The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Cabin In the Woods (2012)

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Fran Kanz, Bradley Whitford, Richard Jenkins, Amy Acker
Director: Drew Goddard

Five friends head off to a secluded cabin for a weekend of fun. What they get instead is far worse than they imagined.

My Take:
There are a few directors which I will watch anything they do and Joss Whedon is one of them (though he was only writer/producer on this movie).
The movie takes a generic premise and characters then flips the entire thing on its head with a refreshing and unique take on all aspects. To talk about the details too much will give away from the pleasure of watching the movie unfold. Let's just say it's a very smart script and a nod to the writers love of the genre.
Cabin is the best horror movie I've seen this year.

Rating: Mind Blowing
