    ¿Ago nuevo?, siiii.
    No deja de ser un cocktail extraño entre "El show de Truman", "Posesión infernal" y "Razas de noche", pero bien agitado y bien servido.
    I like it.

    bem bolado... bem bolado...
    Um terror com todos os elementos clichê (casinha assombrada na floresta, universitários bonitos e burros, etc, etc) mas com um resultado longe de ser clichê. Diversão garantida.

    i didnt ever notice before that the stoner dude locks his car door by sticking his hand through the open car window in his introduction scene. which is strange since i've seen this movie about nine times

    One of the few "horror" movies that I truly enjoy, although that's probably because I don't really like horror movies at all, and this is not a full fledged horror movie, and more like some sort of weird Sci-Fi/horror genre bending movie.

    Why nobody ever thought of this kind of metafiction love letter to horror movies is beyond me, but here it is. The Cabin in the Woods gives you an awesome behind the scenes look at the real reasons why horror movie kids act like retarded sheeple in most slasher films. It's entertaining and engaging on all fronts. Joss Wheedon's storytelling ability is allowed to shine through by great directing from Drew Goddard and an awesome ensemble mix of Wheedon's regulars…

    “Cabin in the Woods" is an interesting film rather than a good one. In essence it makes the case that there is a whole lot more going on in horror films than appears on the surface and that a deeper level of meaning is contained within even the most banal of horror fare. It appears to present this as a newish concept and that may be so for the mainstream, but for genre fans and genre critics this idea of…

    Horror films, particularly the slasher genre, have become so formulaic that film makers either ignore it altogether (sometimes in vain) or they spend just as much time in their films winking at the audience in an ironic fashion as they do actually engaging in said formula.

    Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard choose something of a middle route with The Cabin in the Woods. They acknowledge that, yeah, this genre is cliched and pretty much down to a pat science,…

    Really satisfying, surprisingly--sort of seems like the very first horror movie to be like "Okay, we get it, horror movies have become self-aware to a degree of constantly winking at the audience, we can move on and use this knowledge in an interesting way instead of just simply as irony," which I think is a thing that really needed to happen in American horror; like, architecture & art & to a lesser extent even literature realized that this sort of shit was…

    I love this film for the unique story line and the direction it was going. It was a fun horror (not scary) movie. I would have rated it a 5 if the ending was different. I had expected more from the ending then just the two crying holding on to one another as a giant hand appears..... :/

    Now let's be straight. This film isn't creepy whatsoever. But it has an incredible concept and it is executed greatly. But there are horror movie cliches such as the jock, the cute guy, the virgin, the stoner and the sexually active hot girl. But Richard Jenkins is great and it has a great twist and a great ending and you can actually laugh sometimes.
