VIEWED: The Cabin in the Woods

My recommendation for this one was:

"It would likely cost millions, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to build such an elaborate torture cabin. Who would build such a thing? It's either government or aliens because, frankly, supernatural forces just don't have the technology or financial resources to build that type of cabin in the woods. I'm really curious to see this one because there must be more here than meets the... um...trailer."

There was more then met the trailer...  much more.  I can't say how much without spoilers but I'll say that  maybe government and supernatural forces are closer than we think - at least in The Cabin in the Woods.

So what's the verdict?

It was a kind of parody on the genre, using humour and horror in a way that may make fans of the genre look at cliche horror films differently.  I guess one could say that Whedon and Goddard's, The Cabin in the Woods is a game changing film.  Whether that's good or bad is yet to be seen - when the next batch of horror films are made.

Definitely worth seeing, even out of curiosity.
