Escape Room is an entertaining mind screw with complex, creative games and mythology that is itching to get explored in future films.
I walked into Escape Room completely blind. As in I hadn’t seen a trailer, and all I knew about it was the basic premise. I watched it more out of a sense of obligation as a thriller and horror fan than because I really wanted to. It’s January, which is typically the month where studios dump movies they have little faith in and therefore I had little faith in this one.
