The Cabin in the Woods

Theatrical release poster
The Cabin in the Woods is about five friends spending their vacation in a remote cabin in the woods and bad things happen; zombies rise from the grave. First impression, you've seen it before. Bad things happen in House of Wax and zombie kills in Dawn of the Dead.

It seems to start out as a typical horror film but the killing zombies are part of an operation by two technicians of an unknown and complex industrial facility, which raises questions throughout the movie. That’s how the movie actually starts out instead of descending to good looking actors being killed of the film. If the movie feels typical in some way, then it’s one filled with actual scares.

Luckily all will be revealed at the end and The Cabin in the Woods goes from shocking scares to all out gore, which makes this film suitable for horror fans that likes being scared as well as corpses. Full of twist and turns as well as strange but astonishing creatures, which includes a scary clown, The Cabin in the Woods is more than just a typical zombie flick. It’s a refreshing take on a well-worn genre and probably the most original horror movie in ages. For some, it may be an unpleasant experience for about one and a half hour.

In conclusion, The Cabin in the Woods is full of shocks, surprises and even laughs on occasion. If you’re an audience looking for something new and inventive, then The Cabin in the Woods is the movie for you. If you’re a horror fan, then you won’t be disappointed. All in all The Cabin in the Woods is one of the best horror movies in years, one that’s made for a wide audience but obviously one who is age appropriate or has the stomach to watch a horror movie.

9/10
