Escape Room Movie Story

Six people with different backgrounds are given a puzzle cube. After solving the puzzle, they will be invited to participate in an escape room that offers a $10,000 prize. Participants arrive at an office block without a greeting. When Ben attempts to leave, the handle on the door falls off, revealing that they have entered the challenge. The participants escape from the second room, which is a huge heating oven and a winter cabin. 

The rooms are fatal after they find the key. Danny is thrown through the ice and drowned in an icy room. Amanda falls to her death in an upside-down billiards bar, where pieces of the floor fall into deep shafts below. Jason shocks Mike with a puzzle solved in a hospital room filled with poisonous gases. Ben then kills Jason in an optical illusions room.

Through songs, coats, and hospital beds, some rooms remind players that they were the only survivors of many disasters. Mike survived a mine cave-in; Zoey survived a crash on a plane; Danny survived the death of his family members from carbon monoxide poisoning; Amanda survived an IED blast; Jason survived a shipwreck with frigid temperatures and Ben survived a car accident in which his friends perished. Zoey realizes that the goal of the game is to find the lucky player.

 After escaping from the last room, where a wall is moving inwards to crush Ben, Ben meets the Gamemaster who controls the Puzzle Maker’s game. The Gamemaster explained that every year, they attract players with something in common, such as college athletes or savants. The result was predicted by wealthy viewers who bet on it. This year, the game is luring only survivors from previous disasters. Ben is attempting to kill the Gamemaster, but Zoey intervenes and they both kill him.

After Ben is fully recovered, Zoey and a detective return to the building. Because all evidence regarding the game has vanished, the police don’t believe Zoey. Ben was also found to be high on drugs. Zoey sees graffiti on the wall and notices that the words “No Way Out”, which are an anagram of “Wootan Yu”, suggest that the game is still ongoing. 

Six months later Zoey meets Ben again and shows him newspaper articles showing how the deaths of other players were simply everyday accidents. Zoey refuses to move on when Ben suggests it. Ben is given clues by her that lead to a Manhattan unlisted building. Ben agrees to go along with her. The Puzzle Maker, however, is already planning to make their escape a deadly game of survival.
