This was quite a pleasant surprise. Loved the characters and the ending.
Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes The Cabin in the Woods, a mind b... read more

FIve college kids go to a remote cabin to party but find themselves the rats in a maze constructed by a mysterious group intent on their gruesome demises. The Cabin In The Woods is very much in Joss Whedon's familiar territory of ironic pastiche, featuring the usual gang of jocks...

You think its one particular genre and then bam hits you with stuff you weren't expecting!
I love Joss Whedon and you definitely know its Whedon, it is amusing so it is a dark comedy and it takes the traditional and predictable horror genre and twists it on its back. Entertaining...

This movie was perfect. Such a creative story! Every time something awesome was happening, I kept hoping against hope it was going where I wanted it to. And it did. I was continually and joyously surprised by how fun this film was.

Produced by Joss Whedon, directed by Drew Goddard (in his debut), and co-written by the two of them, this is a wonderful celebration to all types of horror movies. Not only is homage paid to the genre and subgenres, but they all get trned on their head in one of the best and most...
