Cube script
Cube (1997)
Synopsis: Without remembering how they got there, several strangers awaken in a prison of cubic cells, some of them booby-trapped. There's onetime cop Quentin (Maurice Dean Wint), scientist Holloway (Nicky Guadagni), young math genius Leaven (Nicole de Boer), master of escapes Rennes (Wayne Robson), autistic savant Kazan (Andrew Miller) and architect Worth (David Hewlett), who might have more information on the maze than he lets on. The prisoners must use their combined skills if they are to escape.

At first we see an eye. Closed and slowly it opens up and looks around. Later we get a full view of a man lying on the floor in a strange-looking room. 4 walls, 1 ceiling, 1 floor. 6 sides just like a cube. There is a kind of door on each side. Each door has a handle. On the walls are weird-looking pictures. They doesn't seem to look like anything seen before. The man stands up in the middle of the room. The camera pans around him. Then he makes some sounds and opens a door in one of the walls. As he looks in to the open door, he sees a new room like the one he is located in, but the light in the new room is blue. He turns around and the door closes by itself. Then he opens the door in in the floor. Under that door, there's a new room excatly like the first, but in this room the light is red. The door closes. He opens a new door in one of the walls. The light in there is red. He looks back and then crawls into the new room. As he lands on the floor in the new room it makes a loud sound, and then the door closes behind him. He takes one step, and then there is a loud sound. The man stands still. Slowly he begins to bleed, and slowly his body begins to fall apart. As the last parts of his body hits the floor, we see a sort of trelliswork. First it moves to the floor, and afterwards it is being folded up.

A man lies on the floor. A door is open beside him. Slowly we see a hand trying to find something to hold on to. A man crawls up from the hole.

QUENTIN:

Hey...

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Quentin closes the door in the floor. He sits down beside the man lying on the floor and tries to wake him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

QUENTIN:

Hey...

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Quentin stands up and opens a door in one of the walls. He looks into a new room. Red light. He closes the door again. The man from before is now awake. We hear a sound from one of the other doors in the walls. Quentin stands beside the door preparing to attack whatever that comes out from there. As someone looks out, Quentin grabs her by the neck, throws her to the floor and tries to beat her, until he realises that it is a lady. The lady screams, and sits down in a corner of the room.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

QUENTIN:

I'm sorry... It's alright, I'm not gonna hurt you.

HOLLOWAY:

What do you want?

QUENTIN:

I thought you were...

HOLLOWAY:

What?

QUENTIN:

I don't know...

--------------------------------------------------------------------

We hear a loud sound and everybody in the room looks around. As the sound stops, someone screams for help. Quentin opens a door real fast. As the camera switches to a new angle, we see a girl in a red room screaming for help. When she sees Quentin she walks towards him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

QUENTIN:

STOP!

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Quentin crawls into the room.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

LEAVEN:

What, what?

QUENTIN:

It's ok, come here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Quentin helps Leaven into the room where the others are located. Holloway helps Leaven out, but not good enough, because Leaven falls and drops her glasses. Leaven sits up against a wall and Quentin comes towards her.
