Directed by Adam Robitel, the original centered on six strangers who travel to a mysterious building to experience the escape room — a game where players compete to solve a series of puzzles to win $10,000. What starts out as innocent fun soon turns into a living nightmare as the four men and two women discover each room is an elaborate trap that’s part of a sadistic game of life or death.
It sports a 50% over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Escape Room fails to unlock much of the potential in its premise, but what’s left is still tense and thrilling enough to offer a passing diversion for suspense fans.
Escape Room 2 hits theaters on January 7, 2022. For now.
