100-Word Review: Cabin In The Woods

The first rule of Cabin In The Woods is you don’t talk about Cabin In The Woods – and Joss Whedon’s latest foray into movie-making offers a thrilling unspoiled cinematic experience, though one that bears repeated viewing. Suffice to say that the cliched “sexy youths in isolation” trope is turned literally inside out by a movie that inverts the entire concept of horror, while remaining grounded enough to play straight. Not a scary movie per se, but an interesting and intensely fun (especially in its ridiculous third act) everything-in-the-blender ode to the genre. Remain unspoiled, and go see it now.
