Plot: Six ordinary people (student, ex-con, engineer, social worker, cop, mentally handicapped) are trapped in a maze of interlocking cubes with no apparent way out. They have no recollection of how they got there or why they were chosen. They have no food or water and upon further investigation discover some of the rooms are booby trapped with creative devices of destruction. After the initial panic, they come to realize that each person possesses a unique ability which may aid in their safe navigation through the rooms and a possible escape. Can they overcome personal conflict and work together? Interesting set design, moody lighting, and creative computer generated imagery add to the claustrophobic feeling of Vincenzo Natali's film, which was a hit at several festivals in

external linkIntriguing and highly original low-budget horror/sci-fi comes out of nowhere to grab you by the throat thanks to the muscular direction by Natali, the effectively desolete setting, strong performances from a mostly unknown cast and an intelligent as Hellscript. ... Tightly wound with tension, genuinely creepy and with a shocking ending to boot this is the best horror film of the year. See it, see it now. 4/4

external linkThis is an amazing story that combines horror and science fiction elements, but is a bit more intelligent than the standard fare within those genres. 4.5/5
--Jill (ColdSpot)

external linkPretty kick-ass, Canadian sci-fi flick, replete with gore, bad acting and about all the drama you can pack into a flick filmed almost entirely in a single room.

external linkShoddy acting and a semi-weak script cant hold this movie back. Its simply too good a premise and too well-directed to let minor hindrances de-rail its creepy premise. 3.5/5
