Cube Zero is a 2004 Canadian independent science fiction psychological horror thriller film and directed by Ernie Barbarash. It is a prequel to the other films. Though the first two films take place entirely within the maze, Cube Zero is set in both the interior and exterior of the cube; the film reverts to the industrial-designed, colored rooms of the first film, but with a refreshed and redesigned set. A man is trying to escape from the titular Cube. Upon entering a trapped room, he is sprayed with a liquid that melts his entire body; the rooms in the Cube are being monitored from a remote observation room by two technicians, Eric Wynn and Dodd, who are unaware of who their employers are. The pair are shown playing chess during work, whereupon Wynn demonstrates mental calculator abilities which he uses to predict Dodd's moves. Wynn has a hobby of drawing comics that portray him and Dodd as superheroes. Wynn and Dodd are ordered to record the dream of Cassandra Rains. In her dream, Wynn sees Rains captured while walking in a forest with her daughter.
Rains wakes up in the Cube and meets the other occupants: one of them, Robert Haskell, has the same tattoo on his forehead as the soldier who captured her. However, like everyone else, only knows his own name and has no recollection of his former life or how he got there. According to what Wynn and Dodd know, everyone in the Cube faced a death sentence and volunteered to partake in psychological experiments instead. Rains' consent form, however, is not found in her file; the captives venture through the Cube, testing each room for traps by throwing a boot in it: most of them are killed anyway until only Rains and Haskell remain. A phone call from their superiors instructs Wynn and Dodd to perform an "exit procedure" for Owen, a former colleague of theirs and now a test subject, who has reached one of the exits of the Cube; the procedure fails after Owen answers no to a question - whether or not he believes in God - prompting Dodd to push a "no" button which causes Owen to be incinerated. According to Dodd, no one has answered yes to any question posed during the exit procedure.
Wynn concludes that the Cube is inhumane and people are being placed in it against their will, therefore decides to enter the Cube himself and rescue Rains: he enters an elevator that communicates with a Cube entrance and joins Rains and Haskell. Dodd is joined in the observation room by his supervisor Jax and two of his analysts, who have learned of the incident. Jax has the Cube occupants trapped in one room electrifies the walls of that room to electrocute them. Dodd secretly sabotages the control panels servicing the Cube; this shuts down every trap and initiates a "reset mode", which gives the prisoners ten minutes to escape the Cube as its rooms return to their initial positions, before a sterilization procedure vaporizes everything inside. Jax discovers Dodd's betrayal and kills him he activates Haskell's sleeper agent through a chip implanted in him. Haskell becomes hostile towards his companions, who struggle to continue their escape and leave him behind, they reach an exit to find Haskell waiting for them: in the ensuing struggle and Rains manage to jump into the auxiliary exit right as the sterilization procedure starts, vaporizing Haskell.
Wynn and Rains emerge in a lake. They run through a forest similar to the one seen while being chased by soldiers. Wynn recaptured, allowing Rains to escape, he wakes up in a surgery room, where Jax informs him that he has been sentenced for high treason, that many years earlier he had agreed to become a test subject, despite Wynn remembering neither the trial nor signing the consent. Wynn's brain is surgically altered, he dreams about Rains reuniting with her daughter and praising him as a superhero. A now mentally handicapped Wynn is found by its new captives, he mentions the color of the room and that he wants to go back to a different color, mirroring Kazan's initial appearance in the first film. Reviews have been positive, including positive notices from JoBlo.com, AMC's Movie Guide, DVD Talk, Bloody Disgusting, with Bloody Disgusting saying that "Cube: Zero isn't the best of the series, but it comes close."

A booby trap is a device or setup, intended to kill, harm, or surprise a person or animal, unknowingly triggered by the presence or actions of the victim. As the word trap implies, they sometimes have some form of bait designed to lure the victim towards it. At other times, the trap is set to act upon trespassers that violate restricted areas; the device can be triggered when the victim performs some type of everyday action, e.g. opening a door, picking something up, or switching something on. They can be triggered by vehicles driving along a road, as in the case of victim-operated improvised explosive devices. Booby traps should not be confused with mantraps. Lethal booby traps are used in warfare guerrilla warfare, traps designed to cause injury or pain are sometimes used by criminals wanting to protect drugs or other illicit property, by some owners of legal property who wish to protect it from theft. Booby traps which cause discomfort or embarrassment are a popular form of practical joke.
