It’s a concept we’ve all seen before… Teenagers going away for a weekend to a far-off, dark and dangerous destination, preferably somewhere in the woods. On their way there they usually end up at a ‘gas station’ where there’s no one or the owner is a complete whack job with an earring and a bushy beard.
Unfortunately ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ isn’t far off and rides the wave of this stereotypical horror movie phenomenon.
What it’s all about:
Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.
Following this we see a cellar door flying open by itself (the characters blame the non-existent wind), where they find a book. After one character reads from it, they awaken a family of deadly zombie killers who rise from a hole in the ground. The movie reaches a peak when the characters have to run for their lives.
For me personally, the concept is bizarre and instead of being scared, I was laughing. With this being said, the movie scored a rating of 7.3/ 10 on IMDB.
Watch it if:
*You enjoy horror movies with a twist
*You like Zombies (who does?)
*You don’t want any sleep and get a series of nightmares
Don’t watch it if:
*You’re scared of Zombies
*You don’t enjoy this overused concept
*You didn’t enjoy movies like ‘The House of the Devil’, ‘Drag me to hell’ or ‘Trick ‘r Treat’.
*You don’t have good sleeping tablets.
