A group of friends head off to a cabin in the woods for a carefree getaway and… well, you know the rest! It’s a scenario horror fans are quite familiar with, one exemplified by 1981’s The Evil Dead and it’s sequel, Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn. Though the trope became a parody of itself in 2011 meta horror The Cabin in the Woods, it remains popular with (and utilized by) today’s modern filmmakers.
So, what would you do if you found yourself trapped in a haunted cabin in the woods? It’s easy to play armchair-protagonist from the comfort of our sofas, but how would experiencing the terror of your surroundings affect your actions? If you live in Seattle, Washington (or are planning a trip to the region this summer) you may just have the opportunity to find out.
Hourglass Escapes is producing an official Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn escape room! We don’t have a synopsis of the experience, but here’s a bit about the company producing it:
Hourglass Escapes provides real life adventure games in which players are in a room and must use clues and objects they find to solve a mystery or set of puzzles. Each Hourglass Escapes game has a specific set time limit to reach a goal or “escape” from the room or situation. Hourglass Escapes provides a great team building exercise and family friendly fun. It’s basically a 60 min live action movie with you as the star. Each game is a complete story requiring players to solve all challenges in 60 minutes or less. The Hourglass Escapes mission is to deliver a fun, immersive, compelling, and challenging experience for all adventurers.
