111- Cabin in the Woods [9.0]

Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again.

Scream has been regarded as a film that both changed the horror genre while acknowledging all of its pitfalls. To some extent, I disagree. Scream stopped horror right in its track, causing a reactionary wave of filmmakers who decided that meta and self-awareness was akin to intelligent cinema. Cabin in the Woods, on the other hand, is a challenge to filmmakers to do something new with horror. It also has to be really damn entertaining. Featuring one of the better third acts I’ve seen in a while, Cabin in the Woods is one of the most refreshing films in quite some time, genres be damned.
