The concept of an IRL room escape is now being made into a movie:

Have watched Christopher Robin recently.
Need to watch more new movies, I think.

Edit:
I watched it - and I WANT TO BE THERE, IN THIS ROOM!!!!!! :D

also, it reminded me about Hollow series I have seen not so long time ago.

was about to post it but you beat me to it :D

it seems there's also another movie from 2017 with the same title, though not very good.

Watched Escape Room. It's absolute garbage, like I thought it would be from the trailer. I'm not even mad, except it disgraces the whole concept. 1/10 lolol

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

sad to see you disliked it.
Still didn't watch it, maybe some day in the future...

found your comment! I saw the word Submachine and I knew it had to be you :P

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.
