World War Z is nothing special but it’s alright and whilst I won’t be seeing it again I don’t regret seeing it today. The story is the weakest part but the characters and acting was pretty good, some moments even made me laugh, sadly this was not on purpose and I nearly cried of laughter. Some warnings going into this film are that this isn’t a horror film nor is it an outbreak film, it feels more like an action thriller that happens to feature Zombie esq people (They shouldn’t run or climb). Anyway this review will not be a happy ordeal and I plan to put a few spoilers around the place so watch out for them.

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 live up to its hype? Yes, yes it does.
