    When I first saw it:

    Five friends go to stay in a remote cabin, unaware that they're about to become the targets of a remote, cold malevolence. So far, so what, am I right? But this mind-bogglingly post-modern film inverts the concept, to hilarious effect. The whole thing ends up being a fast, funny riff on the standard old horror tropes. To me, it dragged a bit when it was playing out as pure horror, but the witty critique side…

    I've seen this so many times. Still works well (especially since I've not seen it in awhile).

    This film manages to be funny an scary at the same time which is something most horror films can't accomplish. Although Cabin in the Woods is more of a comedy then horror, it still has plenty of shocking moments. This is a film every fan of the horror genre needs to watch!

    Horror movies from the last twenty years really aren’t my thing. I’m a scaredy cat, but so many of my film friends urged me to see this one because it apparently had a different take on the genre. The more you don’t know about this film going in, the better. I even came into the film looking for the “tricks” and it left me in a state of unpredictability. In all the right ways, I could have never guessed where…

    Joss Whedon’s talent for writing funny and sympathetic characters who subvert initial expectations comes across well here, and the five young people who stay at the titular cabin are all fun to spend time with. The characters who work in the facility are also well done, getting you interested in exactly what is going on with the simulation (which is not a spoiler, since it’s obvious from the very outset).

    The problem with this film is when it starts killing…

    User reviews - not professional ones - are super mega polarized with regards to "The Cabin in the Woods." I found it to be a genius of a movie. The way it satirizes a great many horror clichés is just too smart to let it pass unnoticed, and though the plot twist in the last 15 minutes is a bit of a bummer, it's a must-see for movie addicts.

    OR"HOW TO TAKE THE FUN OUT OF GENRE CINEMA" step one put it in a context to where you can safely defend it in a mubble-mouthed academic way: a generic explanation of how the horror movie is a way of purging our demons. The kind of movie idiot dweebs can attach themselves to because its speaking to them and telling them theyre smart for "getting it." Its a deconstruction alright. A deconstruction of how to zone out and enjoy a…

    while i resect the film for trying to break the mould, in all honesty i just find it all a bit too self aware and smug for my liking. not to say i also don't find it entertaining, but sadly i find it a bit hard to get as excited about its originality as everyone else.
