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…
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.
I went in knowing virtually nothing about this film. I don't even think I saw a trailer for it. If I did, I probably shrugged it off as some generic horror flick. All I knew was that it was written by Joss Whedon and it had been delayed ever since 2010. I expected nothing but hopefully fun generic horror flick. What I got was something far from generic. I think this might be the ultimate horror film.
It's hard to review this film because this is one of those films that you must go in completely cold on. Seriously, know nothing going in. No trailers, hell no reviews. I'll just try to sum this film up...it's excellent. This film successfully…
The movie thats not a horror movie, but a movie about horror movies, made especially for fans of horror. What purposely begins as the most routine of generic American horror films, is just that... But with the catch that the entire set up is a set up as we see a white collar task force controlling every plot beat that the traditional horror scenario(stupid teens arrive at a secluded forest cabin, ignore the warnings of an old disgruntled coot, begin getting horny at the mere thought of being in danger). All in all, the teen's choices lead up to a family of hillbilly zombies "rising" out of the ground... Then death happens and well, this is literally all I can…
Interesting.. yeah I'll give you that!
Did it live up to the hype.. NO it did NOT!
Every time I read another orgasmic review I have to ask myself questions like...
1. Are we talking about the same film!
2. Were they on drugs while watching the film!
3. Do they work for Whedon!
4. Is Whedon The New World Order!
5. Will the Bee Gees start singing Joss is the word!
6. Are the unwarranted, overly zealous reviews the result of exposure to a new bio-chemical warfare agent!
7. Is this a biblical sign that the end of the world is near!
Didn't love it, Didn't hate it!
As far as the Over the Top reviews go... I just DON'T get it!
- If you love sucking Joss Whedon's dick (aka a Whedon stan), you'll love this movie.
- If you think you're a special snowflake in the horror community because you only watch "unique" horror films, you'll love this movie.
- If you fall into the above two categories, this review isn't for you.
Like many horror fans, I was really excited after hearing about this movie. I was told it's a diss to torture porn and a parody of the horror genre yet there weren't many jokes or a message... just a bunch of bullshit.
Scary Movie is a parody of the horror genre. A Serbian Film is more of a jab at torture porn and it's audience…
Fun time with a very Whedon-y concept; but only occasionally transcends the genre its spoofing. Works really well when it's paying pastiche homage to All Horror At Once, and the system shutdown alone is worth the price of admission. Makes massive perspective errors in regards to its high concept, worst of which is probably the early reveal of the force field, which turns what ought to be a shocker into a slow build to a sort of hilarious lurch toward the inevitable. Revealing the truth about the cabin before revealing the cabin is bold structurally but kills both suspense and the disorientation that would have allowed them to build to a crackling frisson between the horror and the meta. I…
Super-enjoyable horror fun. And a massive call back to the end of Buffy season 4.
I have to admit, that was one sexy moose.
Demosle la vuelta a las películas de terror y hagamos algo original. Y hasta ahí puedo leer.
Aqui esta um filme estúpido (o bom é que dá para rir um pouco) e muito mal feito.
