The Cabin in the Woods (2012) Review

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. That’s the description released by Lionsgate, so does it it live up to its hype? Well I went to see the cabin in the woods recently and so I can safely state that yes it certainly does and I give it my recommendation for people to get to the cinema and watch that film as soon as possible. Tim’s Film Reviews Recommended


The Film is so good that I will not be stating any spoilers because it should be truly enjoyed. The film starts off very much like a horror flick with a fantastic flare of comedy and dark comedy alike, the horror aspects of this film where actually very well directed and will make you jump in your seats but also look fantastic for the films budget of only $30,000,000 which you will get when you see the movie.

Must Watch Trailer:

The characters are surprisingly well performed by the cast and where written as actual people who you could relate to which I think is always important when they will be going through hell and back in a movie and they certainly do in this film. In this movie you can see some of Joss Whedon Buffy humor presented which works very well in this production as one of my favorite lines would be the pot smoking cousin saying “Oh I had to dismember that guy with a trowel” one of many darkly funny moments from the characters.

The Sci-fi elements of this movie are best left to watching as talking about them will be a spoiler I am afraid but I will state that its a fun experience and that what Sci-fi elements there are will not be as important as the trailer will lead you on. This films will definitely make an impression on everyone who sees it and would recommend it to a broad spectrum of people whether its for gore soaked horror or side splitting dark comedy it works on many levels.

I will be releasing more reviews and more recent films I have seen in Cinema.

To see more reviews I would recommend the site Rotten Tomatoes:

    Good review. I liked this one so much because it was a horror film that was able to go the extra mile just for a laugh, or a scare and it worked the whole way through. Hopefully more people go out there and see this, and don’t just look at it as if it was just another horror flick that bores people to death.

      It was good and refreshing after nearly a decade of torture porn like the saw franchise but also kept a kind of inner joke going fantastic piece of work. Thanks viewing and keep following blogs, oh and sorry for late response your comment went into spam for some reason.
