We hope to provide consistent, useful and entertaining content that will have you coming back again and again.
To start things off, we’re going to share our overflowing thoughts regarding a little film, known as Cabin in the woods! Joss Whedon’s new horror flick somewhat overshadowed by its box office big brother The Avengers, we’re here to be bring it into the light. Also as stated above a “SPOILER WARNING” is in affect you have been warned!
Opening credits role passed and the story begins with Thor(Chris Hemsworth) and his friends, a group teenagers, raring to go and ready to sin preparing for their trip out to a cabin in the woods. You’ve heard this story before so many times…..or have you. What unfolds is a brilliant mix up of every horror movie you ever saw supported by great writing, cast and direction.
Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford are sublime as the Mermaid obsessed evil science nerds(Confused, just go watch it!). The somewhat odd, Stoner hero of the piece has some of the funniest lines this year in movies. Not to mention odd little segments such as the Wolfs head make-out scene(it’s so wrong but its…..so hot?) and the Geek-gasm many will feel upon unexpectedly hearing Sigourney weavers voice! Only add to the rich tapestry that is the film.
Easily the best movie of the year so far, it generates quite aggressive reactions in us to people who didn’t like it (known from this point forward as Morons). It has become our version of the “Voight-Kampff” empathy test, and yes, it means if you don’t like it you must be a replicant. This film is a destined cult classic. Below you will find our little addition to the movie experience in the form of an accompanying game (adaptable to – drinking game), Cabin in the woods horror movie bingo. Just to add something extra to the multiple viewings you will undertake. This will help future viewers to enjoy the homage to evil dead and a zillion other horror movies held within.
