So, I Watched "Cabin In The Woods" Yesterday...

HOLY CRAP!! This movie has more twists and turns than the Autobahn! The synopsis on Yahoo couldn't be more right; "Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again."

I went into this knowing absolutely nothing about the film, other that half paying attention to the trailer once or twice. It just seemed so straight-up slasher formula, that I didn't even notice it, really. But it was a rainy Sunday afternoon, my son wanted to see it, it looked better than "The 3 Stooges", and I really had nothing better to do.

It starts out very true to the tired formula, but it's intertwined with these very perplexing scenes from what looks like average workers in some type of government-looking facility. As the film continues, I made many assumptions as to what was happening - all of them quickly proven false. Even toward the very end, I looked at my son and said; "I still have no idea what the Hell is going on!"

The ending is something I would have never seen coming in a million years! This is easily the most original fright flick I have seen in a VERY long time, and I could not recommend it enough! In fact, I'm going to take my wife to see it asap!

  1. I went in the same way. I'd only seen half trailers on the tube, and for whatever reason, didn't read anything on it before just deciding to go... and Holy Shit! When it started I was thinking, "Am I in the right movie?" But then the title screen hits like a bat to the dome and it gets nuts!

  2. I know! When the title hit, I was like; "is this a comedy?" it didn't take long to realize that this was in no way a comedy!
