In this twisted thriller from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, five friends arrive at a secluded cabin with clear instructions for their anticipated mountain getaway. But when the rigid rules are broken, punishment is swift — and everyone will pay.
Cast: Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Brian White, Amy Acker.
I am a fan of Joss Whedon’s. I was first introduced to his work in September 2002 with the short lived TV series Firefly. I then started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and later Angel. Most recently I enjoyed 2012’s “The Avengers”. I enjoy witty dialogue and clever plot twists. I have yet to be disappointed in anything he is associated with.
Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford are a hoot in this. I was so moved with Richard Jenkins’ performance in North Country it was fun to see him have fun. A very prominent, successful actress associated with Joss Whedon’s movies made a surprise guest appearance towards the end.
I am not at all into slasher movies. I’ve seen a bunch in the 1980’s and have no desire to see any more. I would not have watched this movie if it wasn’t for Joss Whedon’s name. I had such a good time watching The Cabin in the Woods. I went in knowing this isn’t real and could never happen. Some might categorize this movie as mindless fun. I am giving this one 3.7 stars. I liked who surprisingly emerged as the male hero in the end.