The Spanish word bobo translates to "stupid, daft, naïve, fool, clown, funny man, one, cheated" and similar pejorative terms. The slang of bobo, translates to "dunce". Variations of this word exist in other languages, with their meaning being "to stammer". Thus, the term "booby trap" gives rise to the idea that an individual with the misfortune to be caught in the trap does so because the individual is a "booby", or that an individual, caught in the trap thereby becomes a "booby"; the word has been applied to the sea bird genus Sula, with their common name being boobies. These birds, adapted for sea flight and swimming, have large flat feet and wide wingspans, making it difficult for them to run or take flight quickly; as a result, they are considered easy to catch when onshore. They are known for landing aboard seagoing vessels, whereupon they have been eaten by the crew. In 1590, the word began appearing in the English language as booby, meaning "stupid person, slow bird"; the phrase booby trap applied to schoolboy pranks, but took on its more sinister connotation during World War I.
A military booby trap may be designed to kill or injure a person who activates its trigger, or employed to reveal the location of an enemy by setting off a signalling device. Most, but not all, military booby traps involve explosives. There is no clear division between a booby trap and buried conventional land mines triggered by a tripwire or directional mine. Other, similar devices include spring-guns and mechanisms such as the SM-70 directional antipersonnel mine. What distinguishes a booby trap is that its activation is intended to be unexpected to its victim, thus booby trap design is varied, with traps or their trigger mechanisms hidden. At least part of the device is improvised from standard ordnance, such as an artillery shell, grenade, or high explosive. However, some mines have features designed for incorporation into booby traps and armies have been equipped with a variety of mass-produced triggering mechanisms intended to be employed in booby traps deployment. Part of the skill in placing booby traps lies in exploiting natural human behaviors such as habit, self-preservation, curiosity or acquisitiveness.
A common trick is to provide victims with a simple solution to a problem, for example, leaving only one door open in an otherwise secure building, thereby luring them straight toward the firing mechanism. An example that exploits an instinct for self-preservation was used in the Vietnam War. Spikes known as Punji sticks were hidden in grassy areas; when fired upon soldiers instinctively sought to take cover by throwing themselves down on the ground, impaling themselves on the spikes. Attractive or interesting objects are used as bait. For example, troops could leave behind empty beer bottles and a sealed wooden packing case with "Scotch Whisky" marked on it before leaving an area; the rubble-filled packing case might be resting on top of an M5 or M142 firing device, connected to some blocks of TNT or to some C4 explosive stuffed into the empty fuze pocket of a mortar shell. Alternatively, the weight of the packing case might be holding down the arming lever of an RGD-5 grenade with a zero-delay fuze fitted and the pin removed.
Either way, when the case is moved. Many different types of bait object can be used e.g. soldiers will be tempted to kick an empty beer can lying on the ground as they walk past it. However, the can may be resting on top of an M5 pressure-release firing device screwed into a buried M26 grenade. Many purpose-built booby-trap firing devices exist such as the versatile M142 universal firing device, or Yugoslavian UMNOP-1 which allow a variety of different ways of triggering explosives e.g. via trip wire, direct pressure on an object, or pressure release etc. Any item can be booby-trapped in some way. For example, booby trapping a flashlight is a classic tactic: a flashlight contains most of the required components. First of all, tempting the victim to pick it up. More it is easy to conceal a detonator, some explosives, batteries inside the flashlight casing. A simple electrical circuit is connected to the on/off switch; when the victim attempts to turn the flashlight on to see if it works, the resulting explosion blows their hand or arm off and blinds them.

