THE CABIN IN THE WOODS (R)
LIONSGATE FILMS (2011)
Starring: Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams & more.
THE CABIN IN THE WOODS isn't what you expect it to be. It's the perfect set up for many a Horror
films, but ends with a completely new take on the Horror genre. A group of friends head to a secluded
cabin in the woods for a fun getaway. They plan on having a good time relaxing, partying and getting
away from everything. They arrive a the small cabin and everything looks normal to them and typical to
us Horror fans. They start drinking, smoking and partying. The next day they had down to the lake and
go swimming. Soon things start to change and each of the friends encounters something different from
their worst nightmares. They are all separated at the times of these events, so they all have to deal with
them on their own. They soon regroup and try to figure out what is actually going on. They try to leave
the area and escape far from the cabin as they can. They seem like they will be able to get away and
then something stops them from going any further. The soon discover that someone or something bigger
is behind everything. This is where the whole movie concept is turned upside down. I don't want to say
exactly what happens here, because it was a surprise twist to me and I don't want to ruin it for anyone
who hasn't seen it yet. If you are getting a little bored with the typical Horror movie plot, then
definitely check this out. Make sure you hang in there because it starts out normal, but quickly turns!
This film stars Chris Hemsworth, who played THOR in the movie, but this was made before that film
and was released after!
