Escape Room manages to lock into current social trends and exploits the anxiety that could potentially surround them, delivering a largely exhilarating ride that feels quite different within its genre.
These films work a treat when they are nasty, brutish, short and utterly aware of their own stupidities. Escape Room, despite some impressive design and few decent visual flourishes, ticks none of the boxes.
The superb, stranglehold direction of Adam Robitel draws you in early and never lets go, even after you think things have been resolved...a prime example of the economics of the horror genre. Serve the genre's fanbase and the world is yours.
