Looking for short film featuring mysterious black cube
October 4, 2012 8:17 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for an online video from a couple years back. It is a short scifi movie shot in the first person, which features a scientist waking up in a lab, looking out the window to see a giant tower shooting a beam into the sky, and then grabbing a black cube with lights on it, which appears to have some sort of strange powers. It was hosted on a website which had some other seemingly related material. I don't know if it was from an ARG, or a standalone video, or what, but I'd really like to watch it again.

That sounds like What's in the Box?.

It's from The SCP Foundation, or at least related to it. (A writing project that mixes supernatural mystery and sometimes horror.)

The box is SCP-001. SCP is for "Special Containment Procedures."

The box is SCP-001.

Are you sure?
