Anyway moving on to the movie I actually came here to talk about 'The Cabin in the Woods', which I went to see a few nights ago. As the tagline states "You think you know the story", the decades old story of a bunch of sexy teens off to spend the weekend in a secluded cabin in the middle of hicksville, just off inbred lane. STOP!! because you don't know the story, convention has been thrown right out the cabin window - this film is not your typical teen horror.
I don't really want to say too much about the movie as I don't want to give anything away, but you can look forward to a surprising cameo from Sigourney Weaver and a really mean unicorn. There are a number of shocks, big ones, and a hefty dose of gore, but also a refreshing amount of comedy and 'WTF' moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Co-written and directed by Drew Goddard and co-written and produced by Joss Whedon, yes that is the 'Buffy' guy, it stars Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Jesse Williams, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz and Amy Acker - a great ensemble cast.
I leave you with the trailer and a plea to go and see this movie, just so we can tell each other how epic it is :)
Have any of you guys out there seen the movie yet? Or perhaps you have seen something recently that you think is worth recommending? Let me know.
