Trivia

Numerous intricate deleted scenes were shot but cut. One involves a team of five Latino soccer players and their coach attempting the "oven room" of the escape, only to make too many blunt attempts at breaking the game and resulting in their death. Others include a scene of Ben buying liquor, an extended cut of Zoe returning to the scene of the crime with the police, and extended cuts of the various players trying to solve the initial black puzzle box.

Goofs

When speaking with her roommate in the dorm room, Zoey pronounces Leonhard Euler's surname as "YOU-ler" rather than "OY-ler", a name any physicist or mathematician or student of those fields would know very well. See more »

A disaster of an ending
1 February 2019 | by dynamiteheaddy-43387See all my reviews

Starts off fairly strong with interesting escape rooms but there comes a point in the third act where the movie just goes badly down hill with one of the worst endings in recent memory. They are clearly trying to set up a franchise with the sequel bait but with an ending this weak and unoriginal I can't see anyone wanting to watch it, The film isn't clever and doesn't have a decent twist to save it. Its just a rip off Saw (minus the gore) probably in the hope they can make more money. It's a shame because there are some enjoyable parts but expect any future films to go straight to DVD.
