Rental Recommendation: ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ (2012)

Cabin in the Woods

Five college students retreat to a remote forest setting looking for relaxation, romance and rolled cannabis. Instead, they find more than your usual “Nightmare on Elm St” chaos or “Halloween” tricks. Upon seeing this “cabin”, my first thought was how Alcatraz’s D Block could offer a nicer getaway. This cast delivers and Thor provides his best cinematic performance to date. Humans haven’t been subjected to this much scrutiny since Planet of the Apes in 68′. Seldom do horror movies keep your attention throughout or surprise viewers with such an original plot. But this flick does both nicely. Close your eyes and go see it.

Grade: B+
