Claustrophobics and agoraphobics, beware! Escape Room is your worst nightmare come true. Insidious 4 director Adam Robitel rounds up a familiar ensemble cast for a psychological thriller with a very unique premise. If you’re looking for chills, thrills and anxiety, here is your chance to see the film in theatres ahead of everyone else.
Think Saw. Think The Cabin in the Woods. Think M. Night Shyamalan’s Devil. And if you think you’ve got the film all figured out, think again.
There is just something cool about watching complete strangers stuck together, everything going wrong, and then solving the mystery of finding out who will survive that is so appealing.
Starring Lost in Space‘s Taylor Russell, The Walking Dead‘s Logan Miller, Insecure‘s Jay Ellis, Daredevil‘s Deborah Ann Woll, and Deadbeat‘s Tyler Labine, Escape Room is such a film. Just when you think you’ve figured out all the clues, there’s an optical illusion to throw you off course.
Nifty, nasty high-concept horror, with dabs of Saw and Final Destination. – Guardian
A welcome addition to the small subgenre of horror films where people don’t act stupidly under extreme duress. – Time Out
The entertainment to be had watching people younger and prettier than yourself being tormented on the big screen will never tire. – Sunday Independent
At the end of the day, Escape Room is a pretty solid horror movie. – Birth.Movies.Death.
Once Escape Room finds its groove, it shines on a number of levels, not the least of which is the thrill of watching people battle nightmarish versions of a traditionally fun activity. – CBR
Escape Room will hit SA theatres on 20th March 2019.
Six adventurous strangers travel to a mysterious building to experience the escape room — a game where players compete to solve a series of puzzles to win $10,000. What starts out as seemingly innocent fun soon turns into a living nightmare as the four men and two women discover each room is an elaborate trap that’s part of a sadistic game of life or death.
