From Amazon.co.uk

If Clive Barker had written an episode of The Twilight Zone, it might have looked something like Cube. A handful of strangers wake up inside a bizarre maze, having been spirited there during the night. They quickly learn that they have to navigate their way through a series of chambers if they have any hope of escape but the problem is that there are lethal traps awaiting if they choose their route unwisely. Having established some imaginative and grisly punishments in store for the hostages, cowriter and director Vincenzo Natali turns his attention to the characters, for whom being trapped amplifies their best and worst qualities. The film is, in fact, similar to a famous episode of Rod Serling's old television series, though Natali's explanation for why these poor people are being put through hell is a lot closer to the spirit of The X-Files. Cube has some solid moments of suspense and drama and the sets are appropriately striking: one is tempted to believe at first the characters are lost inside a computer chip. --Tom Keogh

Cube is one hell of a film.
The beginning sequence - where a man climbs into a red cube and is sliced into bits - and falls apart - by a giant net of knives - is a freezing horror that is sustained throughout the film.
There are many twists that leave you gasping with dread, and the few special effects that are used are used in a grippingly sinister way, mostly involving the painful death of a character.
What is most frightening and disturbing about this film however, is the agressively claustrophobic atmosphere, the desperate confusion as to why they are inside the cube and where, and the lingering possibility that they will die before they escape.
From start to finish, a shocking, chilling, thriller of a film. Don't be put off by the lack of big names - this film is absolutely SUPERB.

Format: DVD
"Cube" is a cult hit. That basically means that it's good or innovative, but not many people know about it.

Vincenzo Natali (also creator of "Cypher" and "Nothing") made his full-length directorial debut with this film -- a low-budet, innovative sci-thriller that feels like an episode of the "Twilight Zone," as written by Mark Danielewski and Franz Kafka. Yes, it's that surreal -- and that intelligent and well-written.

Seven people have been placed in a cubical room, which is connected to a bizarre maze of thousands more. Among are a cop, a disabled man, an architect, a student, a doctor and a criminal, and all of them have wildly disparate personalities. But they soon learn that behind the countless doors, there are deadly booby-traps.

So of course, their chances of survival don't seem so good. But they soon learn that their placement in the Cube is no accident -- each one has skills that the group needs. To escape, they will have to band together and use their brains. But why are they in the Cube in the first place -- and is the maze even the same as when they started?

Vincenzo Natali's "Cube" is a perfect example of what Hollywood can't seem to grasp -- it doesn't matter how much money is poured into a movie, because it's the concept, brains and skill that make it good or bad. Not the special effects or the big names.

And Natali did a magnificent job with his first full-length movie, infusing what seems to be a straightforward thriller with a taut, claustrophobic atmosphere, and some ominous hints about morality (or the lack of it) and sociology. It also has an unusually intelligent script, with prime numbers and their powers playing a big part, right next to the gruesome deaths. And of course, the solid dialogue. ("You've got a gift.

Format: DVD
This film restores your faith in Sci-fi films that has been lost with all the trash that has been thrown out over the years.
All too often sci-fi films are just boring, repeative nonsense playing on the same themes and fears.
This film breaks the mold. It is an intelligently written modern masterpiece, acted superbly by 6 unknowns with a tiny budget and shot very quickly with only one or maybe 2 takes for each scene.
The story of "Cube" is a strange but extremely facinating one.
Cube begins with 7 people waking up inside what resembles a massive Rubik Cube.Amoungst the many thousands of cubes that make up the structure are many rooms with have a deadly booby trap which will kill anyone who walks into it (usually in a very nasty way!)There are rooms which are safe to go into, but they have no idea which is which!
The poor souls have no recollection of how or why they came into the cube, and no one knows the purpose of the cube or who is ultimately responsible for their incarceration.
Stripped of practically every possession and tool, the small band of people are left to work their way around the maze of cube rooms in an attempt to find the exit before they die of starvation and thirst. In the process, they must avoid lethal traps, which dog their path.
The only apparent source of help is endless mathematical formulas engraved into each cube's door, apparently there to pinpoint the travellers' position within the entire structure and to identify traps - therefore providing a safe route out.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I was surprised to read on the front cover that this is the fifteenth anniversary edition, I never realised that this film is that old. It doesn't look dated at all but what it does do is illustrate just where films like 'Saw' came from with its nefarious traps. In this case a group of strangers wake up in a strange cell with six exits but which ones lead to safety and which ones to their doom. You never find out why they're in there or the reasoning behind the cube but that just lets you focus on their struggle to survive.
The film has been transferred to blu ray well with a DTS 5.1 soundtrack but the only extras are an interview with one of the stars who is obviously not as bright as her character and some storyboards.
At only £8 it is worth upgrading your copy to high definition if you already have it.
