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…
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…
- 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…
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…
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.
La cabaña en el bosque (The Cabin in the Woods) *** (6,5)
FICHA TÉCNICA.- Director: Drew Goddard. Intérpretes: Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Jesse Williams, Fran Kranz, Anna Hutchison, Brian White, Amy Acker, Jodelle Ferland. Guion: Joss Whedon y Drew Goddard. EE.UU. 2012. Terror. 95 min. Adultos.
El estadounidense Drew Goddard —productor ejecutivo de las series televisivas “Alias”, “Lost: Missing Pieces” y “Perdidos”— debuta como director con esta singular película de fantaterror, coescrita y producida por el neoyorquino Joss…
I don't like horror movies. This movie was no different except that it made me laugh a few times. Whedon was certainly present in the production and I enjoyed that bit of it as the cliches and typical plot points were satirized. But I still hate horror. The generous rating is because The Cabin in the Woods makes fun of horror movies, thus elevating it to my favorite of the genre.
The movie has a bad start. Like, really bad. Then it gets almost good. Then it's bad again. The only thing really worth watching is actually the funny bits in the control center between the two guys running the show.
Other than that, keep your distance from it.
The film's broad induction of natural law, Nietzschean dynamics, meta-miscellany, and conflicted audience psychosis leaves one wondering if the fan-boy creators are trying to say anything definitively. But Whedon's script milks the premise to absurd, albeit tidy ends, and it's noticeable how good the dude is at amassing genre play into one given moment, viz. the blonde's make-out with the werewolf is about as simultaneously sexy and stressful as one scene can be.
