About the film
Director: Adam Robitel
Actors: Deborah Ann Woll, Jay Ellis, Logan Miller, Nik Dodani, Taylor Russell, Tyler LabineSix 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 participants discover each room is an elaborate trap.
Let the games begin: firstly, the plush waiting room actually morphs into the first challenge, threatening to burn the players alive; the next throws them into a picturesque winter wonderland where — wouldn’t you know — the ice starts to melt and crack. And the third space is the best of all: a huge bar with a pool table and gigantic juke box (playing a slowed-down version of Petula Clark’s ‘Downtown’ on loop) that is revealed to be upside down, the floor/ceiling falling away to reveal a deadly drop.
It's a kind of crazy Crystal Maze for grown-ups.
