    A bizarre remix of horror tropes combining sci-fi with horror, as an honest love letter to the horror genre as a whole. In order to satirise something well you are best off having some affection for the subject matter. While this film takes more than a few stabs at the state of the horror genre (and certainly "Cabin In The Woods" is more of a comedy movie than a horror movie itself) it is still strong horror fans who will be in the best position to appreciate the joke.

    The Cabin in the Woods is a ground-breaking horror that reinvents the genre and turns it inside out, proving that sometimes showing how the trick is done is just as good as the trick itself; and as for the final act...prepare to be amazed.

    Slasher films, almost inevitably these days, run off the same tired formula. It’s to the point of being their very nature. But occasionally, we’ll run into something smart and well-made, but it’s become so sporadic and inconsistent that I’m surprised that the horror fanbase hasn’t rebelled or caused mass anarchy—justifiably so, mind you. Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard take their mayhem to the screen and make The Cabin in the Woods crazy, entertaining and smart. It feels a lot like…

    Sheer brilliance. What a hysterical and delightfully twisted homage to classic horror films but also a reminder of why modern horror movies have given the genre a bad name (and it does so eloquently and subtly). So many terrific character moments. I think I'm in love. This a film I'll be re-watching for years to come and is one I'll never get sick of.

    Neat trick, making a horror film simultaneously geared towards both those who love and despise the genre.

    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…
