The Cabin in the Woods
If you hear a strange sound outside... have sex
Five college friends spend the weekend at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.
Formula. Every film has one. Watch enough films and you learn the formulas, perhaps even subconciously; and it can ruin the film for you. It drains a film of tension, it makes a film predictable. And in no other genre is the formula more apparent than in horror.
The Cabin In The Woods (TCITW)has a formula too. It is no different to any other film in that respect. But while your Texas Chainsaw Massacres and your Excorcists and your Last Houses On The Lefts say 2 + 2 = 4, TCITW says, "Yes, it does equal 4 but did you know that this 2 is actually 0.5 plus 2.5 minus 1 and the second 2 is really a shit ton…
Everyone said it just gets better with repeat viewings and this is where I give all of those people an enthusiastic fanboy high five because it's so, so true. I am almost certain I enjoyed The Cabin in the Woods more last night than when I originally watched it back in 2012.
Others have said that dissecting horror films has been done before and while I'm inclined to agree with that, I'm not sure it has ever been done as well as it has here. In taking the perspective of the "ancient ones" and those trying to please them, you can't help but see the parallels to genre fans. We know all about the tropes in horror films; the athlete,…
This film tries to put its tongue in its cheek so hard it has left a big, gaping hole that should have been filled by a great film.
Let me start off by saying that I actually like Whedon's work. Most of the stuff he's done is quite enjoyable. Here, however, he is at his worst. Every single twist, turn and reveal felt like him screaming at me: 'Hah! Look at how clever I am! I am reinventing the entire genre!'
The problem with Whedon's script is that he has actually written two films. One a rather funny, sometimes hilarious comedy. Two, a boring and generic horror film. Somewhere in between lies the idea of a great film, which is…
This is not your average horror movie, and in no way is that disappointing. If you're someone who doesn't care much for horror, I still think you'll enjoy this film. If you're a horror fan, you're in for a real treat.
Intelligent, hilarious, but still downright creepy, The Cabin in the Woods is a must.
La mejor sátira/reinvención del género desde Scream, la parte de Comedia y Ciencia Ficción me parece que funcionan perfectamente, no tanto así la de suspenso (en ese apartado creo que la de Craven funciona mejor dentro de todo este sub-genero de reinventar el terror), me lo he pasado tan bien que incluso le perdono los excesos y las excentricidades de su tramo final.
Lots of fun, but it's always a problem in Hollywood when the premise is Real People in a Movie Situation, and yet the characters just seem like movie people and not like anyone I've ever met.
Das was an diesem Film wahnsinnig gut ist, ist die fabelhafte Geschichte die er erzählt, die genauso absurd wie faszinierend ist. Das altbekannte “Fünf Jugendliche machen einen Trip zum Haus am See im Wald” wird von einer neuen, originellen Seite aufgerollt und perfekt inszeniert. Wir erleben hier das programmierte Grauen, die alte Horror-Waldhütten-Geschichte als Teil eines großen Plans. Sogar das “Wir sollten unbedingt zusammenbleiben” wird charmant auf die Schippe genommen. Sein einziges Defizit im Vergleich zum neuen Evil Dead (ja ich liebe den neuen Evil Dead) oder Drag me to Hell, ist der Enthusiasmus der Hauptdarstellerin. Dieser unfassbar energische und alles zerstörende Überlebenskampf war hier leider kaum vorhanden, allerdings ist Kristen Connolly schauspielerisch auch nicht mit Alison Lohman oder Jane Levy zu vergleichen.

Am I on speakerphone?"
This horror movie seemed quite generic and boring when it was released, but i always hear good things about it so i figured i'd give it a chance.
The plot of this film is a lot better than i first thought. Where it seems like a generic evil dead type horror, it's actually got a very unique plot that i thought was both ingenious and hilarious. I won't spoil it because it's best to go in blind. However everything comes together very well in the end and unlike the middle part of the movie, the ending was something i definitely…
amit a scary movie eltúlzott, az itt éppen szükséges mértékű volt
Had no pressing urge to ever revisit this, despite really liking it, yet some friends put it on the other night and damned if it didn't still entertain the hell out of me.
- A Trip to the Moon
- The Great Train Robbery
