The title pretty much describes the theme of this suspense tale, which draws several people together to vie for $10,000 by successfully navigating a series of rooms from which – you guessed it – they must escape. Lethal traps await them, and the group’s number of members steadily dwindles as most of them meet unfortunate fates. Included in the ensemble cast are Taylor Russell (“Lost in Space”), Logan Miller (“The Walking Dead”), Deborah Ann Woll (“The Punisher”), Tyler Labine (“New Amsterdam”), Jay Ellis (“Insecure”) and Nik Dodani (“Murphy Brown”). The film made such a big profit on a modest budget, a sequel is now in the works. DVD extras: three “making-of” documentaries; deleted scenes; alternate opening and ending.
