Escapee is a 2011 mystery thriller film written and directed by Campion Murphy.
On a class field trip to a mental hospital, psychology major Abby Jones (Evangelista) has a disturbing meeting with a dangerous patient, Harmon Jaxon (Purcell). Later on, she studies with her two roommates unaware of the dark impact she had in him. As the weather turns stormy, Harmon works his way towards Abby.
Abby and her roommate Lynn (Chaikin) receive a visit from Carter Thomas (Elrod), the neighbor who is a police officer, who warns them about a local voyeur preying on locals. He assures them that he is close by and as long as that they should keep their curtains closed and doors locked.
Meanwhile, Harmon works his way towards them slowly and methodically for a showdown between them.

Due to not receiving domestic theatrical distribution, few critics reviewed the film. From BZ Film:
There are movies that can simply be put into “forgettable” category. ESCAPEE falls right in there. Supposedly ESCAPEE was based on true events that took place in one of the producer's hometown of Alexandria, Louisiana. Maybe so, however this doesn’t make this film any different, as one has to really think hard and work even harder to make a serial killer movie worth watching.
The film was released on DVD/Blu-ray disc through Starz/Anchor Bay in the United States on April 16, 2013.
