IGH at the Movies: Cabin In The Woods

Cabin In The Woods is the latest piece from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard. It's a horror/thriller about five college kids that go stay at a the woods. I would give you more to the synopsis, but it would spoil it for you. Really, this film is filled with so much interweaving detail that it is hard to talk about! Basically I can say someone dies.

I tend to get so into movies that I stopped watching horror for my sanity. I only broke this rule because of Joss. So glad I did. This is such a good movie that it was worth the scared feeling. It is a film that I am still thinking about, even days later. CitW just stays with you, like a fungus you have grown to love.

The acting was spot on, with lines delivered right and sold perfectly. My particular faves were Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford. They both stood out in their roles and conveyed varying emotions at the drop of a hat. This film is also jam-packed with Whedon staples, including a brief scene with the intern , played by Tom Lenk!

So go see this, even if you are terrified. (My cure for being scared is watching a few episodes of Community.) Totally worth the money and time to check out the Cabin In The Woods.
