Review - Cabin in the Woods


Joss Whedon is a name most people are not familiar with... unless they have seen his work... like one of the greatest TV shows on Earth, Buffy the Vampire Slayer... or Angel, or Firefly, or Dollhouse...

But Whedon's name is going to explode in a big way this summer, starting with his horror movie homage, The Cabin in the Woods... and then The Avengers...

Cabin tells the story of five college kids, taking a break from it all and heading for, wait for it... a cabin in the woods, for a spot of R&R... little did they know, they have been chosen for a higher purpose in life...

Some people might be turned off by the two parallel stories... one - the kids in the woods... second - a bunch of coats in some kind of laboratory... hmm, I should not continue, dun wanna spoil it...

Some of the Buffyverse actors made an appearance in the movie... Me, being a big fanboy, was squealing in delight when I saw Fred and Andrew... and of course, the entire movie was like a page out of Buffy or Angel...

Like I said earlier, it's an homage to horror movies... but it is still a horror movie... and a creature feature... actually Cabin has everything in it... horror, drama, comedy, action, thrills...

Not being biased here, but this movie is awesome! Wiping drool now...

This is a hell of a fun movie that features twists that got better and better as the film went on. It’s crazy that horror films can be this fun and entertaining just by smart and witty writing. However, it won’t last for too long so we might as well enjoy it while Whedon and Goodard are around. Good review.
