REALLY liked it. It's definitely strange, but that's a big part of what I like about it. And, c'mon, it's Joss Whedon, who didn't expect high strangeness? I like it more the more I think about it, too. So many layers. So many easter eggs for hardcore horror fans.

I wouldn't say it's TERRIFYING, but it's at least as scary as a lot of other entries in the genre, and it really takes its surprises and twists to the max. Even when you can tell SOME kind of surprise is coming, you'll likely be wrong about what form it will take. I may even bump another movie off my 25 favorite horror movies countdown to make room on the list for "Cabin In the Woods". MAYBE. I have to see it again to be sure.

But hey, even the fact that I want to see it again is a pretty good endorsement, I guess. I know some people are confused by this movie on some level or another, but it all went down pretty smooth for me. It messes with you, but I feel like it also lets you in on all its secrets by the end, in one way or another. Though I also have a feeling a second viewing will reveal even more. Definitely original, definitely smart, and sure to be influential.

This was the best film I've seen in theaters in a Long time. I loved the many nods to Evil Dead (Did anyone else notice "Angry Molesting Tree" on that whiteboard?), Hellraiser, and Lovecraft. (Possible Spoilers from here) Some of the creatures were awesome, like a "Pain-worshipping Zombie Family", Giant Spiders, Snakes, Evil Clowns, More Zombies, Ghosts, Robots, Masked Lawyers, Ancient Gods and more. Let's not forget the cast, The Virgin, Athlete, Scholar, Whore, and Fool (the "Fool" is the best, providing comic relief, usually though the use of his giant bong...). Of course all Hell breaks loose at the end, making me a happy camper (no pun intended). Even with all this, the thing that disturbed me the most was the celebrations held by the staff... :plastered: Overall I thought it was great, although it's completely impossible to not sound like a raving lunatic while describing what happens! :HellYeah:

I rather enjoyed this film, while there were things borrowed from other films, i would say that it was different and made for a great movie experience. I waited for this one for some time and after all the hype thought it would disappoint but I am glad to say that it didn't (at least not for me).

My entire review would be too long to post here but I have an entire The Cabin the Woods review up on my site if you are inclined to give it read - http://reelybored.com/reviews-2/the-cab ... or-review/

I saw a night showing of "Cabin" last night, and I really enjoyed it. There's something about the movie that I've always wanted to do, and to see that someone has thought of it and made it before I have kind of sucked, but the movie was completely amazing, and I loved it. Joss Whedon's Cabin in the Woods is a movie that will stand the test of time, and it's its own subgenre in horror.

That movie was great. It was not a graphic slasher or even a deep striking psychological horror film. It was just a fun film that played on viewer's expectations. I will be watching this again.
