YOU’RE INVITED TO PLAY FOR YOUR LIFE.
Six people who don’t know each other participate in a game where they can win $10,000 if they break out of an escape room. The escape room trend gets its own movie adaptation and obviously this game turns out to be an actual life-or-death challenge, elaborately orchestrated by people who remain unseen. More of a thriller than a horror movie, but its concept is awfully similar to that of the Saw movies. Still, exciting for a long time, offering a set of intriguing escape rooms… until it gets too dumb in the end.
