  • The Cabin in the Woods

    Top 5 Reasons To Watch Reindeer Games:

    5. One of the dumbest, most convoluted 'twist' endings imaginable.

    4. Isaac Hayes' most inexplicable film role. It's baffling.

    3. Charlize Theron

    2. "I want some fuckin hAAt chAAklAAt... and some pecan fuckin pie."

    1. Dennis Farina's inexplicable false teeth.

    A truly breathtaking mess of a motion picture.
