Day 5 of watching a horror flick every day in October…
Today I picked Cabin in the Woods.
This fucking movie. I love it. Let me talk about why, for a minute (besides just “omgJossWhedonforeveraaaahh”).
First there’s a redheaded main character named Dana (yay X-Files!)
Then there’s a cabin that looks just like the Evil Dead cabin
It even has a cellar with weird shit in it, including a book who’s recitations raise demons/undead
plus weird interactions with taxidermy mountings (all very Evil Dead)
Then, the conspiracy theorist character lays down an X-Files line
Being that this movie basically explains why certain things happen in every other horror movie ever, it’s not surprising that the references don’t stop there.
What might be more surprising is a violent attack with REO Speedwagon playing
Or perhaps, a sudden unicorn impaling someone?
Not to mention an appearance by the all mighty Sigourney Weaver
A decent helping of eye candy (one of which is Chris Hemsworth aka THOR):
Boundless comic relief(by characters that surely mirror Mulder and Scully in more ways than one)
Oh yeah, and plenty of blood.
Yep, this movie’s got it all. If you don’t like it the first time around, give it another go. You’ll take it less seriously when you already know what to expect :)
Wait till you hear how it all leads to Firefly.
Umm. Im just gonna guess it has to do with the Blue Sun Corporation? Hands of Blue?
