THE CABIN IN THE WOODS (2011)

Five thirty-somethings go out for a relaxing weekend getaway at a secluded cabin in the woods only to end up being attacked by zombies and a whole horde of other nasty creatures.  What's behind all this mayhem?  Well, you'll have to watch the film to find out, but trust me, it doesn't take a genius to figure it out.  In fact you'll probably figure it out in about two minutes, but the fun isn't solving the mystery as much as watch it all play out.  Buffy fans like myself will instantly recognize the writing style of Joss Whedon and get a kick out of some of the Buffyverse stuff.

I got more to say, but I think you'd just be better going into the film blind.  The horror is not as hardcore as I was hoping, in fact, the film is more of a comedy, but I still enjoyed it and actually watched it twice just to pick up some of the details.

Good film, lots of awesome monsters, lightning quick pace, attractive females (especially that redhead, my god), good special effects.  Check it out.
