I had the privilege to watch The Cabin In The Woods last week. Let’s just say I was blown away. There hasn’t been a type of movie like this before. It is definitely one of the best horror films of the year so far!

Horror fans will be pleased with this movie from director, Drew Goddard. Drew and Joss Whedon wrote the movie together. We all know Joss who has written amazing shows such as Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse and even Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Drew wrote shows like Alias and Lost. So, they both have a huge fan base from their works. So, viewers are already guaranteed to watch this movie. You may recognize some of the cast in their previous works like Amy Acker and Tom Lenk! So, it already has the making to become one of the best horror films.
The movie has everything we have seen in past horror films. So, you will get everything you love about horror films including all those stuff that makes you roll your eyes and scream at. The catch is that the movie is really all about killing and that is what horror fans love to watch. Seeing the people get murdered and watch them scream! Guessing who will be killed and who will survive. Horror films are our guilty pleasure for a reason. One can say the movie was a tribute to them. The movie even references a list of horror movies. You even get the little long hair Japanese girl making an appearance including other iconic horror film characters. We are the audience in the movie watching The Killing Game. The movie is definitely on my horror movie list! Hope it will be on yours too. Watch the trailer below:
The Cabin In The Woods is currently playing in theatres! Make sure to check the movie out since it will be one of the memorable 2012 horror movies. For more details, visit the official site
