Terrible cartoonish film, with no wit or surprises
4 weeks ago
Excerpt: This is truly one of the worst films ever made by m. night shamalan--although it wasn't made by him. What you see is what you get, and there are no surprises whatsoever. The ending is seen from the beginning, and the lame acting makes the chore of suffering through this thoughtless, juvenile trash.
Excerpt: Thought this would be a run-of-the-mill dumbs teen "cabin in the woods" movie, but Mr. Whedon apparently loved this movie because he made it awesome, ahem... unlike the last 2 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Very funny, scary, sometimes simultaneously, and very very clever throughout.
Excerpt: A disappointing, mediocre slasher/horror movie from Joss Whedon-Drew Goddard tandem, the same guys who brought us Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly series. The very good quality of the video and sound cannot compensate for the poor plot of the movie.
Summary: With a well written plot that plays on all the archetypes and tropes of horror films worldwide, Cabin in the Woods offers a clever, well paced, enjoyable horror film that sets the bar on what great horror should be.
