 Six strangers wake up inside a cube with a seemingly endless maze with deadly traps. Now they must work together to try to find a way out.

 Vincenzo natali’s (Splice, 2009) now classic sci-fi horror is one of those movies that work so well perhaps because of the simplicity with which it is made. A limited set and a limited cast mean there is full focus on characters and their destinies, making Cube an intense and incredible gripping viewing experience. It plays with the characters different reaction to their situation and all characters develops throughout the movie. As the story moves forward in the Kafkaesque settings of industrialized cube-shaped rooms your sympathy shifts as characters change and you don’t just end thinking who gets out, you catch yourself thinking who you want to get out. The cast is fairly unknowns, but all does a great job, especially Miller (Last of Dogmen, 1995) as the autistic Kazan. A low-budget sci-fi horror with a touch of Twilight Zone, Cube is one to recommend.

 Moviegeek info:

  All the characters are named after prisons with each type of prisons hinting at the character’s character traits.
