To steer clear of spoilers is tricky. Suffice to say that certain ideas are drawn from a 1998 flick, adding substance to what's usually brainless. Whedon and Goddard provide us with exactly the moments and elements we've come to expect. But they go one further, asking: Why is it that we as an audience need these tropes to be present and correct? Even if the deconstruction aspect isn't your thing, the finale expands and delivers more geeky awesomeness than any genre fan could ask for. I loved it.

Epochal. First, there was horror. Then there was Scream, and it effectively created the metahorror genre. The Cabin in the Woods is the end of all things, the Omega of Horror. It puts the nail in the coffin that Scream built. SEE THIS MOVIE NOW.

Finally all the hours I've spend watching horrible horror movies is justified by this near perfect genre spoof, that takes the meta-horror sub-genre to its logical conclusion. It's perhaps a bit light when it comes to actual suspense/horror, but it sure is enjoyable nonetheless.

to avoid patronising horror aficionados, metahorror needs to fully understand and evoke the empathy and terror of its sources, satirising from within rather than providing winking (& reductive) commentary from a superior remove. 'cabin...' holds itself up as quintessential, but it's too mediocre a horror movie to say anything about the love of *good* horror movies, devoting more energy to its deconstructive contextual framework than exemplifying the appeal of the genre it's supposedly skewering.

I sat in the theater with a big dumb grin on my face and nearly killed myself driving home as I sent texts to everyone I know telling them to go see this movie. I can understand people liking it less than me, but I don't really see how anyone could hate it. Unless they think fun is bullshit.

The more mediocre, cliched horror movies I watch, the more I admire Cabin in the Woods. A brilliant concept, and a dead-on deconstruction of the genre. I could have used a bit more tension and genuine scares, and the post-modern self-awareness occasionally rubbed me the wrong way, but you have to give this credit for taking the genre parody to the next level, and for being exciting, hilarious, and enjoyable.

I was lucky enough to see this upon initial release and avoid spoilers. This was a super fun time and felt very original with its new turn on the genre. Once things start getting weird, I couldn't look away. Kristen Connolly was very good. The bird of comedy and satire in here were great too. The ending is kind of cool, but that last conversation they had does leave a bitter taste in my mouth. Still, this was pretty entertaining and well worth a visit.

The only way to describe this is as a modern day horror classic with a Lovecraftian twist. It works as an entire homage to every horror film every made but yet cleverly avoids breaking its own mythos or ruining itself with too much self awareness. The cast is wonderful and is stereotypically exactly what you expect in a film with this title. You have to really love the genre to enjoy this for what it is. The only flaw is that the plot may have worked better as a slow burn reveal.

...fuckin eh. That's honestly just the best way I can summarize the amazingness that is "The Cabin in the Woods". From the 70's style title screen and its perfect placement, to the movie's epic concept and equally-epic execution, I found absolutely nothing to hate about this self-aware masterpiece. Casting is spot-on, writing and dialogue is unbelievable, monster design is top-notch, and at the end of the day it's one of the most enjoyable watching experiences you'll have all year and beyond.

Cabin in the Woods relies on a sort of hip acknowledgement by the audience of the classic troupes and cliches of the horror genre to realize its humor and also the few points in which it flips these old standbys on their head. It's neither ridiculous enough nor brilliant enough to truly ascend above the films it satirizes, and as a result the whole thing just comes off as one big smug, masturbatory inside-joke amongst Whedon and his lackies, though I did enjoy the last 20 minutes of the film.

An imaginative attempt at subverting the horror genre. The concept is impressive, even if the execution perhaps doesn't do it justice. It maybe suffers a bit from being too obvious on the satire and references, and not bold enough with the horror and/or fun. That said, there is plenty to like here, and there is rarely a dull moment. Pretty good, and it has Richard Jenkins in it, so that's something.

Behind a generic title is a multi-layered satirical horror that defies expectations, pokes fun at it and breathes new life into the mainstream horror genre. Almost everything works. The characters are generally likable (which is more than you can say about many contemporary horror films of its ilk), which breeds empathy. The kills, gore and atmosphere are all done very well and the chaos comes on strong at the right moment.

