Cube is a 1997 Canadian science fiction horror film directed and co-written by Vincenzo Natali. The film was a product of the Canadian Film Centre's First Feature Project. The film follows a group of people led by Quentin, a policeman, as they cross industrialized cube-shaped rooms, with some rigged with various traps designed to kill, with all of the occupants only remembering their name.
Cube gained notoriety for its surreal atmosphere and Kafkaesque setting, with the industrial, cube-shaped room design and concept. Since its release, the film received polarizing, yet favorable reviews, out of a mix of middling or negative reviews, and has since gained a cult following. The film spawned a film series, and a remake is currently in development at Lionsgate.
