This is in the sam microgenre as The Exam or Cube (though far closer to the former in terms of violence/onscreen gore than the latter). And Howery is game.

But it has serious pacing issues and ends up feeling like a crackerjack 80 to 88 minute long feature dog paddling for its life in a 106 minute runtime.
