For a limited time only, you have the chance to escape the evil dead before they swallow your soul in the first officially licensed live video escape room, granted by Studiocanal S.A.S., based on Sam Raimi’s classic horror-comedy Evil Dead 2: DEAD BY DAWN™.

What is a live video escape room? According to Thomas Parslow at https://livevideoescaperooms.com/about/Live Video Escape Rooms are a new way to play Escape Rooms with your friends from the comfort and safety of your own home. Guide a host via live video to explore, solve puzzles, and uncover mysteries. Gather a team as your friends join via video link from their homes.”

We have taken our hit escape room and made it so people can play with their group from the safety of their homes.” said Wolfson. “People will book the game online, then using streaming meeting technology to be able to control the game facilitator as their avatar in the game.” He explained. “It is like a first person video game but with live people, and it is designed for a 3 to 6 player group. The best part is the players can be in 6 different homes anywhere in the world as long as they have a good WiFi connection

When players enter that all-to-familiar cabin in the woods, they will have until dawn (or 70 minutes, whichever comes first) to find the Kandarian dagger and destroy the book of the dead before the evil dead swallows their souls. Fans of the classic film can expect deadites, chainsaws, a very strange deer head, a chained-up cellar door, and plenty of horrifying surprises. With appearances by Twin Peaks own Andrea Hays, and Yuri Lowenthal who is known for his voice acting as Peter Parker/Spiderman in both video games and animation.

We are designing it to emulate the already existing escape room game but as an event.” Wolfson explained. “ We will have cinematic elements, drink ideas,snack recommendations and even a drinking game option. We want players to forget about the world and its issues for a while and enjoy a night with their friends and family.” 

The Original Evil Dead 2: DEAD BY DAWN™ Live Video Escape Room opens in May of 2020 and will be a scary and fun experience appropriate for ages 13 and up. Visit the official site for more details and tickets.
