Becky and I went to see the movie, The Cabin in the Woods at the AMC Theaters in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at The Cabin in the Woods describes the movie as follows…
“Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out…”
The Cabin in the Woods is the second remake that we got to see this Weekend, the first being Lockout that I wrote a review about that is basically a remake of Escape from New York and now the campy 80’s flick Evil Dead in The Cabin in the Woods.
Evil Dead was a terrible movie the first time and it was even worse in this rendition. The Cabin in the Woods can be summed up in one simple word – “terrible”. We should have walked out on this one for sure. The movie is really bad and yet so many fans love it and it has had great reviews. Why? We do not know.
I’m always up for a good spooky supernatural type horror film, like the Ring, Drag Me To Hell or Paranormal Activity and I even thought the film Scream was original and spooky. This film is just a total gore, slasher type movie with a really stupid plot that apparently horror fans thought was really creative. It’s a bit like Hunger Games meets Evil Dead, where there is a sub-plot of scientists, controlling the cabin in the woods where the five guests will be sacrificed to the ancient gods. There is even a cameo appearance by Sigourney Weaver, but that couldn’t save this movie.
Becky and I both hated this film and it turned out to be a complete waste of time. We can’t recommend this even as a good rental. It’s definitely in the category of Don’t Bother, like really don’t bother.
