I think a good place for either a horror game or movie would be under the ocean in some sort of undersea base. Much like Outer Space, under the ocean gives an intense and oppressive atmosphere, you can't go anywhere other than the confounds of whatever base it is because outside is nothing but water. The other thing is the lighting under the ocean can get extremely dark to the point sunlight doesn't even reach. There's also the fear of hulls or windows breaching and water being let in and also the fear of some humanoid creature or monster to take a peek inside through one the windows.
I've never been too keen on underwater bases for horror movies. though SOMA was great (the setting didn't impact the horror whatsoever). I prefer really mundane settings like what Conjuring or Silent Hill can offer, in that the horror is invading our world.
On the other hand, I really like it when people are confronted to nature. Caves, Antartica, the desert, the forest. Putting people in a deadly environment as well as putting them against something in order to emphasize how vulnerable they are.
