At this point in your life you've likely experienced one of those escape room attractions, in which you're locked in a themed room and given one hour to find hidden clues that will help you unlock the door before time runs out. But what if the stakes were real? What if your life depended on getting out of that room in time? That's the premise of the upcoming horror movie Escape Room, from Insidious: The Last Key director Adam Robitel.
The psychological thriller follows six strangers — including Insecure's Jay Ellis and Daredevil's Deborah Ann Woll — who are lured into an immersive, high-tech, deadly escape room with the promise of a $1 million prize if they can get out of the property alive. Gradually, and horrifyingly, they discover their wits are the only things standing between them and things like: being cooked alive, freezing to death in an icy pond, and nightmarish hallucinations.
Sounds fun, right? Watch the trailer above before it hits theatres in January.
