Trapped in a Box! – 02 – Cube & Pontypool

Trapped in a Box!

We are back again with episode 2 of the Take Two Podcast and after the animal theme of the first episode, we now transcend into an environment theme and take two movies which are filmed predominantly within a confined space.

In this episode we look at the sci-fi cult classic Cube from 1997 and the restrained zombie outbreak movie Pontypool from 2008. In both of these movies the director utilizes a claustrophobic environment differently but both end up with the same effect in creating a tense, rigid scene which by the end of the movie is very familiar to the viewer. Also we do discuss various important plot points of two movies, so SPOILER ALERT, you have been warned.
