Jigsaw's latest disciple hardly gets the job done
11 February 2018 | by zerohead133See all my reviews

As the title of the movie suggests and the boxart hint at, the movie is about a group of friends who participate in an Escape Room, an activity where a person/people are tasked with solving a series of puzzles before the time limit runs out. Of course, it turns deadly, but not any more interesting or thrilling.

As I mentioned, this has Saw rip-off written all over it. That doesn't automatically disqualify it from being good. It's nowhere near as bad as anything from the Asylum or Video Brinquedo, but it's hardly up to snuff. The characters aren't cliched, in fact they don't have any real characteristics. There are only two in the cast with any actual acting chops,were Annabelle Stephenson who plays a decent ice queen and Evan William's smart guy who slowly becomes more unraveled. Not at all Oscar-worthy performances, but not really Razzie material, either. There is some decent gore in the few scenes that it actually happens, but that's really all the movie has going for it. The games don't even have the philosophical weight or complexity to them like the Saw movies. It's worth a watch and it's mercifully short, 80 minutes.
