A few months ago I wrote an article about why Escape Room should become a franchise and now the sequel has officially been announced.
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.
