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]

It's a fairly intriguing premise that is, at the outset, employed to better-than-expected effect by filmmaker Adam Robitel...

It's an incredibly watchable and mostly satisfying experience, although it's one that you'll probably forget about four or five hours after you leave the theater.

I felt that this film from Adam Robitel was a lot better than his other films like Insidious: The Last Key.

It's so much fun that the payoff is ultimately a convoluted disappointment, but I can hardly complain considering how many times I gasped or cringed or whispered "yesss" throughout the rest of it.

At the end of the day Escape Room is a pretty solid horror movie.
January 7, 2019
A diet version of the Saw franchise: PG-13, modestly inventive, fun rather than gruesome, with a few characters who are even likable.

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.

It's a fun movie and a good way to spend 100 minutes and so you should go see it.

...there is an inventiveness to this whole endeavor that makes Escape Room fun to watch.

There is no escaping in Escape Room This psychological horror thriller will keep you thrilled and at the edge-of-your seat.

It's not a good movie, but it's far from the worst. For an early January release, that's a win.

A cutthroat little thriller that's surely more fun than most of the riddle-solving lock-ins currently springing up around the country.
January 5, 2019
For this being the first release of 2019, there's a lot of fun to appreciate ---considering if you run out of the theater before the epilogue.

It's very easy to compare this film to the 'Saw' franchise or the movie 'Cube'. However, 'Escape Room' does make a name for itself.

January 4, 2019
Just the kind of escapist cinema one might be seeking at the start of the year.
January 4, 2019
Robitel bucks the typical tropes of a low-budget PG-13 horror by taking focus away from trying to scare us at every turn and, instead, putting it on the elaborately staged puzzles and booby-trapped rooms
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Succeeds in unlocking raw, primal human fear and adrenaline.

January 4, 2019
The fast pace and abundance of energy sweeps you up, provided you are willing to submit yourself to the crazy concept.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Escape Room is an entertainingly cheesy and surprisingly innovative B-movie, but suffers when it turns its attention to setting up future sequels.
