Escape The Scaffold

“We're not friends. We used to be friends. We were only friends because we were in the same place at the same time.​”

A dark wild psychological thriller. A love triangle turns to betrayal as real life becomes a nightmare. The basement is slowly filling with water and there's a monster in the house.

"A descent into a hallucinatory nightmare"
