Wow; this movie was definitely not what I expected. It reminds me of the first time I watched "From Dusk to Dawn" - several distinct parts of the movie that take some wicked turns.
Definitely a different twist on the horror genre. The last third of the movie was intense - loved it!
Oh, and I wouldn't mess with that frog! ;-)
Outstanding. Managed to see this on the Silverscreen - very lucky!
A horror film that is more psychological thriller than horror. There are some interesting elements in the mix but fails to truly rise to the occasion. I wanted a Promethus-like moment of 'meeting the gods' that didn't exist.
Achei uma bosta..
I’m gonna come out and say it. The Cabin in the Woods is a straight up masterpiece! A must see for every horror fan that has ever felt bored or irritated by the over use of cliches left over from the 80s. While most discussion around this film tends to revolve around the genius call-backs to classic horror films and Easter eggs but I believe focusing on these elements does a disservice to the film as a whole. This is far more than a serious of Easter-eggs. All of the horror elements are genuinely effective (especially Jules’ death scene), all the humour lands perfectly and the third act says everything that Goddard and Whedon wanted to say about the horror genre. “We would rather let everyone die than let the old gods have their way.” It is a truly remarkable film that needs to be seen again and again to be fully understood and appreciated.
"I'm sorry I let you get attacked by a werewolf and then ended the world."
I love that this can take a genre with so many clichés and just flip everything on its head. The third act is so bat shit crazy, I love it! Richard Jenkins is a delight to watch.
Very Boring and extremely overrated.
This movie was one big WTF moment! xD
Good movie! I was kinda disappointed at first for the beginnings seems more like a comedy than a horror movie but it gets deeper as the story goes. Definitely worth checking out.
I love the background concept of this story sooo much and am also a big fan of supernatural beings and mythology so I really want to give this a 4 but ironically I’ve just never liked the whole group of friends going out to some far off area to let loose and then get terrorized genre. Also, I know it was a bit intentional, but the main characters were so bland ‘cept for Shaggy and since that was like the main plot of the story I just can’t bring myself to do it.
A film for anyone who has ever complained that they don't make good, original horror films anymore.
Sus ojos, ciegos, no han visto los horrores que les esperan. Sus oídos han dejado de escuchar. Ahora, están a merced de Dios.
I believe this will be the final film of the 31 Days Of Horror, unless I get really ambitious. It's been a fun month!
Normally not my kind of movie, but I watched it because of Joss Whedon.
It gets pretty interesting after ~45 minutes.
Definitely not what I expected. Might even want to add "Comedy" to this one. If you're expecting a scary/horror movie by itself you'll be disappointed; if you kind of know that it's mildly scary with a sort of 80's, campy-ness you'll enjoy it much more. The plot is actually pretty cool and I could see the same storyline being great if done more in-depth by a true horror movie director/writer.
Nonetheless, I can see this movie having a bit of a cult following down the road.
Surpreendente thriller de suspense e horror, vale pipoca, luz apagada e refri.
Take a new and refreshing look at horror movies and totally screw it up by explaining the plot twists and secrecy while unfolding the story. Defenitely a big disappointment as far as suspense and story-telling goes.
A modern classic in every respect!!
As a huge Joss Whedon fan, even I can admit I have no clue how anyone enjoyed this.
Título: La cabaña en el bosque
It would've been nicer without the Gods part. As in Hostel the amusement park.
This might just be the weirdest movie I have ever seen. It starts as a typical slasher movie - or you think - but quickly turns into some sinister version of the truman show mixed with the hunger games and it ends in some next level craziness!I can't quite wrap my head around what I watched but I did like it, minus the ending though, didn't really care for the Gods who will destroy the world idea. Everything could have been sort of 'realistic' (I thought those monsters where possibly robots or something) and then that happened...
Some on point humor and a very interesting plot idea. But ultimately the "horror" part bored me, like it pretty much always does.
This is a great movie,a couple jumpscares but with a few laughs in the middle it makes it really enjoyable. Acting is really solid and best of it is how unpredictable it is.I saw the trailer and thought i basically knew the story but man its full of surprises,even while i try to predict whats happening next or whats gonna be the outcome i still didnt get a single thing right.Great to watch if youre into horror films and looking for something a bit different.
A Horror film that deliver the predictable and the opposite of horror films. Awesome movie! Really recommend it.
There are so many genres this film fits in, and fits well into. It can be considered a comedy, science fiction, or even a fantasy film of sorts. And, I would agree with the other commenters when they say this is more of a thriller than a horror film. When it started, I thought it was more of a comedy more than anything, but it quickly and efficiently got to the main meat of the film.
