Would horror lovers enjoy this film?
Probably not unfortunately. Escape Room shows people going through a lot of suffering, which is quite standard in horrors, but there isn’t anything else that is scary in the film. Other than the aspect of “it would suck to be in that situation” then there is literally no horror. There is a slight twist towards the end of the film, but when comparing this movie to films such as Saw (where characters are in similar situations of entrapment) then it really has no content behind it. We would definitely say that if you are a horror addict then you can probably go without seeing this film. It won’t keep you up at night that is for sure.
