Here's Where You Can Stream Escape The Field Online

TikTok's "Corn Kid," Tariq, may have an affinity for the "big lump with knobs," but not everyone thinks the food is such a beautiful thing. Oftentimes, cornfields are used as a terrifying setting in horror flicks. See, for example, 2011's "Husk," or the 1984 Stephen King adaptation "Children of the Corn." And who could forget the scene in 2009's "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" in which a stressful chase between Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ginny (Bonnie Wright), and the Death Eaters unfolds in the Weasley's cornfield?

This desolate backdrop is used once again in "Escape the Field," which was released in theaters in May 2022. Directed by Emerson Moore, the film follows Tyler (Theo Rossi), Sam (Jordan Claire Robbins), Denise (Elena Juatco), and three other strangers who wake up in a remote, seemingly-endless cornfield. Think "The Maze Runner" meets King's "In the Tall Grass."

These six individuals have no idea how they arrived at the field, or why they're there. The film becomes increasingly scary, suspenseful, and psychologically challenging as they try to discover clues and figure out what the random items they've been given mean. These objects include a compass, canteen, single-bullet gun, and knife.

In an interview with Film Threat, Moore hinted that all of the answers are in the movie, provided you have a keen eye. "They're in the film if you look," he said. "You'll figure it out pretty quick. Pay attention to what Denise is saying. She's gonna tell you exactly why they're there."

Thankfully, for those who missed "Escape the Field" in theaters but want to play detective for 89 minutes, there are still several ways to view the film.

Escape the Field can be viewed on most video-on-demand platforms

It's been several months since "Escape the Field" was released, but don't worry – there are still a number of ways to get your creepy cornfield fix. According to the movie's official page, "Escape the Field" can be watched digitally via Prime Video, YouTube, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft, Redbox, and Apple TV. At the time of this writing, it's available to either purchase ($10.99) or rent ($5.99). One can also get a physical DVD or Blu-ray by heading to Best Buy, Amazon, or Target.

While watching "Escape the Field," it's worth noting that it was shot in an actual cornfield, which was located on the outskirts of Toronto, in September 2020. Star Theo Rossi told The Invention of Dreams that, since this was during the peak of the pandemic, the crew was made up of only a few people, adding to the location's desolate ambiance. For the actor, who's best known for his portrayal of fan-favorite character Juice on "Sons of Anarchy," it was exciting to see how Emerson Moore and his team adapted to the situation.

Rossi understands that, thanks to the ever-growing list of material available via streaming, it's impossible for viewers to watch everything. Their time is precious, and he doesn't want any of his projects to waste it. As he told The Invention of Dreams, "How do I make those [lines] resonate with the person who's giving me their time to watch it? How do I not do them a disservice? So, I'm always thinking about the person who's working all day, who has paid for whatever the streamer ... I have to give them everything."