A movie made for people who actually like movies, it's just a lot of fun. The ending is great and ballsy and the characters are awesome. The merman scene was classic. I love how it relished in its own cliches and played them up only to do a complete 180 and be something completely different. The most fun I've had at a theater in a long time.

As a self-proclaimed aficionado of so-bad-they're-good horror movies, I can appreciate what my buddy Joss is trying here (okay, he's not my buddy). However, while trying to make fun of certain genre tropes (aka: ehrmagerd, ghernre trehrps), he ends up falling victim to the most common, like 11th hour winded monologues explaining everything to those who weren't paying attention. What, you say? That was on purpose? The best way to parody a trope is to use the trope itself!? Well, color me Whedon!

Plays well with the very concepts and notions that make up the teen horror movie. It's smart, gory, if not actually particularly scary or jumpy, and probably works best as a comedy more than as anything else. Fun, but no groundbreaker.

Oh, what's that, Whedon/Goddard? You've lumped all the regular and well known horror staples and cliches together and added awkward attempts at humor, all while being self aware?! How witty! Or maybe you're just fucking parasites. Ironically, the only time I enjoyed myself was when it wasn't trying to be original or satirical, but even 'that' part was ruined by CGI. Maybe I don't get it, or maybe it's self-indulgent, patronising, pretentious, CGI-riddled garbage. SPOILER: It's the latter.

Joss Whedon is always a reactionary Libertarian Bro and in this film he argues that one should keep their freedom because all authority is based on antiquated ideas. And it's just boring and obnoxious. The writing is off-kilter; especially in the shifting between cabin and office scenes. The casting mistakenly tries to shake up The Breakfast Club style jock and nerd archetypes. And the scares and action aren't cool. Avoid. The Hunger Games took similar concepts & executed them much better.

Horror meta-movie version of The Truman Show that tinkers with the standard genre conventions. It's smart and fun and the finale sets up some excellent gore scenes but the big reveal is kinda anti-climactic. Still, I love that it's the paranoid pot-head who figures shit out and is pretty much the smartest guy in the film. Finally a chronic movie character worth looking up to.

Goddard/Whedon don't take horror films seriously -- not even as objects of satire, and that's a huge mistake Wes Craven and Sam Raimi fortunately didn't make in the past -- and create an unbearably self-indulgent, cynic and see-how-cool-it-is-to-be-ironic-about-genre-clichés mocker. Cabin is more tricky than bright: it's a game/reality TV show managed by corporate creeps that murder "real characters" with a big catalogue of monsters in order to feed ancient gods. Really? What a fuck up.

Between this and "Tucker & Dale vs Evil", the horror comedy is truly getting its groove back. Snappy one-liners, great CGI, tongue in cheek mythology and inspired cross-cutting - cutting some scenes short, letting others go on longer than expected - more than make up for the lack of real scares. I'm pretty sure Sam Raimi approves. If you're up there, please save me, Mr. Merman!

Best comedy since Hot Fuzz and best horror comedy since Shaun of the Dead. From mermen and unicorns to saw blades and boobs, this has something for everybody. Cliches abound as a necessity and then are turned into something more. The movie then steps it up a peg by taking a hard line stance on blond women reading at the very beginning.

This is an extremely fun and entertaining movie, however, it simply doesn't live up to its potential. It nods here and there to its forebears, but it fails to fully take it to the next level. If Whedon simply tried just a little bit harder, then this movie would have been as good as everyone says, even as is it's still a pretty awesome movie.

As a critique of modern horror it is outdated and uninformed. As a horror film it falls into the tropes it attempts to lampoon. Cabin in the Woods attempts to be both horror and comedy yet fails at both. Just watch the Halloween House episode of Buffy and save yourself the time and money.

