A rambunctious group of five college friends steal away for a weekend of debauchery in an isolated country cabin, only to be attacked by horrific supernatural creatures in a night of endless terror and bloodshed. Sound familiar? Just wait. As the teens begin to exhibit standard horror movie behavior, a group of technicians in a control room are scrutinizing, and sometimes even controlling, every move the terrified kids make! With their efforts continually thwarted by the all powerful eye in the sky, do they have any chance of escape?
I’m a huge fan of Joss Whedon, so when I learned he had a new movie coming out, I had to see it. The Cabin In The Woods is a cross-genre show. It wasn’t really a horror story or a scary movie, but played to both genres. If you expected either, you might be disappointed. The less you know about the movie, the more you will enjoy it.
Like most classic shows, you have the jock, the good girl, the beauty queen, intellectual, and the stoner. As you might have guessed, the sexy Chris Hemsworth played the jock. I loved his character. Very masculine and macho. Co-stars Anna Hutchison and Kristen Connolly played equally sexy rolls for the guys to enjoy. Fran Kranz played a key roll in the movie and kept me laughing! Believe it or not, he’s the person you want with you if you ever get caught in a horror movie.
