Quick Review: Cabin in the Woods

You may be thinking, why didn't I just use a pattern in photoshop?  And to that I say, shut up.

Cabin in the Woods is a genre-bending horror film staring Chris Hemsworth and Bradley Whitford and written by Joss Whedon. It starts off as a generic horror film about five kids going off into the woods for a party weekend, and then it gets weird. It was made in 2009 and wasn't released until now because I'm sure the studios didn't think people would see it (since it's so weird) without first mainstreaming Hemsworth and Whedon.  And they are probably right, because this thing is twelve shades of awesome. There's no way I can review it properly without ruining the whole premise, but just know that it's funny, has a perfect script, is always entertaining, got tons of gore, and the most amazing third act battle you'll see in a horror movie ever. No, it is not a regular horror movie, and that's why it's so great.

Overall: $$$$$ See it multiple times!


  1. "...twelve shades of awesome." Totally agree. the deconstruction of the genre was mind blowing.
    love the underground title in the sketch and the ghost exiting the chimney.

  2. It is! I can't watch any horror movie know without thinking back to this.
