What in the hell!!! Cabin in the Woods is an amazing film. Seriously, I haven't been blown away by a movie since, well, since yesterday when I watched The Raid. But in terms of horror movies, Cabin in the Woods definitely gets a huge thumbs up.
Funny thing is though, I bought it from my local Blockbuster. There is a guy in there who says he used to write for Gorezone uk, and he asks if I've seen the movie yet. I said no (I don't attend the cinema much) and he proceeded to tell me how much of a good film it was. He then tells me "It isnt a horror film". I look at him puzzled. "It's a Sci Fi film" he says. I just smile, not wanting to disagree and taking into consideration his mentioning of Joss Whedon producing, so what did I expect (I think he managed to forget about a little TV series called Buffy the vampire slayer).
Having now watched the movie, I have no idea how he came to the conclusion its a Sci Fi movie. Now I do understand everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but seriously, have some basis for what your opinion is. There is no science involved in Cabin in the Woods. No robots, no aliens, no spaceships, not anything that could even be hinted at being Sci Fi.
This movie had it all. Laughs, zombies, werewolves, a giant mutant bat, even a sly homage to Pinhead from Hellraiser. Being a geek only made the experience more enjoyable as I was able to laugh at how things were happening, and all the knowing nods to the trappings of the genre we all love.
And the ending??? HELL YEAH!!! It wraps up the crazy final twenty minutes perfectly. All in all, a classic in the making. Go see it!!!!!
