The Cabin In The Woods

What not to say: The Cabin In The Woods isn’t just any old cabin in the woods. It’s not even a traditional horror movie cabin in the woods, complete with a zombie redneck torture family, angry molesting trees and sexy witches: it’s a cabin in the woods with the possibility of zombies, wraiths, mutants, mermen, demons, clowns, scarecrows and a whole lot more – as well as a zombie redneck torture family, angry molesting trees and sexy witches.

But this so-called cabin in the woods is actually a sort of sacrificial altar run by a group of cynical technicians to appease the “Ancient Ones”, apocalypse merchants who live under the facility and agree to not destroy the earth only if certain young people die in a certain order at a certain time. How they get killed is up to their free will – when they head to the cabin's basement, the trinkets they play with dictates who’s going to be murdering them horribly – but this particular group breaks the system when a couple of survivors head into the underground base and cause havoc.

Cabin In The Woods

Did we see it coming? With the meta-horror waiting three years to hit cinema screens, anyone desperate to find out more about it probably could, and its viral marketing campaign was clever enough to point people in the right direction without overtly telling the world what was what.

The trouble is that almost the whole film is a spoiler, so with that in mind, anyone trying to get friends to go see the film would be hard-pressed not to let a little bit slip. The trashing of the technical facility section, however, should still have shocked the undercrackers off even the most suspecting audience members.

21 M's Career Path
kind of sad to see m's career path from GE to SF. from her no nonsense authority in the brosnan years to being second guessed, intimidated by politicians, methods scrutinized and called into question. at least she went in style in the field. More
