If you’ve been reading my blog for a longer time, you know that I’m not too fond on watching horror. I wasn’t planning on watching this movie, until I saw it appearing in various lists bloggers were writing about the best movies they watched in the first half of the year. Knowing that Joss Whedon was involved I decided to give it a chance.
This is one of those movies that is best to see knowing as little as possible. I can say that it’s about a group of students who go into the woods to stay in a cabin, but that there is something strange about this cabin. The movie is filled with horror clichés, but manages to give it all a unique twist. This movie reminded me of Tucker and Dale vs Evil as it makes fun of the genre and does so in a way I really loved. I’m sure I must have missed out on a lot not knowing the genre well, but I had fun watching it.
Cabin in the Woods is not your typical horror movie and that’s the reason I really enjoyed it. The cast perfectly play the stereotype roles they are supposed to and something which I also enjoyed are the parts where Richard Jenkins appears. I would really like to say more about specific parts in this movie, but it would spoil it too much. I can say one thing though, go check this movie out if you haven’t done so yet.
