Insidious: The Last Key director Adam Robitel worked with screenwriters Bragi Schut (Season of the Witch) and Maria Melnik (Starz’s American Gods) to bring a horror twist to the concept of escape rooms.

In the first trailer for Escape Room, the psychological-thriller begins just as the popular gaming craze that swept the nation: six strangers from are brought together, locked in a room, and tasked with solving a series of puzzles in order to escape it.

According to MINOS, a mysterious organization, this escape room is their “most immersive room yet.” From there, the trailer takes a Saw-like turn wherein the subjects — including ones played by Daredevil‘s Deborah Ann Woll and Love, Simon‘s Logan Miller — must solve the puzzle before the clock runs out, otherwise they will be killed by dangerous contraptions.

As it happens, there was a Jigsaw-inspired escape room came to New York Comic Con.

Taylor Russell (Netflix’s Lost in Space), Jay Ellis (HBO’s Insecure), Tyler Labine (Voltron: Legendary Defender), Nik Dodani (Atypical), and Yorick van Wageningen (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) also star in Escape Room, which will open in theaters on Jan. 4, 2019.
