Trivia

Numerous intricate deleted scenes were shot but cut. One involves a team of five Latino soccer players and their coach attempting the "oven room" of the escape, only to make too many blunt attempts at breaking the game and resulting in their death. Others include a scene of Ben buying liquor, an extended cut of Zoe returning to the scene of the crime with the police, and extended cuts of the various players trying to solve the initial black puzzle box.

User Reviews

 
A fun little thriller.
9 February 2019 | by rustonreviewsSee all my reviews

Drawing influences from Saw (2004), Final Destination (2000), and Cube (1997), Escape Room follows six individuals, all of whom receive a puzzle box prescribing a cryptic note inviting them to the Minos Escape Room Facility. Lured to the facility under the promise of receiving a cash prize of ten thousand dollars, these six strangers must endure several intricately designed puzzle rooms in a thrilling game of life or death. While the premise doesn't exactly scream originality, Escape Room is a perfectly enjoyable little thriller. For those expecting buckets of gore and sickening death scenes, look elsewhere, as Schut and Melnik's screenplay is much more attuned to focusing on the elaborate puzzles themselves, resulting in a film that intrigues rather than disturbs. Pace wise, the film doesn't slow down and is engaging throughout, some of the puzzle rooms are quite visually arresting, and thankfully the characters aren't just one dimensional zeroes either. While the ending does border on nonsensical, Escape Room is a still a fun film that is definitely worth checking out.
