An incredibly powerful film

This is an incredibly powerful film, documenting two men's journeys from hate and violence to some kind of understanding. At first it's hard to understand how John Daly, a Jew, could have been an officer of a neo-Nazi organisation, but the film explains the circumstances and charts his path to the realisation of what he has been through and the effect his actions and life have had on others.

Daly's friend from the Nazi group, Kevin Connell, has made his own journey from Southern States fascist to understanding the real effects of racism, and the connection between The Holocaust – a phrase that is used today with little real understanding of the horrors that took place – and the actions and attitudes of present day neo-Nazis is made very well. An unusual film, both harsh and emotional, and one that stays with you.

Excellent Film!

This film really brought to light that gang activity reaches to even the smallest of towns and spreads hate to every corner of the world. I love how it explores the transformation a person is capable of making. This film had my attention throughout its entirety. The emotions in this film are raw and absorb you into the real-life story. I highly recommend this film to any audience.

One man and his journey home.

Haunting.....that's the word that I kept thinking as I watched - from the imagery to the music and all the way through the narrative. Daniel Brea and Yan Fisher-Rom do a phenomenal job of telling John's story in a way that is compelling, while remaining respectful of the man he has become as a result of this journey. *Escape from Room 18* isn't your typical documentary about radicalism and a neo-Nazi movement, nor is it characteristic of most Holocaust films. It takes great strength and humility to tell this story.......Don't stop. It's about change and growth that transcends race and ethnicity, and ultimately a message of HOPE.
