Amusing high-energy GM, nice set decor, a cute interaction, and a lot of shout outs to the movie. The role assignment doesn't work as well virtually; it's probably best played as 2-4.

They did a great job with the license, and the avatar character is very amusing and engaging throughout.  If you're in the area, it might be worth holding off so you can experience the room in person -- but you'll actually be missing some fun interactions, such as telling the avatar to do certain scary things...

Reviews by escape room review sites

Evil Dead II and role play I was looking forward to this room! I'd been stumbling around for a few days, telling anyone who wanted to hear it that I'd be the "psychic" of the band in a remote escape room with role-playing!Well as usual I'm going faster than the music.I didn't know Evil Dead II, a cult movie from the 80's mixing horror or comedy. Hourglass escape managed to get the license for this movie which has a lot of fans. So don't panic, you don't need to know this movie to have fun....
In 1300 AD, a ‘Hero from the Sky’ was prophesied to have destroyed the Evil. Unfortunately, he wasn’t available today, so they called in the next best thing: us. (Hey – we run a website; the internet is on the cloud… same thing, right?) Groovy.


I would have loved to play this room in person as the set design looked amazing. You do not need to have seen the movie in order to play this escape room but out of curiosity we watched the movie after and the decor was spot on. The attention to detail on the props could be seen even on camera. There were lot of "ooooo" and "ahhh" moments from each of our teammates as the secrets of the rooms unveiled.
