    Default The Cabin in the Woods

    I've been putting off watching this for quite some time, because I initially thought it would just be some dumb "cabin in the woods" horror because of the name.

    I finally gave it a chance last night after seeing a trailer for it. Now I regret not having watched it sooner.

    Anyways, anyone know of any other forms of fiction with a similar backstory as this film?

    I thought it was a mediocre movie for mediocre people.

    Interested in why I picked these books, or want to recommend me some more? Just pm me. I love books.

    I thought your opinion was mediocre, made by a mediocre person.

    i haven't seen it but my understanding is it's a horror movie but it's not a horror movie but it is and it's super meta. right?

    Yeah, it's not what it initially appears to be. At first you'll think it's a typical crappy horror movie. Then you'll think it's one of those comedy-horrors. And then, eventually, you'll realize what it's really about.

    I enjoyed it, I was actually glad it ended up not being yet another "horror" movie like the rest that come out these days.

    I'm looking at you, "You're next", you overhyped piece of shit.

    It's what some people refer to as a "fun flick." It's the type of movie that's not meant to be taken seriously in any way.
    If you don't now what to expect, you'll hate it. I did the first time I saw it.

    It's got a neat idea and it's well done for what it is, but it's not nearly the incredible, mind-blowing masterpiece people tell you it is.

    I didn't know it was possible to go on the internet in the past 2 years and not have the plot of Cabin in the Woods spoiled for you.
