    Wow, this is one INTENSE thriller! I was kind of expecting it to be just another typical horror flick, but boy oh boy was I wrong! It starts off like any other horror-slasher movie - a bunch of high school kids head off to the woods to spend a weekend in a cabin - but then it turns into an psychological conspiracy story about two evil scientists who want to run experiments on the teens that will drive them to their deaths.
    Chris Hemsworth is really good in his role, as is Bradley Whitford. It's nice to see Richard Jenkins back on the screen after a long time (he was my favorite when I was a kid because my mom loved him so, lol). Mostly, if you're a fan of the gory horror film, you will like this one. It knows what it's doing, even when you think you have it all figured out and then everything gets turned upside down - over and over again. Scary!

    This movie was not as good as i had hoped. I found myself wishing that the movie would hurry up and end. It was interesting but I wish it was a little more realistic. Towards the end it just got kind of silly. and I kinda of wish I would of went and saw another movie instead of this one.

    I really loved this film and highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. I did not expect this film to be this entertaining at all, I was so surprised. THe film was funny, scary and had great twists and great ending. I have not see a film like this one in a long time or actually never. I am not sure what genre it is because it has so many different themes and they were all well developed and very interesting. I thought that the actors all did a great job and were able to make this film scary as well as really funny. Overall, I thought this film was totally awesome and it is definitely worth seeing in the theaters.

    I definitely did not exact this film to be good, I was highly surprised by it and definitely recommend seeing it in the theaters. THe film had a great mixture of humor and fear and intelligence, I was blown away by how good this movie was. I love how the filmmakers deconstructed this film and made something very surprising and entertaining. The cast was absolutely great and I believed their characters and rooted for them, especially the stoner guy who was played by Fran Kranz who was really good. Overall, I thought this film was really great and it is worth seeing in the theaters.

    The movie was very violent and made so sense. My husband and myself hated the movie. We were with another couple and they also were very disappointed in the movie. We all would like a refund, please don't waste your money.

    "The Cabin in the Woods" is just what you would expect from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard. The guys responsible for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Lost" have a way of taking things and turning them on their heads. Here, they've done that with the time honored horror genre. It's hard to talk about the premise without giving away the movie's secrets, so I won't, but if you've seen the trailer, you get the basic idea. Five college kids, all horror stereotypes (jock, stoner, hot girl, smart hot girl, and the brain), go to a cabin in the woods to party. We find they are being watched from a control room, and then are suddenly being tormented by redneck zombies. Then, all hell breaks loose. The movie goes into a bunch of strange places, but its never less than fun. Whedon and Goddard have fun playing with our expectations. They know horror well, and they know their audience knows horror well, so if you're a fan of the genre, you'll love how they play with all of the cliches that we've become so familiar with. If you're not a fan of horror, it might not be as much fun, but you'll probably still enjoy the movie, as long as you're willing to go along for the ride. Whedon and Goddard seem to have gone into this with the plan to see where their imaginations go and just have fun. Luckily these guys know how to turn this kind of experiment into a really fun experience.

    This film was really good and I highly recommend seeing it in the theater. I did not think that a horror film can be this interesting and entertaining. I usually go into a horror flick with very low expectations as I did this time and I was very surprised when this film turned out to be great. The movie was original and it had amazing twists and turns that were very unexpected and fresh. The film is smart, funny and thrilling all in the same time and I was very engaged throughout the whole running time of the film. I saw this film in 3D and it looked great, i think it is worth to spend extra cash to see it in 3D. Overall, this film will pleasantly surprise you and you will leave the theater highly entertained.

    I did not expect this film to be good at all, my boyfriend loves horror flicks so he drags me with him every time and I usually end up falling asleep. I was really surprised by this movie and I really liked it. It is not particularly scary but it is very well made and has enough interesting twists and turns to keep you interested and engaged. At first I thought that I have seen a film like this one million times before but throughout the film I have realized that the director wanted me to think like that and then the film flipped and became something that I did not expect, it was very refreshing and surprising. Overall, I highly recommend seeing this film in the theaters.

    This film was totally awesome and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. You will be very surprised by this film and what it really is, I honestly did not expect this film to be what it is. The twist in this film is unexpected and highly satisfying, I was genuinely surprised. It is very rare nowadays to find a horror flick that is original and entertaining and this film is definitely both. You will be scared, thrilled and you will also laugh during this movie and I promise you will leave completely satisfied and entertained. Overall, this film is definitely worth seeing in the theaters and telling your friends about.
