31 Days of Halloween - Day 23 "The Cabin in the Woods"

Join us all October long as we spotlight different horror movies every day with a brand new video! 

God do I love this movie. I'd say this film reached my top 10 horror movies the moment I first saw it and I continue to be amazed by it to this day. It's just the most perfect and smartly structured story for a horror movie out there. It suddenly becomes applicable with so many other movies and adds so many levels. This movie changed the way that I watch the Evil Dead series.

It's pretty crazy that this film had such a difficult time getting released, especially when you see it. It's not just good, it's mind blowing in ways that only Joss and Drew could do. And boy does it get violent. It's amazing the shift that goes on as soon as the blonde is killed. While I could have done with a little less CGI, there's enough practical effects to satiate even the most die hard horror elitist.

There's been talk of a sequel and as great as the first was, I'd really rather they just leave it at one. Not that I can even see how they'd possibly do a sequel, given the ending. But if anyone could find a way, I'm sure it's Whedon and Goddard.

Still, I vote no on that one.

I'd like my writing to further represent me as a person by providing different insights into the things currently on my mind. Whether it's writing about a movie, TV show, album, book, wrestling event, experience, or life lesson. I don't plan on making this a personal blog where I treat it like a diary. This is just supposed to represent… Me.
