The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

Five college friends spend the weekend at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.


It could have so easily been about gambling and entertainment (similar to the entertainment value of watching gladiators die) which would have explored the evil and greedy nature of humanity, instead they use the "sacrifice for elder gods" premise, giving the people underground an excuse to carry out the tasks and turning this great idea into a boring and ridiculous mess. The very end was also extremely lazy and forgettable.

Good Idea, bad execution.

Definitely not what I expected- but I definitely enjoyed it. Takes the typical "teens in the woods" scenario… and throws it out the window. Worth a watch. Even if you find yourself predicting some of the plot points along the way, there's no way you'll guess everything.

Mix of different genres inside what still is a horror movie. Really original, left me feeling like I saw something new, which is always a good thing.
