The things that people come up with amaze me. This movie is literally as it sounds. Dave makes a maze. To throw in some confusion and comedic horror, he gets lost in this maze that is taking on a life of it's own and it feeds on humans. So basically, Kumbhani's character comes home to find a cardboard maze in their living room. Dave is inside and he says he's lost. Obviously, she can't fathom how he would be lost in such a small cardboard maze. So she calls all his friends and the lot of them go into get him regardless of Dave's pleas of staying away.
Honestly, this movie feels to me like someone watched Out of the Box when they were a child, grew up and thought to themselves "how can I adapt this children's show into a comedic horror movie"? And this movie was born.
I will admit, I found this film pretty entertaining and at some points found myself giggling at the ridiculousness of it. Basically, this maze has booby traps that kill people, a mythical creature that wants to eat people, and magical tendencies that get you lost as you get further into the maze. I really liked the optical illusion room, but after that they turned into paper bags (like the brown ones you take your lunch in) and that was a little too much for me to handle. But once they got back to their normal selves I was fine.
I feel like this film is just as dumb as Safety not Guaranteed, but actually interesting and not boring to watch. I'm going to with an "okay" rating here. If you like strange movies that are funny (for some reason I didn't find this one to be immature in humor) then I suggest it. It's only an hour and 20 minutes so it won't take up too much of your time. (2.5/5).
