As all the Christmas films are out the way, many of us will be looking for something new to watch over the weekend.
If you're not too interested in many new releases at the moment, you may want to check out some older releases.
The film has been described as 'the most intense movie they've ever seen' by one fan, but what exactly is it about?
Well, No Escape is a 2015 action thriller directed by John Erick Dowdle and produced by Drew Dowdle, Michael Litvak and David Lancaster.
It features the likes of Owen Wilson, Lake Bell, Pierce Brosnan, Sterling Jerins and Claire Geare.
No Escape tells the story of Jack Dwyer (Wilson) and his wife Annie (Bell), plus their two daughters as they arrive in South Asia for a new life.
But the family quickly realise that the country they have moved to is the middle of political uprising, which leads to armed rebels attacking the hotel they are staying in.
They are ordered to kill any foreigners they encounter, but can Jack find a way to save himself and his family?
The eight-year-old film has been brought up again on the Facebook group Netflix bangers, with one member recommending it to fellow Netflix subscribers to watch.
Many people have commented under the post to express their thoughts on the film, with the word 'intense' thrown around quite a bit.
One person said: "It's definitely a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat!"
A second added: "This was awesome keeps you on the edge of your seat!!! A must see!!!!" as a third said: "This movie is intense. Soooo good."
And a fourth said: "We watched it a few years back, it had us on the edge of our seats for the whole movie! Well worth a watch."
While the Netflix community seem to be reflecting on the film in a positive light, critics were not too kind on No Escape.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the 2015 film sits at a below-par 48 percent, not making it a recommendation from the review aggregate site.
Grantland's review of No Escape read: "No Escape is bare-bones, shameless, and too obnoxious to stay suspenseful for long."
