It's not the smartest movie you'll ever watch, but if you're a fan of the horror-thriller genre, this film will keep you fairly entertained even if it won't quite dazzle you with its inventiveness.

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.

Is Escape Room a perfect film? Hardly, but it delivers on what a thriller should deliver on.

Robitel does get credit for laying out an impressive set piece acts one and two that make you eager to play this game again.

I was surprised by how engaged I became in the storyline and like the characters themselves, you'll be wondering what they need to do to escape each room.

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.

Escape Room could be interpreted as a cynical comment on the pursuit of immersion in popular entertainment.

Escape Room is not anything to get terribly excited about. But where suspense is concerned, the premise works: even when the trajectory of the story is easy to predict, there's no knowing what may be hidden behind any specific locked door.

There's nothing remotely new or original about this low-budget horror, but director Adam Robitel and his cast do enough to make it interesting for a while.

Nifty, nasty high-concept horror, with dabs of Saw and Final Destination.

How could it be entertaining and engaging enough to justify watching the game, instead of simply playing it Adam Robitel's slick, good-looking film takes up the challenge, and succeeds to a point.

Each set-piece is pleasingly put together with its own specific soundtrack, and the film leans into the surreal with a slowed-down Petula Clark tune and a sped-up heavy metal number.

A capable cast provides thrills, terror in 'Escape Room.'

Some good ideas, some truly innovative and beautiful production design, and capable performances, though it falls apart at the end.

A fun romp for ninety-minutes and it's one of those enjoyable horror movies that won't leave an impression but is pretty entertaining whilst it's on.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
January 21, 2019
A welcome addition to the small subgenre of horror films where people don't act stupidly under extreme duress.

A tame version of Saw aimed at a younger crowd. It's capable of providing thrills while lacking an original concept. [Full Review in Spanish]
