The Cabin in the Woods.
I saw this Friday night with Gingifer. As probably the most creative horror film I’ve ever seen, I loved every minute. It reminded me in ways of Tucker and Dale, because it points at the silly things horror movies do. Tucker and Dale laughed at those silly things. The Cabin in the Woods smiled at them, but it also asked why studios make the same horror movies again and again, and why people keep seeing them. There were a few very chilling moments when the filmmakers were clearly scolding audiences for finding pleasure in watching people suffer. And on top of that it was one of the scarier movies I’ve ever seen. It was a lot of fun, and it also really made me think.
