Oftentimes, escape rooms in the real world are often challenging and fun in so many ways. Despite its gruesome nature, almost all of the psychological thrillers and horror movies that come to mind are still entertaining for spectators.
If escape rooms are your thing, or if you want to study up a bit in case you might one day discover yourself locked in one, then why not take in one of these 10 of the best escape room movies to pass the time.
This is certainly one that everyone would have expected to be included on this list. Since the first film was released in 2004, all of the subsequent entries that followed established a series of horror films that will stand the test of time. In locked environments, the victims wake up isolated, with no recollection of how they got there for starters. It becomes a life-or-dead situation.
Any one of the films in the Saw franchise might be listed on their own here, but the film''s origins must be ignored.
This Ryan Reynolds movie from 2010 focuses on escaping a confined space, but this space is actually a wooden coffin, the smallest area in which someone may be kept against their will. The main character, played by Reynolds, finds himself alive with only a cigarette lighter and a working cell phone, but a dwindling supply of oxygen to breathe. This is because Considering that the film''s location is in the center of an Iraqi desert, it is high enough to match any horror film on this list
Four intellectuals are pushed to a house and eventually into a room with walls that slowly close in as time passes, and this quartet of clever individuals must solve every problem they encounter, each in a matter of minutes. While they are held captive, the four are also racing against time to determine why they are there in the first place.
The movie is well-paced and definitely does its job to keep the viewer hooked on the plot. For a film that was not seen by a large number of people in the United States, a fresh viewing of this one would do very well with those who like riddles, suspense, and all of the other things.
Exam is a British psychological thriller set out in 2009 that pits a room full of job applicants against each other for a mysterious position within a powerful business. Eight individuals are given 80 minutes to answer just one question, but are completely left in the dark about what they actually want. Neither candidate is meeting their competition for the first time in a room with no windows to the outside world.
For a particularly complicated but complicated enigma, the audience is right alongside the main characters. Often, parties involved have no choice but to at least assess the task at hand before transforming the mood into an every-person-for-themselves situation.
This 2005 thriller focuses on seven job applicants who each are attempting to outsmart their fellow applicants without requiring a single answer. Exam, which has a total of seven job hopefuls, does have some interesting similarities to the previous one, which is based on psychological warfare. However, this one only has the audience sitting with a lot of questions that must be addressed first before the root issue can be resolved.
And like Fermats Room, this film was limited exposure to US viewers. However, because of the extraordinary plotline, it should benefit American thrill-seekers who are looking for a movie that is high in time and attention.
Val Kilmer is playing a former professor who decides to take matters into his own hands by holding hostages in a Turkish bathhouse. Their lives are at risk as the professor seeks to learn about global warming or otherwise hell overheat his captives to demonstrate what climates might do to the human body.
The narrative is an interesting way to enthuse attention to an environmental concern that billions of people are constantly aware of as we talk, even for a project that was built over ten years ago. However, it did not do very well by critics and audiences standards. General reviews do not depreciate the cast, but they also do not know the underlying information.
This is a pick that''s probably as expected as Saw is on this list. However, this film is literally about a panic room that must be properly opened if youre the thieves who broke into the house, forcing the houses inhabitants into the room. Jodie Foster and a young Kristen Stewart star in this 2002 film that isn''t a horror or psychological thriller, but yet a suspenseful crime thriller where even the room itself is often considered by audiences as one of the characters.
Developed at a time when real-life panic rooms were prevalent in pop culture, it was well received by moviegoers and critics alike. The film also featured future Oscar winners Forrest Whitaker and Jared Leto as two of the occupants.
On this list, the 2010 film Devil is unique in a similar fashion. This escape room here is not a room, but a floor plan with a small group of people trapped inside. This horror flick is that the devil is actually one of the passengers inside the elevator during the ordeal. That''s more than enough reason to choose being outside this particular elevator than inside.
This movie, which combines a screenplay that derived from an M. Night Shyamalan plot, is played in ways familiar to Shyamalans'' supernatural twist endings, especially since no one except the Devil himself knows who is actually the one from hell.
Cube is a sci-fi horror film set in Canada, where not only one but a massive number of cube-shaped rooms are the focal point of the plot.

It''s the oldest movie on this list, which was created 25 years ago and in all that time the film has gained enormous fame.

This horror thriller consists of an entire workforce of 80 employees who leave their office building in a divisive survival game. According to a mysterious voice, the playing field is clearly larger than a single room. Each player in this sadistic game literally fights for their lives.
