Trivia

After the death of five Polish teenagers, killed by fire in a real-life tragedy which occurred within an escape room in Poland, the release date of the film was pushed back a few months in a number of countries out of respect for the girls who died. See more »

Goofs

The initial teaser puzzle room has a code door, where 4 numbers must be slid into place round a central square. If you look closely, you can see that every movable number (not just the correct ones) is on it's own track, separate from the others. This essentially means the puzzle can be solved without taking into account the clues, as no incorrect numbers can be put on the square's corners. See more »

Quotes

Ben Miller: Where'd she get all the scars?
Amanda Harper: Served in Iraq, asshole.
Ben Miller: Oh, so you've had military experience. So that makes you, like, a... a... psycho... Xena...

Cube did it better, but still fun!
6 January 2019 | by ScorcesioSee all my reviews

The entire movie, all I could think of was Cube and how this movie was definitely inspired by it. The beginning starts off like an eye rolling Netflix B-horror, but it really does get better! Very tense moments and the room concepts are great. You'll have a lot of fun watching!
