Here there be no spoilers.
There's honestly not a lot we can say about this movie without ruining the experience for you, so we are going to keep plot discussion to a minimum. Cabin is such a good, fun, and unique movie, that spoiling it is almost a sin; even certain single words would spoil the fun, and that would really suck. Aside from the first trailer, we avoided all info on Cabin, and that's a near impossible for us. We're glad we did though. Really glad. The trailers give a lot away, including a lot of the characters deaths... just avoid them.
There are tons of nods to other movies and myth's that fan-boys everywhere will love. Again we can't really spoil it, but it's like a crazy melting pot full of horror, sci-fi and fantasy, with a liberal dose of "breaking the 4th wall" thrown in for good measure. There's even an appearance by an all-time genre great thrown into the mix (avoid reading the cast list on to IMDB, because it was a fun surprise.)
|Those crazy kids!|
Let's take a second to talk about the cast; everyone involved did a great job, but for us it was Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins that stole the show.We're long time fans of Whitford's since his West Wing days, and he really delivers some of the movies best (and funniest) lines. Jenkins is one of the best character actors ever, and he delivers the comic goods too, though a bit more dryly that Whitford. Everyone here was aces.
|Boner in the woods.|
|Ooh, a zombie movie... but not.|
|She is a bad, bad girl.|
"Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck You!"
All of the crazy mayhem at the end.
