Cabin in the Woods is the same, but different

7 May


Cabin in the Woods is a cliché horror film with some twists. The script was written by Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon, which means audiences can expect something a little different. Five teenagers travel to a remote cabin and read from a book that awakens a family of deadly zombies. Most horror fans know this story and what is going to happen next, but as the characters are stereotypically taken out one by one there is something much greater and more sinister going on that will grab audiences when they are least expecting it. Goddard and Whedon’s approach satisfy the blood hungry horror fan, but at the same time stays true to their fan base and offers an original interpretation of the genre that allows all hell to break loose in the film’s finale. The film forces audiences to put together the pieces, but it is not as scary and not as clever as Goddard and Whedon think.
