Believe it or not, The Midnight Society did discuss whether or not a cabin was the same thing as a house. It was unanomous that a cabin could be considered a house–technically–which is why I’m posting about one of my favorite horror flics.
It’s perfect in every way.
See what I mean? From the trailer you can see that not only is Cabin in the Woods bloody, but there’s also a little science fiction mixed in there. And it’s all rounded off with some nakedness, a dash of humor, scary monsters, and campy horror tropes. What else could you ask for in a horror movie?
Cabin in the Woods was written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, each of which has their own style. You can definitely pick out special things that are characteristics these brilliant men. And as per Joss’s usual, there are three of his Buffy/Angel/Dollhouse regular actors cast in this film.
There are also a ridiculous amount of connections between this film and countless other horror movies. If you want to read all about these check out IMBD’s Connections page.
If you love horror films, this is one that you shouldn’t miss. And always remember to be careful when entering the woods…especially if there’s a lake and a cabin!
