The Cabin in the Woods Reviews

Laura Kern
Film Comment Magazine

Taking its cue from Michael Haneke's deeper, crueler Funny Games, The Cabin in the Woods explores why we-sicko viewers-take pleasure in the suffering of others.

One hottie, one cutie, one stoner, one jock and one intellectual go to a remote cabin in the woods. If this sounds like a setup for a joke, well, it kind of is.

An original and audacious horror-comedy that oftentimes works better than it should.

This is a movie that knows it is capitalizing on the clichés and stupidity of its genre, but refuses to bow to the same simple-minded standards to achieve something more

The Cabin in the Woods is crammed with so many twists and turns that the mere thought of reviewing it and ruining the fun for others is scary in and of itself.

The Cabin in the Woods manages to throw the horror and comedy genres into a blender, and the result is a delicious product that's ridiculously fun and warrants watching at least once.

The pleasure in The Cabin in the Woods comes from its audacious tuggings-away of the dramatic rug under your feet.

Daily Star

Taking a leaf out of Scream director Wes Craven's book, Joss Whedon both uses and skewers horror film clichés for this enjoyable tongue-in-cheek slasher.

The Cabin in the Woods is a horror movie about horror movies. Except not really. It's a horror movie about what horror movies do for us, about why narratives of horror mean something to us.

A fiendishly clever genre Rubik's Cube that demonstrates, if nothing else, how much Fangoria fare benefits from the wicked wit of a real writer.

Like Scream before it, the film is a simultaneous dissection and celebration of all the tropes to which it pays homage, while also managing to be a superb example of the genre in its own right.

The Cabin in the Woods is a quick-witted, mind-bending fright fest. A truly rare and original horror film.

In a year that's looking to have a very strong lineup of horror and genre movies, it's very likely that The Cabin in the Woods will come out the king of the hill.

The result is a film that might be too smart for its own good, a piece of meta-fiction that's all meta. The Cabin in the Woods isn't trying to scare us as much as it's trying to enlighten us about being scared, then settles for amusing us about it.

It's not often you can really get a new twist in genre, but this horror movie actually managed to rewrite its own rules thanks to an underlying nihilist sensibility and a fearless approach to formula.

Whedon's and Goddard's screenplay reads like both a love letter to horror movies and a good-natured treatise on what's wrong with them.

While this film is not for everyone -- those who like their slasher film cliches without irony shouldn't bother -- anyone who likes brains to go with their blood are bound to appreciate what Whedon and Goddard have conjured.
