The Cabin in the Woods: A New Concept in Horror Films

I saw The Cabin in the Woods on Saturday and it blew me away.  More than just your normal run-of-the-mill horror movie, this movie introduces a completely new way of telling a horror story.  I have to admit I was quite impressed and equally entertained.  I cannot go into detail for fear of spoiling the movie for you, but let me just say that it pushes the envelope.  It has not only the appeal of a horror film, but it boasts a mythological standpoint, along with the gore...and there are a few laughs in between.  If you have not yet seen The Cabin in the Woods, I highly recommend you do so soon.

Watch the trailer on YouTube HERE.

About the movie:
Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.

Directed by Drew Goddard.  Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard  Starring Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, and Anna Hutchison. (from imdb)

  1. Okay, I love horror movies, but half the time they're pretty disappointing. And this one was marketed like your typical slasher porn movie, but it's anything but that! I too was blown away. I can't wait to own this one and make every single person on the planet watch it. ;)
