Five teenagers head off for a weekend at a secluded cabin in the woods. They arrive to find they are quite isolated with no means of communicating with the outside world. When the cellar door flings itself open, they of course go down to investigate. They find an odd assortment of relics and curios but when one of the women, Dana, reads from a book she awakens a family of deadly zombie killers. There's far more going on however than meets the eye as the five campers are all under observation.
The Cabin in the Woods was a complete surprise to me! Not only to me, but to my boyfriend and my family! So this was a winner for sure!
I honestly thought this was going to be a cliché but it wasn’t, in a sense. In another sense, it was totally a cliché however that’s because the horror story is being orchestra by a group of people within the government. I know, crazy right? So this is pretty much a “choose your own adventure” type for our stars and I know those books can be pretty fun….sometimes haha.
In the beginning we get to see a part of the government piece of the story and here it gets you curious cause you really don’t know what’s going on! This aspect of the storyline is intriguing and unique seeing as what they’re doing is usually only seen in dystopian stories. The way the government controlled the situation got me excited and reminded me of The Hunger Games! It pulled me in and made me realize how awesome this concept actually is!
Though this wasn’t scary “scary”, it was more of a jump kind of scare, however I still enjoyed this and was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time! I was immersed into the story, I got connected to the characters, and I absolutely loved Marty! He was my favorite character and though he was a pot head, he was smart and the government surely had to watch out for him. I think what made me and my man fall in love with him was how creatively awesome his bong was! Oh my god, it surely got everyone laughing!
Overall, I had low expectations going in and came out quite satisfied! So if you’re a fan of horror or not a big fan of it, you’ll definitely be entertained no matter what! You’ll be hooked and dying to see where this movie goes. I promise you’ll be quite surprised and I had no idea first going in what the true overall story was. It’s a bit out of the box and from the beginning you would never think this is where it was going to end up, so it’s quite interesting. I don’t know how much I loved the end, it was okay but I can say I loved the journey so much more and how Sigourney Weaver just pretty much shows up out of nowhere! So, I most definitely recommend this fun movie. You can watch it on Netflix!
Sweet Viewing Everybody!
