A teacher opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son's elementary school; in it are some chilling predictions -- some that have already occurred and others that are about to -- that lead him to believe his family plays a role in the events that are about to unfold.
When Rains, Haskell and Meyerhold enter the cube with a dead body, Haskell suggests he starved to death, with Rains replying "God, I'm hungry". This is a reference to Cube²: Hypercube, where a character complained of hunger and killed a fellow captive and ate him. See more »
The characters enter a room identifying it as room A,Z,Z. Yet earlier in the film we learn that the letters had been burned off to prevent identifying particular rooms. See more »
amazing extension of this building saga and mythos
The cube movies are the most inventive and satisfying creations in budget horror films today.
The first film is still in my top ten list and is a destined to be classic. I was a little disappointed by the second film which took a much more of a sci fi turn.
But this film returns to the grittiness of the first. Also being that we get to see the observers of the cube more, many connections (mostly to the first film) and secrets are revealed.
Many people say that they didn't like this because it jumps around out of the cube so you can't really get connected with the people in the cube. But honestly, that story has already been done, to perfection in the first cube film. This film is more about the button men who work at the cube.
This movie is awesome and is a perfect sequel to the original, and far more superior than the first sequel.
