Liz Campbell (Wooden Overcoats, No Space for Heroes) and Zac Fortais-Gomm (The Orphans) return to Flixwatcher to review Zac’s choice The Cabin in the Woods. The Cabin in the Woods is a 2011 horror/mystery/sort of comedy. Directed by Drew Goddard with a screenplay from Joss Whedon it also features an early Chris (Thor) Hemsworth performance. The Cabin in the Woods begins like many other teen horror films with a group of college students who decide going away to stay in a remote house in the middle of nowhere. Ignoring the warnings from weirdos they quickly become part of a game that is much bigger than the viewer (probably) expected. The premise is that they are all part of a ritual to appease the blood gods and Sigourney Weaver (in a fun cameo) and messing with this will unleash every monster imaginable. The Cabin in the Woods has some fun playing with typical horror stereotypes and but in over winking at the audience it neglects the audiences interest in the outcome of the characters.
[supsystic-tables id=139] A mixed film - it does some of the horror well, some parts are pretty funny (Curt’s death) and the monsters in the monster store are pretty creepy - but it asks too many questions and it feels a bit half baked. The reaction from Flixwatcher and guests was also a bit mixed, The Cabin in the Wood scores 3.84 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen The Cabin in the Woods? What did you think?
