QUICK TAKE:
Suspense/Thriller: Six strangers sign on to participate in an escape room challenge only to find themselves in various life and death situations.
PLOT:
Six strangers have received invitations to participate in an escape room challenge where the winner will receive $10,000 as the group uses a variety of clues and their own smarts and intuition to "escape" from some carefully conceived and constructed room scenarios.

Those players are Zoey Davis (TAYLOR RUSSELL), a smart but timid student; Ben Miller (LOGAN MILLER), who many likely view as a loser; and Amanda Harper (DEBORAH ANN WOLL), an army veteran suffering from PTSD. There's also financial hotshot Jason Walker (JAY ELLIS); blue-collar truck driver Mike Nolan (TYLER LABINE) and video game geek and escape room junkie Danny Khan (NIK DODANI) who informs the others about how the game is played.

And it starts right away, with all finding themselves trapped in a large reception area that grows hotter and hotter by the minute as the forced-together strangers try to figure out how to escape before they collapse from heat exhaustion.

They barely manage to succeed, but end up in another scenario where they eventually realize that the unseen game master, WooTan Yu (YORICK VAN WAGENINGEN), isn't playing games. From that point on, they must do what they can to survive.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those into escape room entertainment might be enticed, while the younger (but not kid) cast might draw in some kids as well.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For terror/perilous action, violence, some suggestive material and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
