The Cabin in the Woods

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

Woohoo - happy 1001 posts to me!!

It was a rainy winters afternoon today, perfect to sit through two film festival movies in a  row.  The other two I have been to I have felt like one of the young ones in the crowd, as it has been filled with retirees.  This movie crowd was different, it was all freeks and geeks and fifteen year old school boys in their uniforms (and the old middle aged ladies like me).

So you know the story, five nubile young college age students head off in a RV to the remote cabin in the woods for a weekend away.  Being a Joss Whedon movie though, there are a couple of twists, making it more than your average horror.  In our audience, there was a lot of cheering and lots of laughter.

There was lots of running around in the movie, axes and blood, lots and lots of blood.  If you don't like horrors maybe stay away.  It may be perfect for your zombie, freak loving teenager however.  3/5
