  1. I’m glad to hear that it’s not scary. I scare easily and was debating whether I’d be able to enjoy going to see this in theaters. Knowing that I won’t be frightened assures me that I will have a good time and won’t have to worry.

    I like this review a lot. I agree with virtually every point, and yet I think I ended up enjoying the movie a bit more than the reviewer. Certain images in the story are priceless. Whereas “Scream” and “Behind the Mask” rely on imagination and expectation, “Cabin in the Woods” had the budget to create visual effects to bring this ambitious-looking world to life in a way that only Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard can. It’s far from perfect, and there were several choices that I did not enjoy, and questions that were not answered, due to, in my opinion, sloppy writing and filmmaking, but I felt that the movie was well worth seeing in the theaters, and I give the filmmakers a bit more credit in deconstructing the genre than the reviewer does.
