Cabin In The Woods

Cabin In The Woods, A movie about a group of college kids who go to a remote cabin and deliver lines like “No matter what, we have to stay together,” sounds very familiar. “Cabin in the Woods” is like a thousand teen chillers we’ve seen before. Just add in a secret government agency, ancient evil life forms and other surprises and the film delivers the best mash-up of horror and humour since “Scream.”

As the story unfolds five college friends go to a cabin in the woods. That group includes a jock, a scholarship jock, a stoner, a brainiac and a party girl.

Once these pals arrive at cabin all hell breaks loose. All the conventions of the teen horror genre are here, but turned upside down.

There has never been a slasher flick quite like “Cabin in the Woods.” The subversive mix of horror movie lore and gruesome gags isn’t new, but rarely has it been this smartly presented.

Like romantic comedy, horror is a genre that frequently takes the easy way out. By the time we got to “Saw 3478: A Stab in the Dark,” the movies were more about how many gallons of stereoscopic blood could be squirted toward the audience than creating a new, intriguing story.

Conversely, “Cabin in the Woods” screenwriters Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard (who also directed) have crafted a film that is exhilarating in the way it adopts and challenges the conventions of this genre. They results are hilarious.
