Historically, January has always been the dumping ground for studios to release less than great films, a lot of those in recent years, however, has been horror films. This new trend has been helping reshape the month of January as a legit month for studios to release low-budget or indie horror films. Escape Room might not set the world on fire but the concept behind it is interesting enough to take a look. Also, the cast is made of young actors viewers may recognize from various Netflix and Hulu series.

Escape Room is now playing at a theater near you.
