"Cabin" is so bent on switcherooing the heck out of us that it ends up resembling a TV soap such as "Glee"...

All the actors do a decent job with whatever is thrown at them -- usually sharp objects.

Horror cinema subversiveness need not preclude actual horror, a fact that's unfortunately lost on The Cabin in the Woods.

... dumbass slasher-movie hokum ...

Movies that mean to deconstruct movies seem to be made solely by and for cinema vampires, those ghost-faced geeks whose pallor is rarely challenged by exposure to the sun.

[VIDEO] Before you waste your time and money on this cinematic mongrel, check out "Mindhunters." It's not a perfect slasher picture either, but it's a damn sight better than "The Cabin in the Woods."

It's hard to overlook the transition from smart to smart-assed and the dispensation of credibility for a weightlessly nihilistic punchline.

Unless you're a Whedon buff, wait for DVD.

It aims to play fast and loose with the splatter formula.

There is a scholarly, nerdy, completist sensibility at work here that is impressive until it becomes exhausting.

Meta musings leave this reviewer cold

The setup is intriguing but the balance feels off. Goddard and Whedon overplay the winking postmodernism.

The only comedy-horror that ever worked was An American Werewolf in London - and it worked because it was about character.

This movie borrows elements from several genres, throws the concoction into a blender and what comes out is a dish that is edible, but too soggy to enjoy. Too hipster and meta for its own good.

More than anything else, Cabin feels like the endgame of so-called fanboy culture in the way in which it is first and foremost about itself, interested only in a fundamental adherence to rules of its own devising and fenced off from the world at large.
April 10, 2012
An entire row of what they call "fanboys" at the screening I attended laughed all the way through the movie, although I failed to see anything remotely amusing.

This movie has its tongue so firmly in its cheek, it's poking through and making a really nasty hole.

really just another instalment in the live-action Scooby-Doo franchise

...enough unemployed characters from Whedon's failed series Dollhouse to staff every Abercrombie & Fitch in Beverly Hills.

The Cabin in the Woods revisits the formula that lets viewers feel superior (in terms of knowledge) and also anxious (because of that knowledge).
