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.
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.
