The Cabin in the Woods review

Hello guys and girls today I went to the cinema and yes you guessed it, I watched The Cabin in the Woods.

Initially I didn't want to see the film, as the trailer led to me believe it would be another film about teenagers going into a house and being killed in a brutal manner.

But to my surprise there was much more to it, the best way to think about is to think of the evil dead in modern times with someone pulling the strings.

The audio levels were excellent along with the acting (which is rare for your ordinary horror flick)

The story line was something your custom to nowadays, therefore you believe you wouldn't be surprised, you couldn't be more wrong  ; heres an extract from IMDB telling us what the story line is.

If you don't want to see the storyline I would recommend you close your laptop cover and pretend this doesn't exist.

an industrial facility, two technicians are preparing for their day on an unknown operation. Meanwhile, five friends are preparing for their trip to a remote cabin owned by Kurt's cousin. On the way, they stop for gas and have an encounter with the strange local who owns the gas station. While drinking and relaxing at the cabin, they discover a basement filled with interesting artifacts. Written by Kad 

OK perhaps I exaggerated a little , now back to the review.

The film was shot and directed in the norm of horror films except for the last 20 minutes which separates the movie from the rest (which i personally loved)

Now the characters are a mixed bag for more info on the characters I recommend you go on IMDB

So what did I like , well lets see

  1. The story line
  2. The acting
  3. The way it's directed
  4. The mix of characters
  5. Some parts made me jump

What I didn't like

  1. The movie does get a bit random
  2. Some scenes were laughable (If you see the film you'll know what i mean)
  3. It was a 15 which didn't allow the movie to have anything extra gory in it.

So there's my quick review on the film, no spoilers but a nice short review.


Rating 8/10

Quick side note the stoner in the film looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo(the guy on the right hand side).