The Cabin in the Woods is refreshingly ambitious and brave for turning the horror genre completely on its head. Horror films are growing increasingly more and more generic and predictable. But credit to Joss Whedon & Drew Goddard for taking risks and confidently throwing so many ideas together. The acting is much to be desired, the script is pretty woeful and the finale won't please everybody. But I admire this film for trying something completely different and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Every so often, you see a film that thinks it's really smart, and in the end, it proves it. This is one. Yes, it plays on horror movie conventions and spoofs them, but more importantly, it spoofs the lack of creativity in the Hollywood film-making machine. Unfortunately, once you figure out the higher stakes (or even that there are higher stakes to begin with), any visceral reaction to the attempts at frightening you go away, but the film's ability to make you think makes that a small loss.

A clever concept, with competent execution, but...the thing about playing two film archetypes against each other is they both need to be solid for the film overall to achieve its potential. What we have here is a super bland horror pastiche and an underwhelming 'man behind the curtain' setting. If it weren't for the strength of the core idea, and some competent acting, this film would have very little value. As-is, it's OK, but I'm not exactly gaining any new insight into the horror genre.

Personally I think this is the best horror movie in quite some time. Every time I watch this, I continue to pick up on little references...and that's the thing. This film pays its respects to many horror films, including one of my favorite, Evil Dead. While also doing so, it makes fun of so many cliches in cinema today, and really it becomes a comedic horror homage. As a bonus, the last 30 minutes are quite entertaining, maybe some of the best I've ever seen in film.

Cabin in the Woods takes one of horror's most tired premises and turns it on its head, injecting hilarity, intelligence and thrills along the way. It's the perfect horror/comedy; laugh out loud funny but with truly effective scares and creepy atmosphere. One of my favourite films of the year and it's just as good the second time around.

A movie based on the assumption that if you make something that's shit on purpose it will magically cease to be shit. The whole "fourth wall" -thing doesn't really work if it's the same unimaginative, misogynistic trite on either side of the screen. The last 30 minutes are spent pointlessly underlining the premise for those who just came in, while the movie carries on with the most basic horror movie plot all the way to the end.

Solid scares in the cabin, but it was the other setting that really brought the horror. That scene with the dock events in the background of the party at headquarters will stick with me for a while; it was truly disturbing on its own movie level and more so when considering its clever and biting meta angle. Fittingly, with that shot of the bloody mess in the elevator lobby also still lingering in my brain, this was my last horror movie of the Halloween season, and maybe for a while after that.

It's a noble effort to helm what is simultaneously a mockery of and a homage to horror tropes, trying to reinvigorate the genre from its currently gasping state. The film is indeed filled with very entertaining moments and one particular scene involving elevator doors is genuinely inspired. The film's strength is, however, also its greatest failing. Its strict adherence to its "wink-wink" attitude creates limitations that keep it from becoming something more coherent and of more lasting value

Smart, funny, knows it's roots, original premise, unpredictable plot. These are traits not exhibited by many (or, let's be honest, any) other horror films in recent memory and Cabin in the Woods is for this reason and many more, by far the best horror film I have seen in years. I can't recommend it enough, but I don't want to say too much more about it as I personally found going in blind made me like it even more.

These self-indulgent horror satires were never clever, but this one is particularly daft and obnoxious. Jarringly, one of the movies it seeks to outwit is The Evil Dead, a creative, funny and genuinely scary masterpiece. Goddard and Whedon's deconstructionist wank is none of those things. On the off-chance that Hollywood is reading this: A $30m budget and state-of-the-art special fx are definitely better reserved for horror filmmakers of Sam Raimi's talent.

Neat premise with some good (if a bit outdated) critique of horror film staples. The problem comes when it presents us those exact same horror film staples for so long with the tension having been deflated by the premise. We're left with large parts of the film being repetitious and noneffective, before it finally rewards us with some insanity at the end. The scenes in the offices remain the highlight of all this.

A genre mashup with the gleeful earnestness of "Drag Me to Hell" and the dark inventiveness of "Cube", yet somehow is 91% at Rotten Tomatoes. Has this ever happened before? Don't believe those calling it a comedy. There is humor and satire that flow naturally from the situations, but it's very real to the protagonists. And the "twist" shown in the trailers is revealed in the first few minutes - it has so much more up its sleeve!

