Streaming Saturday: The Cabin in the Woods (2011)



This week’s Streaming Saturday is The Cabin in the Woods. Produced by nerd-god Joss Whedon and directed by Drew Goddard (the pair wrote the script), the movie is a fresh take on a tired horror trope.

To reveal any details would be a detriment to anyone’s first viewing. Suffice it to say, the movie takes a violently witty, meta approach to the “teen cabin horror” movies made popular in the 80s. It reminds me of what Scream did in the 90s for teen slashers. It’s a very fun and surprising movie and I highly recommend it.

You can stream The Cabin in the Woods on Netflix.

You can also buy the movie on DVD or Blu-Ray at Amazon.com.
