10) Cube

A group of strangers wakes up in a cube-shaped room with no memory of how they got there. Soon they realize they are trapped inside a vast labyrinth made up of identical cube-shaped rooms - some of them deadlier than the others…

Cube is an exemplar of disciplined storytelling. Using only a single cube set, writer-director Vincenzo Natali builds a horror adventure that throws a cast of ordinary people into the belly of a giant engine of Kafkaesque torment. The film is sometimes criticized for taking the easy way out in not offering any explanation for why something as ridiculous as the Cube could ever exist, but this misses the point. The Cube is almost intentionally pointless, its origin as vast a puzzle as its workings. “What kind of society would build this?” is the question we’re supposed to take away from it.

“When are we going to start repopulating humanity?” “What, humanity died out?” “Um…sure.”
