Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is Escape Room A ‘Saw’ movie?
Escape Room owes everything to Saw, but it’s still slick. If you think you know what Escape Room is about just based on the title, you are right. Directed by Adam Robitel (Insidious: The Last Key), the movie stars six strangers who are invited to play an elite escape room.
2.Is Escape Room based on a book?
This creepy new horror movie might remind you of your last team-building trip. But seeing as the upcoming film portrays a Machiavellian horror narrative about a group of strangers who have to solve a series of puzzles in order to survive, you can rest assured that Escape Room is not based on a true story.
Escape Room ended with a clear setup for a potential sequel, and after earning over $150 million on a $9 million budget, Sony was happy to greenlight one.
Escape Room 2 is finally coming out on January 7, 2022, just three years after the original’s release.
