About The Cabin In The Woods
Beloved nerd icon Joss Whedon (creator of 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' and 'Firefly' and director of 'Avengers Assemble') co-wrote this mind-scrambler with 'Cloverfield' writer Drew Goddard. Five young people, who seem to embody such classic horror movie archetypes as the jock (Chris Hemsworth) and the sweet, sensible girl (Kristen Connolly), go for a trip to a cabin in the woods. Then strange things start to happen. But what starts as a run of the mill slasher movie scenario becomes something much more bizarre. To reveal more would be to spoil the film, which has been getting plaudits across the board. Managing to be a spoof, homage, love letter and deconstruction of the horror genre all at once, it will be appreciated by fans who have grown tired of repetitive found footage scares and torture-happy invincible killers.
