The Cabin in the Woods

When you hear the premise, you may be tempted to think that this is just another slasher film. I mean, I've seen the Cabin Fever movies, and they certainly aren't everyone's cup of tea. Well, this starts with the usual cast of jock, stoner, brainy guy, virgin, and slut. so... not promising then, eh?

Well, this is one of the best movies released in 2012. It was directed by Joss Wheden, and Joss does a heck of a job when he tries to do something different. Reviews of this movie are difficult, as there is an underlying difference in this movie that changes the landscape entirely. The problem is, it is better if you don't know what that difference is when you go to see it.

My friend Rick asked if it was a parody, but it's not. It's more of an exploitation of all of the other movies that have a similar premise. It builds on what you expect from this kind of movie with a bit of humor and unexpected twists. Oh, and it's got the guy who played Thor.
