Have a vague memory of an American film, possibly from the 90's about computers that became aware. Might have had some vague horror elements to it and the 'computers' were like shiny cubes.

I thought it was called Chronos but can't find anything under that.

    Is it possible you're thinking of the movie Kronos? It's from 1957 and the antagonist is an alien robot rather than a human-made computer that becomes self-aware, but as mentioned in this review, the robot looks like "a pair of black metal cubes stacked on top of each other, separated by a stout chrome cylinder". So even though the movie doesn't fit very well there's enough similarities I thought it worth mentioning.

    That duplicate is for the book, not the movie. I guess that’s close enough...
