The less you know beforehand about this movie, the better! This horror movie is pitch perfect in tone and wit, with a deftly smart script that will keep surprising you at every turn. The performances are very good, the special effects are outstanding and the storyline is highly original while at the same time spoofing the cliched trends and plot contrivances currently found in horror movies.
All you need to know about the plot is that 5 friends plan a weekend trip to a remote cabin in a quiet wooded area. They end up finding more than they bargained for. Granted, that short plot outline doesn't sound very appealing, but from the opening scene you'll be aware that this is not your usual "scary movie".
The script was written by Joss Whedon (director of The Avengers and creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly) and Drew Goddard (screenwriter on Lost and Cloverfield), so they have the perfect credentials to elevate this beyond the norm, and believe me, this movie is anything but "the norm". One of 2012's best surprises! (5 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)
Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen.
If you think you know the story... Think again.
From fan favourites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes The Cabin in the Woods, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.

Good concept - weak storyline
Fri, 5 Jul 2013 | Review by: Con R
This has a very eerie start-up, as most movies have, but once you grasp the plot and things take full swing the film just falls apart. Not good at all