Cabin in the Woods is an effective film. It's smart, funny, has a couple of good jump scares, and always works your mind. It falters a tad in its plotting, which is inconsistent and slightly incoherent, but the way it manages to criticize its own genre while still finding a way to be effective while working within its constraints is worthy of applause. It has a third act that will be busier than the majority of movies you will ever see. It's definitely worth seeing at some point in your life.

Really great. I don't really want to describe it because it'll be better to go in knowing nothing. Just watch and enjoy. Edit: watching this again 8 years later makes me appreciate it even more.

A disquisition on horror movies as ritual: a representation (a construction, that is, the "cabin") summoning phantasms arising from the "woods" (that is, the unconscious, conceived on not just the individual level, but the collective and cinematic level - hence many shots and scenes that refer to other films), "latent content" expressed in order to keep at bay the true nightmare of the drives unleashed. Tries to be both a horror movie and a critique thereof, but is less successful at the former.

Decent and inventive meta horror comedy but I think a little overrated by the horror buffs who feel 'seen' by its existence. The likability of one character is critical to how well the ending will work for many, but for me they were acted so poorly I didn't care for them at all. 'Cabin' ironically works best when the focus is away from the Cabin with Whitford and Jenkins responsible for most of the entertainment through the runtime. Definitely worth seeing at least once but be wary of the hype.

'Cabin in the Woods' has some smart writers behind the curtain, but their film is never as smart as it should be. If Whedon and crew were going to run the race, why wane through it? The film never delivers fully on the laughs, nor does it ever make a strong case for the scares. What's left is a great big mess. Movies making fun of their respective genres while delivering on the genre's promises can work. See 'Scream' and 'Shoot Em Up.' This feature simply does not.

CitW deserves only to be forgotten despite its strong acting and practical FX work. The film wants to be The Evil Dead, but fails at both horror (cinematography and musical direction devoid of creativity or effort) and comedy (over saturation of comic relief with no counterbalance). It wants to be subversive, but undercuts itself with its indifference and sheer unawareness of its subject matter. In the end, CitW is nothing more than a self-congratulating misfire.

A really great, really humorous approach to making sense out of nonsense. The laughs aren't consistent but they come hard, especially when a motorcycle is involved. I did find the ending a bit unfittingly pessimistic but I guess that's a consequence of the story itself.

I really don't think Goddard/Whedon are trying as hard as you think they are. In fact, I'm convinced they were high/drunk the entire time they wrote this.

I'm not a big fan of modern horror films, but everyone told me to see this anyway. I knew there would be some genre-blending with Whedon involved, but the extent of this farce is delightfully ridiculous. Whitford and Jenkins are the perfect anchors to this blissful story - they completely embody average Joe everyman, which juxtaposes so nicely with the premise. Downright hilarious and smart, and made damn well to boot, I didn't just like this, I loved it.

Don't want to spoil a thing, but that last 20 minutes or so was gold. Has an almost Gantz-like WTF factor that keeps you on the edge the whole time.

Nice idea and execution until it falls apart a bit near the end.

Neither as smart or fun as it think it is. But always mildy amusing and entertaining.

In much the same way the "Blair W.P" was the kings new clothes of scariness, this is the kings new clothes of horror/thriller/Comedy. I am not going to say this was a bad film, but it was certainly NO masterpiece, and whilst it was mildly interesting to tick off the films it parodied or referenced, it is nothing other than a sort of B movie montage of horror clips pasted together into a pretty tenuous story, with a bit of humour thrown in. Nowhere near funny, scary, clever, or thrilling enough

Great beginning. Not so horrifying, occasionally scary, always quite humorous. It answers the eternal question "Why are people so incredibly stupid in horror movies?". For example, why does everybody in the group suddenly agree to split up into separate rooms where they can be murdered one by one? Why? The movie finally lets us know. The two "sets" or the two "views" of the movie complement each other very nicely. Aaand, it has a great beginning. With nerds.
