Synopsis

College student Zoey (Taylor Russell) is advised to "try doing one thing that scares you" during a break from school. When she receives a black box anonymously through the mail, with a card that invites her to win a million dollars by being "the first to escape the most immersive room yet,” she reluctantly goes to the address on the card.

When she gets there, she finds five other people, all of whom also received a cube with directions. The room where they meet turns out to be the escape room, which quickly heats to over 400 Fahrenheit. They must use their wits to find the clues and escape.

As they enter room after room, they discover that the game is real and they're in danger of being killed if they don't think quickly. They also discover why each of them was chosen. Canadian Connection  Canadian Connection: Actors Taylor Russell and Tyler Labine were born and raised in Canada.

  • 3 stars "More a thriller than horror... was entertaining for a rainy day"
  • 5 stars "I loved escape room not too scary but not too boring"
  • 2 stars "Escape Room manages that difficult trick of taking a group of boring characters with obvious overstated purposes in a seen it before plot line with a highly predictable resolution AND somehow create suspense and tension. An exciting Fahrenheit 451 beginning. Is almost immediately undercut by a protracted adventure in a marina like winter world. And in an almost no that we’ve lost your attention effort the rest of the movie becomes Less about discovering and more about getting throug it so that the movie can let us know we have been set up in an escape room from the get go. Attempting to surprise us with a twist the movie begins anew telling us the story it really wants to tell about greed and powerlessness and conspiracy. And it is here we learn that no one ever escapes as we are set up to return to the theatre for escape room 2. The second floor or some other I’ll aptly named sequel. We are pawns in corporate greed attempting to trap us in yet another mediocre horror franchise. Don’t buy the ticket."
