I will start by saying that I’m not a big fan of horror. I like the occasional horror film, but it’s never been a genre to float my boat, and then have zombies climb aboard, and sink the boat while they eat my brains.
Cabin In The Woods is not your average horror film. It was written by Joss Whedon (Toy Story, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Firefly) and Drew Goddard (Buffy, Lost, Alias) and directed by Goddard. Obviously two talented writers who have already given us some great and original genre fiction.
The film circles around five university students who hop into an RV and head to a… cabin in the woods. OOOO! They, however, are being watched. Bets are being placed, their paths are being planned, for some sinister game the audience is not privy to.
The film is fabulous, the film is creepy, the film is clever, the film makes you contemplate. You don’t know who to cheer for, you don’t know how you want it resolved, but when the resolution comes it’s fulfilling.
Go see this.
I want to see this movie more often than I can afford to see this movie. It needs to be out on DVD last week.
