Back in the early 2000’s, Hollywood loved to take classic J-Horror films and remake them for Western audiences. ‘The Grudge’, ‘The Ring’, ‘Dark Water’ and ‘One Missed Call’ amongst others all received the remake treatment to varying degrees of success. However, it’s rare to see the vice versa happen. But this has happened because a 1-minute teaser for the Japanese remake of ‘Cube’ was released a few days ago. 

The original film was released in 1997 and revolved around six strangers trapped in an endless maze of deadly traps. It’s an underrated classic and had the tension and gore that would be expected from a premise like this. And, if the teaser is anything to go by, it does look like a near shot for shot remake, this time involving seven strangers.



However, I’m looking forward to this; I’m a huge fan of J-Horror and know that Japan can definitely deliver when it comes to gory, and unique, horror films (just look at 2008’s ‘Tokyo Gore Police’ and 2005’s ‘Meatball Machine’ for just a couple of examples), so I’m curious to see Japan’s version of the film. Like previously mentioned, it also looks as if it won’t stray too far from the source material which is also a plus, considering what the premise is. 

Overall, I’m looking forward to the Japanese remake of ‘Cube’. It’s a film that came out of nowhere but one I’m glad to know about. 

‘Cube’ will be released in Japan on 22nd October 2021. Release dates for the rest of the world have not been confirmed yet. 

And here’s the poster:
