: Six friends test their intelligence in a game that takes a dark turn.

Nintendo x SCRAP: Legend of Zelda Escape Game – Defenders of the Triforce comes to USA

Defend the Darkness: Find the Master Sword.

Your adventure begins now.

The upcoming Legend of Zelda escape game involves golden triangles which grant wishes (also known as the Triforce). The Triforce was hidden away until the evil king, Ganondorf stole the artifact for himself and now a darkness is spreading throughout the land known as Hyrule.

 

Players will be known as Defenders of the Triforce and must find the Master Sword to save the kingdom alongside Princess Zelda. But you don’t need to be a huge Zelda fan to enjoy SCRAP’s newest escape game.

The escape game will have teams of six working towards solving the Triforce mystery under a tight deadline. The event description sounds familiar to traditional SCRAP events – a large space where multiple teams can participate in the event and each team has an assigned table to work at – see their FAQ response below.

 

“No, this is NOT a traditional escape room (i.e. locked inside a room). It is a fully hosted, story-based escape event designed for puzzle fans and fans of the Zelda franchise. There will be multiple teams in the event space all participating at the same time, and each team will have their own table to work at when not exploring.” – scrapzelda.com

Defenders of the Triforce will visit eight US cities starting on January 31st, visiting San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego before moving to Phoenix, Arizona. Ticket information for Seattle, Houston, Chicago and New York will be released in late January 2017.

Fighting off zombies in Fight of the Living Dead: Experiment 88 – Youtube series

fight_of_the_living_dead

DON’T. GET. BITTEN.

Fight of the Living Dead puts contestants into a zombie reality series, that’s part scripted and unscripted.

Over three days, the contestants are left in an abandoned hospital where they must survive the zombie horde spread out through the building. Contestants need to avoid being “bitten” by actors dressed as zombies and get through challenges that determine the overall winner.

In season one, there were six episodes and the whole series can be watched in an hour.

Now the series is back for season two, with ten new contestants, sixty cameras and two hundred zombies to avoid this time.

The team at Alpine Labs spent several months developing the plot of the series including fake character back stories, news clippings and evidence that the contestants discover as they progress through the hospital.

According to episode one the plot revolves around, CONOPs Industries which started in 1950 with the aim to create the perfect biological soldier. The result was the necrotic bioform – a species similar to a zombie. These bioforms could reanimate, follow commands, behave without emotions and can fall into different types of zombie classification: Type I, Type II and Type III which has a special super gene.

Kevin Abrams, from Alpine Labs also has this to say about escape rooms right now (from Mashable) – “Kids are looking for something that looks tangible,” Abrams said of the popularity of escape rooms. “With this experience, you can see how you can do under pressure, you can work with teams and friends. It reminds people of what they are capable of doing: testing their brain and physical acumen.”
