The Cabin in the Woods

Richard Jenkins, Amy Acker, and Bradley Whitford control a lethal simulated Horror Movie environment that terrorizes a group of young people in The Cabin in the Woods. Why? Just go see it.
**** out of ****

The Cabin in the Woods may be the ultimate post-modern horror movie. Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard have made a hilarious and sometimes scary movie about scary movies. Unlike Scream, a film with a similar agenda, Cabin in the Woods takes the story in a completely absurd yet unexpected direction. It almost reminds me of the zany plot turns an episode of South Park may have. When the most insane parts of the movie take place, there is almost nothing to justify them, except that the writers and I'm sure the audience as well, desired to see it happen on a lustful level. 

It's really hard to say anything else. This is one of my favorites so far this year.
