5.0 out of 5 stars ANYthing Joss Whedon Touches turns to gold! A love letter to Horror AND a middle finger!, 30 Dec. 2012
This review is from: The Cabin In The Woods [DVD] (DVD)
Fans of Buffy The Vampire SLayer (my favourite show of all time), Angel, Firefly (and the hit film Serenity) and DOllhouse will understand already the style of script, direction Jos loves to take...full of humour, willing to surprise you at every turn and make characters you instantly love and/or love to hate and/or hate to love across the board....and here Joss teams up with Buffy Co-writer/producer Drew Goddard in his own directing debut.

The result of The Cabin In The Woods is a frenetically paced refreshing ode to Horror Cinemas past...oodles of Evil Dead, Night Of The Living Dead, Halloween, Scream references to begin with...and Scooby Doo (pothead Marty is obviously an ode to Shaggy Rodgers! and equally as loveable).

It is a warped film, with warped humour...but its brilliant...if you go in expecting a take-it-seriously horror film you will be disappointed, this is NOT what TCITW is all about. But i also recommend you take a check list of all your favourite horror films and whenever you see a reference tick the boxes...you will be very surprised! Expecially with the twist that comes later in the film.

Speaking of which there are some fantastic cameos in this film from actors in the Whedonverse across the board and as part of the films twisty finale...a Horror and Cinema ICON makes an explosive addition to the setlist.

Overall...this film in one viewing has become an instant favourite! It is frenetically paced, full of action, humour, a scortching script, wit, horror, shocks, and some edge of seat moments too.

Its not fundamentally perfect...but its perfect for an absolutely fun relentless time....90 minutes well spent.

10/10
