Ahead of Marvel Studios' The Avengers meltdown at the box office, do yourself a favor and check out Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon's The Cabin in the Woods in the theaters. And brace yourself for the best horror film in years and our favorite film of 2012 thus far.
Why exactly is The Cabin in the Woods our Zombie of the Week? Well, we can tell you but apart giving away some spoilers, the truth is the film are not just a Zombie flick. The Cabin in the Woods is one hell of a film that put the cinematic history of horror in perspective and thus is a revelation of 2012.
We are extremely sorry for leaving the film out of our usual previews for the fact that we have not really even watch the trailer on the advice of well-informed film critics. And now that we have watched the film, we can tell you only one thing: Watch this film right away this weekend, ahead of the opening of Marvel Studios' The Avengers which will of course take over all available theaters come next week, thereby eliminating your opportunity of watching this gem. Aside from the fact that both films feature the talents of Chris Hemworth (the cinematic Thor for the ill-informed) and director Joss Whedon (in a co-writing and producer capacity) as well as the likely similarity of being excellent films, The Cabin in the Woods is indeed a film that any self-respecting horror film fans should not miss, and will certainly become a Cult film in time to come especially given its modest (satisfactory but none too amazing) box office results.
We will probably follow with a full-scale review of our own later but right now we are breaking away from our tradition of embedding trailers of films we are previewing, as we simply do not want you to form any opinions of the film by judging from its trailer. So here we have some pretty quirky posters for you to satiate on right after the aptly bare-boned official synopsis:
Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes The Cabin in the Woods, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.
