I recalled this low-budget scifi/horror gem last night.   Its one of my favorites.  Yeah it was cheap and that showed, but I feel they really did make a quality product with what they had.

I found it durn enjoyable.

I agree---I was shocked to see you post this movie in the "bad movies" subforum, Ed.  Glad you actually liked it, I thought I was going to have to kick your metaphorical ass.  Wink

Yeah it's a good movie. Recall being pleasantly surprised by how well it was done. Definitely has a cool Canadian vibe going for it too.

Saw it on Sci-Fi Channel and liked it.  I was disappointed that somethings was left unanswered in the first one.  I heard the second one does explain more, but its not as good-and the answered do ruin the mystery that the first one had.

The third one explains a lot, and it really is a bad movie. Trust me, the Cube is much more interesting when it retains its mystery.

Yeah I was going to say this, the 2nd one was definitely my favourite.

Very good film.  I do think it's let down by the ending, because it just doesn't make any sense.  How did the guy catch up to them?
