Cabin in the Woods has been praised by critics and fans alike. I was initially excited about it but then heard Joss Whedon big-noting himself, as though he was a saviour reclaiming horror from the grips of torture porn and hardcore terror. I wasn't aware that horror needed saving and so I did my best to avoid this movie at the cinemas and I steered clear of the fan banter... So finally I have just watched it and I think it sucked. It's not smart at all and it takes a steaming piss on the genre as far as I'm concerned. It's obvious that Whedon wrote it because it felt like watching a double episode of Buffy or Angel with cheesy dialogue and the typical satirical Joss lines... Needless to say that Cabin in the Woods was a huge disappointment to me. Who knows, maybe some time (a long time) down the road I'll revisit it, hoping for a newfound appreciation. I won't be in a hurry though.
