A Cabin In The Woods - an All Of The Above review

Directed by: Drew Godard
Written By: Joss Whedon, Drew Godard

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins

'Cabin In The Woods' is a horror film unlike any you've seen before. A story about a group of college kids consisting of hot girls, a jock, a semi-attractive book-worm and a stoner spend a vacation at a cabin in the woods to have good old fashioned fun until bad stuff starts to happen....okay so you may have seen this before but not quite like this.

It's hard to talk about this film because it's got so much in it that I don't want to spoil for you. It's funny, has a few jumps and more twists than.....something twisted. Without giving anything away, the group unknowingly choose how they would die from a plethora of amazingly cinematic ways.

There is some really great acting and some very good direction coming from D.Godard along with great effects. The characters are a great nod to the stereotypical horror film and Whedon and Godard let us know that throughout the film.

'Cabin In The Woods' can only be described as 'The Truman Show' meets every type of horror or slasher you can think of.

I highly recommend this film and try to watch it knowing as little as possible about it.

5/5 stars
