Just like games, books, or television, movies play a big part in our lives. They give us a chance to escape from the real world and get lost in the fantasy land of fictional characters. When looking for a movie to watch, it can be difficult to find one that will keep you on the edge of your seat, especially if you love a certain type of movie genre.
If you happen to be both a movie fan and a fan of escape games, virtual escape games or murder mysteries, look no further. We’ve got you covered. We provide you with our top 5 best movies for escape game fans.
1. Saw (2004)
A classic. There are a lot of movies out there that are inspired from escape room situations, but Saw is certainly one of the best. The movie is set in a typical escape situation: locked without keys and the task is to get out. Sounds familiar?
The movie starts with two men who are locked in a room and chained to a wall. They need to play a serial killer’s game and solve puzzles to stay alive and get out of the room. 
The serial killer in this movie is Jigsaw – a complex character, worth exploring!
2. Now You See Me (2013)
Many escape games are centered around the hunt for a missing fortune or solving the perfect heist. The Now You See Me movie is a perfect blend of escaping excitement, magic tricks, and high prize theft.
The plot follows an FBI agent and an Interpol detective who track and attempt to bring to justice a team of magicians who pull off bank heists and robberies during their performances and reward their audiences with money.
If you are a fan of heist-themed escape rooms, you will love this movie.
3. ESCAPE ROOM (2019)
A psychological thriller about six strangers who are sent to navigate a series of escape rooms in order to win a $10.000 prize. What starts out as seemingly innocent fun soon turns into a living nightmare as the main characters discover each room is an elaborate trap that’s part of a sadistic game of life or death.
4. Cube (1997)
Another classic. With a similar plot to the Escape Movie, Cube tells the story of seven strangers that wake up in a cube-shaped room without any memories. Some of them are wearing booby trap devices. Their task is to navigate the various rooms in order to escape and avoid a gruesome death while also discovering the meaning of the Cube.
What’s great about this movie (even if it’s an old one) is that it’s filled with traps to keep the plot and the tension high, making the whole plot surprisingly gripping.
5. Follow Me (2020)
When the lines between real life and social media are blurred things can get deathly fast. 
Follow Me is an adventure horror mystery movie that follows the story of a social media personality who travels with his friends to Moscow to capture new content for his successful VLOG. As expected, his trip to Moscow to partake in an escape room turns out to be a mistake.
The narrative builds up in a dynamic manner as the story evolves and the main characters are faced with difficult situations, puzzles, and the fight to survive.
