Need to watch more new movies, I think.
I watched it - and I WANT TO BE THERE, IN THIS ROOM!!!!!!"Escape Room" (2019) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8W6yYBAUxv4
also, it reminded me about Hollow series I have seen not so long time ago.
YMS did a great review of it here, and I suggest you all watch it instead of the actual movie. Unless it comes out on Netflix or something and you have nothing better to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xEaPQAsouI
Still didn't watch it, maybe some day in the future...

if you've not yet tried an IRL escape room yet, i feel like i should warn you that they're mostly based not in surreal atmospheric games like Submachine/Rusty Lake/Deep Sleep but in the classic Japanese escape games, perhaps with a theme stuck on top of it like prisons, submarines, the jungle, a popular TV series, Harry Potter, whatever (this is at least where I live).
that said, I completely agree with you that the escape genre would benefit much more from a movie like Annihilation or Cube (or even the Rusty Lake movie if it was longer) than this cheap horror stuff we've seen a thousand times. the concept is perhaps not for 'mainstream' audiences or an easy cash-grab, but if done well they at least have the potential of attracting a cult audience, and maybe inspire some good surreal IRL escapes.
