Cabin In The Woods - saw it last night. Whilst it's not strictly a zombie movie, it is most definitely a horror flick and does have zombies in it.

Anyone else seen it? I thought it was bloody good. It's most definitely not your run of the mill, brain-dead slasher film, although seeing as it's co-written by Joss Whedon that shouldn't be too much of a surprise.

Oh and the best line:
"That's not fair! I had zombies too! "

"Yes, you had "Zombies." But this is "Zombie Redneck Torture Family." Entirely separate thing. It's like the difference between an elephant and an elephant seal."

"It's most definitely not your run of the mill, brain-dead slasher film."

If that came from ANYONE ELSE I would demand what your problem is. But it's you. Therefore your death will be quick and relatively painless. Is it on a par with "The Cottage"? Just so I can file it away as I won't see it for about three years. Or "Dead Snow" for that matter? For the LOLs?

No no no......don't get me wrong, I love brain-dead slasher films, particularly on a Friday night accompanied by booze. But no, while Cabin in the Woods is partly a slasher film, but it's also about slasher films and particularly why most horror films are made to a different formula around the world. Trust me it's worth watching.

It also has in it characters which are a homage to creatures from at least 100 classic horrors (I assume as close as they could make them without being sued). There are probably more, but it will require a DVD and a pause button to spot them all. I did particularly like Fornicus, Lord of Bondage and Pain (see below).

Just saw it this evening. It wasn't as good as the hype led me to believe, but it was certainly very good nevertheless. And I was told I wouldn't expect what it was about, and that was totally correct.

I dont generally follow the hype, I'm on here to often to watch tv. I think that is why I enjoy a great many movies my friends hate. Hearing that this movie is a homeage to the slahser films gives me a bit of hope for it; I wanted to see it but it didnt really jump out at me ya know??
