SCREAMBOX, a leading horror streaming service, has announced that it will be releasing a new version of the 1997 Canadian cult classic “Cube” on April 11th. This version, titled “Cube: The Japanese Remake”, is a fresh take on the original concept and will be available exclusively on SCREAMBOX as a SCREAMBOX Original. It will also be available on VOD platforms the same day via Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting.
The film follows a group of strangers who wake up in a mysterious room inscribed with an unfamiliar code. As they try to find a way out, they discover that the room is full of lethal traps. Fear and distrust start to set in, and the group must work together to survive the sadistic maze.
Vincenzo Natali, the writer-director of the original “Cube”, serves as executive producer on this new version, ensuring that the unique production design and storytelling that made the original a cult classic is honored in this new adaptation. Yasuhiko Shimizu directs the film from a script by Kôji Tokuo, and Akiko Funatsu (Ichi the Killer) and Satoko Ishida produce.
The cast includes Masaki Suda (Kamen Rider W), Anne Watanabe (Miss Hokusai), Masaki Okada (Drive My Car), Takumi Saitoh (Shin Godzilla), Kôtarô Yoshida, and Hikaru Tashiro. Together, they deliver a darker, deadlier exploration of isolation.
“Vincenzo Natali’s Cube is a modern cult classic that broke new ground with its unique production design and storytelling,” says Brad Miska, Managing Director of Bloody Disgusting. “This new Japanese experience honors the original and delivers the goods horror fans expect to see. Cube enthusiasts are going to want to solve this puzzle.”
This release is the latest addition to SCREAMBOX’s growing library of unique horror content, which includes “The Outwaters”, “Terrifier 2”, “Living with Chucky”, “13 Nights of Elvira”, “Re-Animator”, “Sleepaway Camp”, “Hell House LLC”, “Pennywise: The Story of IT”, and “Toxic Crusaders”.
SCREAMBOX is available on multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Prime Video, Roku, YouTube TV, Samsung, Comcast, Cox, and Screambox.com. Horror fans can start screaming now and enjoy the thrilling experience that Cube: The Japanese Remake promises to offer.
