    It’s a movie about escape rooms that literally kill you, and if you’re willing to buy into that premise, it’s about as good as a movie with that premise could probably be. So, hey, 2019 is looking up. show more

    If you've ever watched a Saw movie and wished there was no gore and a few more puzzles to solve then you'll likely enjoy this tropey but fun flick. show more

    A cutthroat little thriller that's surely more fun than most of the riddle-solving lock-ins currently springing up around the country. show more
