I'm waiting for my copy of "Cube Zero" to arrive in the mail. I was thinking that I'll probably put it next to my other "Cube" movies, and my copies of "Fortress" and "Fortress 2." Does anyone else have any other sci-fi prison flicks in mind that I should buy to put next to those?

How about 'Escape from New York'?

Aliens 3 might also be a match.  Kind of.

The first episode of the old BBC TV series 'Blakes 7' has a big prison theme.  Should still be available on VHS, if not DVD by now.

A quick Google for 'science fiction'  +prison turned up a flick called 'Prison Planet' made in 1992.  Looks bad.  Very bad.;_ylt=AoGa83uTVen.zYAQdXL1t3H7994A;_ylu=X3oDMTA5ZW01N2htBHNlYwNiZ3NpYg--

Hope that gave you some more ideas.

These kind of drift away from strictly scifi prison movies:

"No Escape" starring Ray Liotta, Kevin Dillon and Lance Henriksen. "We seem to have an opening."

"Escape 2000" - another variation on "The Most Dangerous Game".

"Space Rage" - Michael Pare and Richard Farnsworth. More of a western prison escape flick dressed up as a scifi flick. Not that good.

"Brother From Another Planet" - interesting little John Sayles film about an alien who resembles a black human and hides from alien bounty hunters in Harlem. If you liked "Piranha" or "Alligator" you might like this since he wrote those as well.

"Android" - really a space prisoners on the run meet android and mad scientist flick, but since they run into Don Opper and Klaus Kinski, it's worth a look.

"Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity" - yet another "Most Dangerous Game" copy, but they start out as prisoners.

Either film version of "1984". More dystopian nightmare than prison film, but the characters lives resemble those of prisoners.

Way off the map of what you are looking for but "The Ninth Configuration" might suit you. Various mentally ill members of the military are locked away in a remote castle. Stars Stacy Keach as the unusual new psychiatrist along with a huge cast of familiar faces. Begins with a scene of an astronaut having a breakdown on the launchpad just before the launch of a space mission. Written (based on his book) and directed by William Peter Blatty, who wrote the novel "The Exorcist", so you can expect much oddness to follow.

Don't forget Caged Heat 3000.  Another one that sort of has the feeling of those Cube movies is Alien Cargo.  No actual prison, but they're trapped on a ship.  Unfortunately I don't think either of those is available on DVD.