Franz Kafka was a German-speaking Bohemian Jewish novelist and short-story writer regarded as one of the major figures of 20th-century literature. His work, which fuses elements of realism and the fantastic features isolated protagonists facing bizarre or surrealistic predicaments and incomprehensible socio-bureaucratic powers, has been interpreted as exploring themes of alienation, existential anxiety and absurdity, his best known works include "Die Verwandlung", Der Process, Das Schloss. The term Kafkaesque has entered the English language to describe situations like those found in his writing. Kafka was born into a middle-class, German-speaking Jewish family in Prague, the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today the capital of the Czech Republic, he trained as a lawyer, after completing his legal education, was employed full-time by an insurance company, forcing him to relegate writing to his spare time. Over the course of his life, Kafka wrote hundreds of letters to family and close friends, including his father, with whom he had a strained and formal relationship.
He became engaged to several women but never married. He died in 1924 at the age of 40 from tuberculosis. Few of Kafka's works were published during his lifetime: the story collections Betrachtung and Ein Landarzt, individual stories were published in literary magazines but received little public attention. In his will, Kafka instructed his executor and friend Max Brod to destroy his unfinished works, including his novels Der Process, Das Schloss and Der Verschollene, but Brod ignored these instructions, his work has influenced a vast range of writers, critics and philosophers during the 20th and 21st centuries. Kafka was born near the Old Town Square in Prague part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, his family were German-speaking middle-class Ashkenazi Jews. His father, Hermann Kafka, was the fourth child of Jakob Kafka, a shochet or ritual slaughterer in Osek, a Czech village with a large Jewish population located near Strakonice in southern Bohemia. Hermann brought the Kafka family to Prague.
After working as a travelling sales representative, he became a fashion retailer who employed up to 15 people and used the image of a jackdaw as his business logo. Kafka's mother, was the daughter of Jakob Löwy, a prosperous retail merchant in Poděbrady, was better educated than her husband. Kafka's parents spoke a German influenced by Yiddish, sometimes pejoratively called Mauscheldeutsch, but, as the German language was considered the vehicle of social mobility, they encouraged their children to speak Standard German. Hermann and Julie had six children. Franz's two brothers and Heinrich, died in infancy before Franz was seven. All three died during the Holocaust of World War II. Valli was deported to the Łódź Ghetto in occupied Poland in 1942, but, the last documentation of her. Ottilie was Kafka's favourite sister. Hermann is described by the biographer Stanley Corngold as a "huge, overbearing businessman" and by Franz Kafka as "a true Kafka in strength, appetite, loudness of voice, self-satisfaction, worldly dominance, presence of mind, knowledge of human nature".
On business days, both parents were absent from the home, with Julie Kafka working as many as 12 hours each day helping to manage the family business. Kafka's childhood was somewhat lonely, the children were reared by a series of governesses and servants. Kafka's troubled relationship with his father is evident in his Brief an den Vater of more than 100 pages, in which he complains of being profoundly affected by his father's authoritarian and demanding character; the dominating figure of Kafka's father had a significant influence on Kafka's writing. The Kafka family had a servant girl living with them in a cramped apartment. Franz's room was cold. In November 1913 the family moved into a bigger apartment, although Ellie and Valli had married and moved out of the first apartment. In early August 1914, just after World War I began, the sisters did not know where their husbands were in the military and moved back in with the family in this larger apartment. Both Ellie and Valli had children. Franz at age 31 moved into Valli's former apartment, quiet by contrast, lived by himself for the first time.
