Despite the height of horror season being over for about a whole month now doesn’t mean Hollywood won’t release any more films until the next August-October season. There are plenty of horror films coming out during the rest of this year and next. One of those films is the new movie called Escape Room that’s coming out in January of 2019. With escape rooms becoming popular places for friends to go and hang out to have fun much like a bowling alley it’s no surprise that someone would turn it into a horror movie. An escape room is a place that allows guests to go inside a room they lock on the outside and the guests have to find clues in order to get out; sometimes guests even have to race against a set time.
This makes a perfect setting for a horror film. Six strangers enter one of these seemingly harmless rooms for some fun only to find out the room is a lot more dangerous than it appears. They have to rush against times and insane traps like the room heating up like the inside of an oven. Together the strangers work to survive but learn that each of them was chosen for a reason to be in that room, however, why they were chosen and who chose them to be in their sick game remains a mystery. This new film has the setup of a Saw movie, but lets' hope it’s different enough to not be boring and predictable.
