Rated R · 105 minutes · 2012

Comedy, Horror
This crazy film comes from writer/director Drew Goddard and co-writer Joss Whedon, Whedon being the father of TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and hero to geeks everywhere. The film is quite clever—maybe a little too clever at times. The setup sees a typical sampling of college students getting ready for a vacation at the lake. They are Curt the Jock (Chris Hemsworth, aka Thor!), Dana the Almost-Virgin (Kristen Connolly), Jules the Whore (Anna Hutchison), Holden the Hot Nerd (Jesse Williams) and Marty the Wisecracking Stoner (Fran Kranz). At the same time, we see two working stiffs (Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford) reporting to their very peculiar jobs. The film works as both a straight-up horror film and a funny homage to the genre, with plenty of great reveals and twists along the way, including an awesome final cameo.

Colorado Springs Independent Mad masterpiece: The Cabin in the Woods I know countless variations on the phrase "ultimate horror film" have been thrown around before. But I can't see how any movie is more worthy of that claim than this movie. by MaryAnn Johanson 04/11/2012

Charleston City Paper The Cabin in the Woods holds glorious surprises If anything became clear when The Cabin in the Woods started getting early screenings and playing at film festivals, it was that the first rule of The Cabin in the Woods was you do not talk about The Cabin in the Woods, and the second rule of The Cabin in the Woods was YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT The Cabin in the Woods. by Scott Renshaw 04/10/2012