From 1889 to 1893, Kafka attended the Deutsche Knabenschule German boys' elementary school at the Masný trh/Fleischmarkt, now known as Masná Street. His Jewish education ended with his Bar Mitzvah celebration at the age of 13. Kafka never enjoyed attending the synagogue and went with his father only on four high holidays a year. After leaving elementary school in 1893, Kafka was admitted to the rigorous classics-oriented state gymnasium, Altstädter Deutsches Gymnasium, an academic secondary school at Old Town Square, within the Kinský Palace. German was the language of instruction, but Kafka spoke and wrote in Czech, he studied the latter at the gymnasium for eight years. Although Kafka received compliments for his Czech, he never considered himself fluent in Czech, though he spoke German with a Czech accent, he completed his Matura exams in 1901. Admitted to the Deutsche Karl-Ferdinands-Universität of Pra
Barbed tape or razor wire is a mesh of metal strips with sharp edges whose purpose is to prevent passage by humans. The term "razor wire", through long usage, has been used to describe barbed tape products. Razor wire is much sharper than the standard barbed wire; the points are sharp and made to rip and snag clothing and flesh. The multiple blades of a razor wire fence are designed to inflict serious cuts on anyone attempting to climb through and therefore have a strong psychological deterrent effect. Razor wire is used in many high-security applications because, although it can be circumvented quickly by humans with tools, penetrating a razor wire barrier without tools is slow and difficult, giving security forces more time to respond. Starting in the late 1960s, barbed tape was found in prisons and secure mental hospitals, where the increased breaching time for a poorly equipped potential escapee was a definite advantage; until the development of reinforced barbed tape in the early 1980s, it was used for military purposes or genuine high security facilities because, with the correct tools, it was easier to breach than barbed wire.
Since some military forces have replaced barbed wire with barbed tape for many applications because it is lighter for the same effective coverage and it takes up little space compared to barbed wire or reinforced barbed tape when stored on drums. More barbed tape has been used in more commercial and residential security applications; this is primarily a visual deterrent since a well-prepared burglar can breach barbed wire and barbed tape barriers in similar amounts of time, using simple techniques such as cutting the wire or throwing a piece of carpet over its strands. Due to its dangerous nature, razor wire/barbed tape and similar fencing/barrier materials is prohibited in some locales. Norway prohibits any barbed wire except in combination with other fencing, in order to protect domesticated animals from exposure. Razor wire has a central strand of high tensile strength wire, a steel tape punched into a shape with barbs; the steel tape is cold-crimped to the wire everywhere except for the barbs.
Flat barbed tape is similar, but has no central reinforcement wire. The process of combining the two is called roll forming. Like barbed wire, razor wire is available as either straight wire, spiral coils, concertina coils, flat wrapped panels or welded mesh panels. Unlike barbed wire, available only as plain steel or galvanized, barbed tape razor wire is manufactured in stainless steel, to reduce corrosion from rusting; the core wire can be galvanized and the tape stainless, although stainless barbed tape is used for permanent installations in harsh climatic environments or under water. Barbed tape is characterized by the shape of the barbs. Although there are no formal definitions short barb barbed tape has barbs from 10 mm to 12 mm long, medium barb tape has barbs 20 mm to 22 mm long, long barb tape has barbs from 60 to 66 mm long. Helical type. Helical type razor wire is the most simple pattern. There are no concertina attachments and each spiral loop is left, it shows a natural spiral freely.
Concertina type. It is the most used type in the security defense applications; the adjacent loops of helical coils are attached by clips at specified points on the circumference. It shows an accordion-like configuration condition. Blade type; the razor wire are produced in straight lines and cut into certain length to be welded onto the galvanized or powder coated frame. It can be used individually as security barrier. Flat type. A popular razor wire type with flat and smooth configuration. According to different technology, it can be welded type. Welded type; the razor wire tape are welded into panels the panels are connected by clips or tie wires to form a continuous razor wire fence. Flattened type, it is an transformation of single coil concertina razor wire. Flatten the concertina wire to form the flat type razor wire. Single coil. Seen and used type, available in both helical and concertina types. Double coil. A complex razor wire type to supply higher security grade. A smaller diameter coil is placed inside of the larger diameter coil.

Cube is a 1997 Canadian science-fiction horror film directed and co-written by Vincenzo Natali. A product of the Canadian Film Centre's First Feature Project, the film follows a group of people as they cross industrialized cube-shaped rooms, some rigged with various traps designed to kill. Cube has gained notoriety and a cult following, for its surreal atmosphere and Kafkaesque setting and concept of industrial, cube-shaped rooms; the film received polarizing reviews, was followed by two sequels. A remake is in development at Lionsgate. After a man named Alderson dies in a mysterious cube-shaped room, five people – Quentin, Holloway and Leaven – meet in another room. None know how they got there. Quentin informs the others. Rennes assumes each trap is triggered by a motion detector and tests each room by throwing one of his boots in first. Leaven notices numbers inscribed in the passageways between rooms. Quentin recognizes Rennes as "The Wren", a convict. After declaring one room trap-free, Rennes is killed when he is sprayed with acid.