Although I really liked the aesthetic of the poster, I was given the expectation of something different. That said, however, I was certainly not let down by this incredible movie.
I thought it was interesting that there existed a world-wide organization set up to appease the ancient gods. Each culture they showed had a unique way of accomplishing the same goal, and Japan even appeased their god without sacrificing a bunch of kids. I found it weird that that was still considered a failure.
I had the impression, leading up until the final moment, that the wolf and admin being thrown into the pit would have counted towards the "fool" sacrifice. I suppose that was designated for one person, and the world ended up being destroyed by the creature attached to the giant arm. After that, it's very open to interpretation what happens next but I'm pretty sure it's doom. HA!
Overall, though, the cinematography was nice and the story did a good job of progressing quickly, without seeming like it was "all over the place." The genre assignment could do with some revision, though I can't pinpoint a single, specific one. Perhaps thriller? The acting was good and awesome seeing Thor in this, even if he did die rather quickly!
Cliche horror movie that mock cliche horror movie
Well that was surprising. Definitely NOT expecting this ending: it's not exactly a horror movie, it's more like a parody, or... a "comedy" horror movie? Anyway, really liked the character played by Fran Kranz (high guy).
that was an absolute horror movie indeed,i liked it so much although those gods giant evil we didn't see them!
Routine can kill You ;>
Holy moly, that was awesome!
What a fun ride! Loved it! Joss Whedon can do no wrong.
On a day I needed a good laugh or two, it delivered.
This film has to be admired for its creativity. The Cabin in The Woods has definitely one of the most original stories in horror films ever. The concept is really cool but I am not so sure about the whole other aspects of the film...
I can't tell if the acting was just poor or if this was trying to be a B Movie, if that was the point I did not laugh even once. I found most of the scenes just stupid and that might be also the point but... I don't know, the truth is that at the end I didn't know if I even liked it or not and that's not a good sign...
I've seen that a lot of people love this film and think it is awesome but I think it's too weird, too bizarre and afterall turns out to be not so surprising has I thought it would be throughout the story.
Sorry fans, I respect your love and I can actually understand why all the hype about it but unfortunately it just not worked so well for me.
BEST horror and comedy mixup, soo awesome idea of movie, and really OSOM ending :) Mine best horror/action movie :) enjoyedthis very much.
Manages to fuse horror and comedy with a touch of sci-fi. By no means is it a great work of art but is a really entertaining and cool movie.I loved how the movie completely changed about an hour in and still felt right.
Now, what do you think you will find in a cabin in the woods. It's just like those idiots that get off the highway and take the back roads. Either way, you'll get what you deserve.
I couldn't figure why there would be three guys and two girls going to the cabin, but I guess the stoner is only interested in one thing.
Zombies! It has zombies. Yeah.
But, Drew Goddard (writer and director) and Joss Whedon (writer) have surprises in store for us. Technology geeks (Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford) are part of a whole crew that is behind the scenes manipulating what is going on in the woods. Why? A reality show? Some weird science experiment? It's a cinch that this is not your daddy's zombie in the woods flick.
Kristen Connolly and Fran Kranz make this film work, especially at the end, which we totally did not see coming.
Trash Horror Comedy - I´m a bit confused now... :D
Storyline very tin.... Nice effects and girlies nothing more....
Definetly not what I expected (and I knew a great deal about it before-hand), but classic Wheadon nontheless. Great fun.
Did we all watch the same movie?? How are people giving this a 10????
Not your usual horror flick, but definitely worth a watch!
Never saw that one coming, lol.
Not scary movie , but it's great
Wow... Great blend of a mild horror movie AND of subtle parody of them...
Haha, good fun.
what is this I don’t even...
Not really an horror movie, but the idea is good.
I liked the idea of the movie... Something different... I sure did "WTF" the whole time.
Very good film, but a serious WTF movie lol.
Very nice plot twisting indeed! But he's a bit, well... egoistic at the end ;)
Best horror movie that I seen for last 12 years. God bless Joss Whedon for such genial and amazing writing.
"The Cabin in the Woods" is a horror film that takes every considerable horror film idea from the past, and creates an enjoyable and entertaining blend that really takes you away from the simple/usual plot at the beginning of this film. The story takes a very surprising turn and really delivers. Mr.Thor chris hemsworth does an acceptable job in this film butthe story is what makes this film entertaining. Definately worth checking out.
Can't go wrong when Joss Whedon is writing. Just tons of fun!
Really a new-thinking horror movie. Loved every bit of it!
Expected DVD release: September 18th 2012
Nice twist on horror movie bit.
Really great spin on the same old format.
Just about to watch this. :-)
