Cabin in the Woods

I was very excited to see this because I am a huge Joss Whedon fan.

Unfortunately, this movie didn’t live up to the hype for me. It was an interesting premise (a group basically sets up a horror movie-type premise for five unsuspecting college-age kids) but it wasn’t scary or even all that clever.

The cast is really good—Bradley Whitford and Richard Jennings in the group, Avery Johnson in the victims group, plus the best cameo since Zombieland.

I think the best horror movies don’t try to be clever at the expense of scares. Originality is great but it’s even better to actually scare people. This movie wasn’t either and I expected so much more from Joss Whedon.
