The third installment of the Cube series is a prequel to the very first film. It differs from the other two in the fact that it not only shows the perspective of those imprisoned within the cube, yet also shows the outside view through the technicians that are fine-tuning the cube mechanisms, as they observe the prisoners inside.

The cube is made up of many cubes/ rooms, with some rooms booby-trapped, and some ‘safe’. Each room has six doors, one to each face of the cube, leading to a different room/ cube.

Eric (Zachary Bennett) and Dodd (David Huband) are two of the cube technicians playing chess while observing the prisoners and the traps. Supposedly, all of those inside the cube were sentenced to death and were given the choice; between their sentence or the cube, and signed consent forms to be entered into the cube. Yet when Eric checks out prisoner Cassandra’s last memories and that she was kidnapped from her daughter, and that her file has no consent form, Eric realizes that the cube is inhumane and decides to help Cassandra (Stephanie Moore) escape…
