The Cabin in the Woods Movie Review
Five horny college students go to a cabin in the woods. You know what happens next. Or not. A perfect example of don't judge a book by its cover, or a movie by its trailer, The Cabin in the Woods is one of the most entertaining, strange, absurdly awesome horror movies to hit theaters in the history of cinema. It has its scares, but it's also hilarious, and most importantly, it is completely unpredictable in all the right ways.
To delve into the plot would ruin this gem of a movie, which has to be seen to be understood. I rarely walk out of a theater bubbling with excitement, let alone the urge to immediately watch the movie again, but The Cabin in the Woods offers just such an experience. It's incredible it sat on the shelf for three years, but better late than never.
Rather than draw this review out, I'll cut it short and leave you with this: go see The Cabin in the Woods now. Like right now. Like get-up-from-what-you're-doing-even-if-you're-at-church-or-watching-your-grandchildren-or-watching-a-baseball-game now. Now*.
*That means right now.
