There’s a horror movie called Escape Room coming out in October (with Ghostface!)


There’s an escape room movie coming to a theater near you.

Earlier this year, Sony Pictures bought a movie pitch about an escape room and not much else was known about it.

Now more details have emerged – filming has wrapped up in May, further details around the plot have been released and a teaser trailer can be found on Youtube.

The plot involves Brice (played by Skeet Ulrich aka. Ghostface from Scream), who owns an escape room in Los Angeles. He’s not getting enough press about his escape room and goes looking for a prop to help his business stand out from the rest.

In an old shop, he asks for something “special” and is introduced to The Skull Box, which is described by the shopkeeper as one of the most cursed objects in the world.

Four friends are the next group to enter Brice’s escape room where they find The Skull Box sitting on a shelf and a paid actor chained to the wall. But something goes terribly wrong … and the friends have under an hour to solve the puzzles and get out of the room.

To help promote the film before its release, an escape room game for mobile devices will be launched during August.

The film’s final release date is still pending but there’s indications the film could be released around October/Halloween this year.

Will you watch the Escape Room movie?

    Oh my. After just learning about ‘extreme haunts’ and the damage they’re doing to the haunt industry, I fear this could be the same thing for escape rooms :/

      Some of the extreme haunts out there are super freaky. I’m curious to see how well this movie gets promoted and watch how it impacts on the industry – especially interesting to see how it might affect escape rooms in LA. 😛
