CUBE Movie!! The Original SAW!

Updated on November 7, 2010

 Before SAW made its mark on horror history there was a much smaller film that paved the way for it! That movie Is CUBE! For those that desire fast action this is not for you. For those that love true direction and and story lines this is a ground breaker! Good vs. evil and only the strong survive at it's best, and it's pure mental strength and awareness not physical strength that survives. You don't even need to solve the puzzle to love this movie. The atmosphere the acting the plot the whole development of character as the movie goes on the traps are among the most brutal in movie history the ending is great but a little complex.

The Plot- Six ordinary strangers awaken from their daily lives to find themselves trapped in a surreal prison, a seemingly endless maze of interlocking cubical chambers armed with lethal booby traps.

Plot sound familiar! SAW has numerous similarities to this movie and don't get me wrong I really enjoyed the SAW films but someone obviously got the idea from CUBE especially the second SAW film.

Now off the topic of Saw and lets talk about the traps in the CUBE, In the movie they move from cube to cube and some have traps in them and some don't, there is a way to figure out which cubes to go into and which not too, but that's what the characters have to figure out for themselves if they want to live. There are some truly gruesome traps inside the cube but i think the worst one is in the opening scene ,  don't want to give the movie away though, so I highly recommend you rent and watch CUBE!

      Saw is a spitting image of cube.... Nothing is original anymore.... Everything is borrowed from a book or a movie. Great article btw... Lol

      I had never heard of the movie Cube before I read this hub. I did like the first couple of Saw movies so, it sounds like it may be an interesting viewing. Nice hub.

      I totally agree with you about Hyper Cube, the second film was just confusing and lacked the suspense of the first film. The 3rd film goes back to its original roots so itsmuch better but still nothing beats the first movie

      I agree. Cube was an interesting film. The traps were inventive and merciless. Cube 2 didn't do much for me. Good post...thanks for the read.

      Cube indeed was a creative scifi gorefest with twist and turns that plagued the mind, so was cube 2, but not as great as the first cube, entertaining post, Glimmer515.
