Best Horror Movie of the Year

Ditzy blonde who gets hot and horny for her alpha-male jock boyfriend? Check. A rustic and isolated locale with no cell phone service? Check. Creepy, deadly things that go bump in the night and terrorize a bunch of clueless college kids? Check and check.

In the Joss Whedon-scripted, Drew Goddard-directed horror-comedy The Cabin in the Woods, all of the slasher movie stereotypes are presented to us in typical fashion – and swiftly dispatched and turned inside out halfway through the film. There’s Curt, played by a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth (the film was shot in ’09), a hulking bro of a dude who just wants to have sex with his hot girlfriend (the bimborific Anna Hutchison), Holden (Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams) the quiet scholar with a crush, Dana (Kristen Connolly), the “virginal” chick who just wants to take a break from studying and enjoy a weekend with her friends, and Marty (Dollhouse alum Fran Kranz) the shaggy-haired loser who may not be your average pothead.

This may seem like an Evil Dead/Cabin Fever/Friday the 13th rip-off, but think again...

My review on Cabin is in. Check out the rest over HERE.



Thank you.
