In retrospect, it's actually kind of surprising that there hasn't been an escape room-themed horror movie until now. The popular interactive mystery games are kind of mini films. There's a built-in set, stakes, opportunities for conflict and teamwork and a logical start and finish. The rooms look like discarded Nine Inch Nails music video sets (not exactly a criticism). The stakes are $10,000 or death, which seem far too low and too high. Anyone already interested in the idea of an escape room that tries to kill you probably isn't expecting all that much out of this anyway.