The others realize that there are different kinds of detectors, Quentin deduces that this trap was triggered by heat. Quentin believes, he is a police officer, Leaven a mathematics student, Holloway a physician and conspiracy theorist, the surly Worth declines to talk about himself. Leaven hypothesizes, they find a mentally challenged man named Kazan. When Quentin injures his leg in a room deemed safe by Leaven's calculations, tensions rise due to personality conflicts and lack of faith in Leaven's system. Quentin provokes Worth into an argument about finding the exit, Worth accidentally reveals that he has knowledge of the Cube. Worth admits that he designed the Cube's outer shell for a shadowy bureaucracy and guesses that its original purpose has been forgotten. Worth's knowledge of the outer shell's size allows Leaven to determine that each side of the Cube is 26 rooms across and that there are 17,576 rooms in total, she guesses. The group moves toward the nearest edge as determined by her theory, but each of the rooms near the outer wall is trapped.
Rather than backtrack, they travel silently through a room with a sound-activated trap. After Kazan makes a sound and nearly causes Quentin's death, Quentin threatens Kazan. Holloway provokes Quentin into an argument by calling him a Nazi; the acrimonious argument escalates until Quentin slaps her, further increasing tension within the group. When they reach the edge, Holloway scouts the gap between the Cube and its outer shell but slips during a violent quake, he reports it to the others as an accident. Quentin attempts to persuade Leaven to abandon the others with him and makes a sexual advance, but she rejects him; when Quentin becomes aggressive, Worth intervenes. Worth laughs hysterically -- Rennes's corpse; the group is demoralized by the thought of having been wandering in circles. Worth realizes that the rooms move periodically through the Cube, this is the source of the quaking. Leaven deduces that traps are not by powers of prime numbers. Much to Quentin's surprise, Kazan reveals himself to be an autistic savant who can do prime factorizations mentally.
With Kazan's help, Leaven guides them to a bridge room which will lead them out of the maze in two movements. Worth preemptively leaves him behind. Kazan opens the supposed final door, revealing a bright white light, but Worth declines to leave the Cube, as he has lost faith in humanity. Leaven objects and attempts to convince Worth to join her, but Quentin reappears, kills her, mortally wounds Worth; as Quentin moves to kill Kazan, Worth expends the last of his strength to grab Quentin's leg, pinning him in the passageway as the rooms shift again. Quentin is torn apart, Worth crawls back to Leaven's corpse and dies next to her. Kazan walks into the bright light, his ultimate fate unknown. Maurice Dean Wint as Quentin McNeil, a police officer, he is a aggressive man who takes charge and undertakes most of the dangerous tasks. He is said to be in his 40s. Nicole de Boer as Joan Leaven, a young student with mathematical skills, she is said to be in her early 20s. David Hewlett as David Worth, a chronic malcontent and cynic who unwittingly designed the outer shell of the Cube.
He is said to be in late 20s to early 30s. Andrew Miller as Kazan, an autistic man with the ability to and perform prime number calculations, he is said to be in his 20s. Nicky Guadagni as Dr. Helen Holloway, a free clinic doctor and a paranoid conspiracy theorist, she is said to be in her early 50s. Wayne Robson as Rennes known as "the Wren", an escape artist who has gotten out of seven prisons, he is said to be in his early 60s. Julian Richings as a prisoner and a mysterious character, he never met the rest of the group. Each character's name is connected with a real-world prison: An episode of the original The Twilight Zone television series, "Five Characters in Search of an Exit", was an inspiration for the film. Though Vincenzo Natali had the initial inspiration to make a film "set in hell" in 1990, it was not until 1994, when he was working as a storyboard artist's assistant at Canada's Nelvana animat
