::stands up:: I'm ******** and I'm a jaded horror fan. Good, we got that out of the way. So, where to start...cuz I really f&*^ing loved this flick. I do not easily heap praise on horror films nowadays. They are mostly throwaway pieces of garbage with little to no redeeming qualities. But this film did it right. Granted, I wasn't scared in the slightest, but who cares when the film gives you such a a great world to imagine? On the surface, one would think this was the standard slasher movie, but you'd be completely mistaken. This movie deconstructs the stereotypical slasher flick, and then creates a world which gives nods to almost every horror genre out there. I mean, what horror flick recently has given nods to Barker, Lovecraft, and Japanese horror? None that I know of. To top it off, it's pretty funny (though I noticed some of the younger folk didn't catch some of the references), and there's no ####### ending. Color me happy, for once.

Finally something that isn't the same horror movie you see over and over and over and .... well you get it. It starts off the way you think it should, I mean nowadays the preview tells you the whole damn movie! But not this one.....It totally takes you to a place you didn't even think of. Great surprises, funny dialog, and a ending that you would have never seen coming! GO SEE IT!

May look familiar...until you look closer. Besides, Thor's in it!

This was supposed to open more than two years ago, but was held up by MGM's finanical probelms, and a short-lived bid to convert it to 3-D. Still, The Cabin in the Woods is worth waiting for because it takes the typical horror movie and sends on a pretty weird ride. Of course, you've heard the same comments about you shouldn't learn too much about the movie, avoid spoilers and so forth. We will say it does include Chris Hemsworth way before he became a thunder god, and Fran Kranz as a stoner who turns out to be sharp at the right time. There's also Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins who have their roles in all this. It does involve cameras. We'll say that much. The movie was directed by Drew Goddard, who wrote Cloverfield, and written by him and Joss Whedon, well-known as the guy who gave us the greatest TV heroine in the past 20 years..and more than that. Check it out, guys!

This was so much fun to watch. I was afraid that by seeing the preview that there wouldn't be any thing left. Boy was I wrong. I took my daughter and her boyfriend with me and really enjoyed it. Oh, and the "stoner guy" was the best!!

Quench Your Thirst

By Reel Reviewer
Written April 17, 2012
Arguably the single most creative and ingenius movie I've seen since "Inception." Nothing like what I expected and yet it quenched a thirst I didn't even realize I had: the need for the next step in horror. We experienced Saw for awhile, till it became torture porn, but despite the successes of the "Paranormal Activity" series they aren't exactly a new idea. THIS, however, is enjoyment in its pure form. It's hilarious, suspenseful, has an attractive cast, stays true to classic horror stereotypes and is completely refreshing and new. My face hurt from smiling and laughing, my teeth hurt from clenching them, my heart was racing from the tension and my brain exploded from too much awesome at the royal rumble that ensues at the end. If you don't like blood, stay away, but if you don't mind it I highly recommend it; even if you're typically not in to the horror genre.
