Feature Length: 87 mins
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.

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.... Read more ›
