This is by far the best 2012 film
Perhaps only The Dark Knight Rises can beat it

This movie was even better than I thought it would be. It's not scary though, anyone expecting a horror movie is going to be disappointed.
My favorite part: When she hits the 'purge' button and the assault team sees the elevators are going to open. Talk about a 'Oh shit!' moment!
this movie owned so hard oh my god
Just got back from seeing it, absolutely fucking awesome film. Did not expect the last half hour of it at all!
lol deadites, the monsters from evil dead, were on the white board of the monster list. Sin City's Kevin was on there, too. At least, that's what people are assuming they meant.
Towards the end, SCP: The Movie.
Ahaha the Hellraiser monsters movie name is Fornicus, lord of bondage and pain . Classy.
Seeing all the monsters when they enter the SCP foundation was cool as fuck. Felt like Thir13en Ghosts.
I feel dirty mentioning that movie.
I couldn't help but feel that redneck zombies were one of the more boring choices of beast in the selection, but at least the later portion of the film made up for that. I especially loved seeing the merman .
Isn't the "Angry Molesting Tree" from the Evil Dead?
ALSO, REALLY AWESOME CAMEO: in the shot where it pulls out to show ALL the cubes with all the monsters in them, look a couple to the right of the two heroes- there's a Boomer from Left 4 Dead!
i REALLY wanna watch this but the release date is for australia is...
12th of july
anyone else laugh like hell when the dude got gored by a fucking unicorn
Knew nothing about the movie and decided to read a review; BAM, ending spoiled in the first sentence.
So, I loved this movie... I got the joke, loved the homages to other films, and laughed like hell when the director outlined the cliche order of deaths in horror films.
But my mom hated it. She thought the whole thing should have been more based on mythology. Like, they're dealing with gods, so why weren't the monsters all mythological. She pointed out specifically the scorpion mech.
I disagreed with her....
WHY IS THERE A BUTTON THAT DOES THAT
I dismembered that guy with a trowl. What have you been up to?
the whole point of this movie is a meta commentary on horror films. That's why it's all a ritual(ie the whore dies first, etc). The 'Gods' are not literal gods but the audience watching these movies. The ending is saying it's time to dump all the worn out rituals(same plots over and over) and try something new.
So it really has absolutely no connection to mythology. I'm not saying a movie about mythological gods wouldn't be cool, but that's not this movie.
Oh god this movie was awesome, the first thing I wanted to do when I got home was find a picture of the whiteboard. The TVTropes page for this movie is going to be biblical.
Also, anyone else notice The gore was kind of toned down and PG13ish for the first act, bumped up a bit for the second act, and turned up to fucking 11 for the final act?
Wouldnt it be kinda cool if the Blu-ray had different monsters attacking them? Like what if the girl never read the book or something.
lab guys would comment on your choice like one guy saying "No, you don't want that guy, he sucks" while the other guy is yelling "Choose the merman, choose the merman!"
Just saw the film. Really enjoyed it.
I only really had two complaints, explained below:
The scene in the cellar where the egghead gets hit in the back/shoulder with the bear-trap. Two things: where exactly does the bear trap go (did I miss them pulling it out or something?), and why does he instantly just get up and pep up and run off like nothing happened (I mean, he had a god-damn BEAR TRAP IN HIS SHOULDER!)
The scene right after where the girl gets mauled by the werewolf. Was I the only one to be turned off by how chill and nonchalant she and Marty were talking, while she had these giant fucking teeth marks right underneath her neck? She acted as though nothing happened at all, either.
Actually, now that I think about it, those two complaints are fairly universal. I can't really think of anyone really reacting to any sort of pain . Even when Jules got her hand stabbed , it seemed like her recoiling was more of the shock of it coming out nowhere, as opposed to the searing pain of having a fucking knife go through your hand .
Oh, and the film credits have an actress for the sugar-plum fairy, who I was personally hoping would be the one to kill them [and I was really disappointed when no even voted for her!] . Anyone have a screen-capture of her?
All in all, a great film. Was hilarious throughout, in spite of the morbidness of the subject. I am glad to see some refreshing ideas, and I wish Hollywood would take the hint. Even without the meta-commentary on horror films as cecilbdemodded explains, the film was actually refreshing and fairly original, even if it is just because it is a unique mash-up of genres and ideas. I wish more films would take a risk like that.
Also, does anyone know what the film in the cellar would have brought up? My friend and I figured out what pretty much everything else would have brought up, except that.
About your first issues I just figured they were pumped with adrenaline and shock, so the pain wasn't paralyzing. The stoner had a knife in his back right? He was doing alright later. Maybe part of what the lab guys did was to drug them enough so they could complete the ritual. After all, they couldn't just kill them straight out, the director at the end said that. The victims had specific parts to play.
About that item on Something Awful it's said that it summoned the unicorn since the film was Legend, I didn't catch that so I don't know if it's true.
Well, I know they were pumping the kids full of chemicals. I mean, it's mentioned explicitly in at least five separate instances - the dye that Jules uses has something that slowly enters her brain to make her dumb, Marty's reefer was making him immune to all the chemicals, the Operators pumped in pheromones to make Jules and the dude horny, they use another chemical to change the athlete guy's mind about staying together vs splitting up, and the Operators at first order Thorazine to be pumped into Marty's room when he finds the camera.
My only issue with that theory is that, in all these instances, it is explicitly stated that the Operators are using these chemicals, whereas there is not even a hint that they used adrenaline on top of everything else.
And I don't think any natural quantities of adrenaline, or any amount of shock, would allow you to complete disregard a FUCKING BEAR TRAP biting into your shoulder/back, and then you get PULLED UP AT LEAST 2 FEET OFF THE GROUND WITH IT. Maybe for a few minutes IMMEDIATELY afterwards, but you'd definitely feel that outside of the five-minute range. Not to mention he didn't seem to bleed AT ALL from the wounds.
For that matter, the girl never actually bleeds from the wounds the mauling gave her. The blood she's covered in is from the initial attack, but you never see any blood actively ooze from those wounds.
So all in all, I don't really buy that explanation. I think it's more poor directing than anything else. In regards to the theory behind the item, that's possible. I also found it fucking hilarious when the unicorn impaled the guy, because there was stereotypical fairy-tale fantasy music playing as it happened.
I love the unicorn part
have had to "evolve" to keep the "gods" entertained (The one guy in the company said "Remember when you could just throw a girl in a volcano?".) He also mentioned "keeping the customer happy."
Like Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (though that's a purely comedic approach) this movie takes all the common cliches of horror films and puts them together very well.
I had Deja'vu with the Unicorn part because it happened in a recent episode of Supernatural.
google'd L4D and Cabin in the Woods I found this
Andrew Jones: When they are in the underground cavern, I’m pretty sure there was a reference to Left 4 Dead?
Drew Goddard: Where did you see that? I didn’t even see that, but yes! It’s in there somewhere. Because we didn't have any money on this movie and yet we knew what we wanted to do and luckily Left 4 Dead, we were going to do a tie-in with Left 4 Dead 2 that was going to be Cabin in The Woods: Left 4 Dead and you could actually play the game, so that was all planned, and then the bankruptcy happened. But as a result we got to have some of their assets and they were nice enough to let us put some of their stuff in the deep background. We didn't want to be that obvious but I’m impressed you caught that because that is definitely not something that is easy to spot - Boomer.
Wow did no-one notice the cameo from the boomer from Left 4 Dead?
Edit: Guess the above post saw it. For reference, when the appearance of the monsters in the cages are shown, the boomer can be seen on the right side staring at the screen
This movie was really, really good.
If you haven't seen it and plan to, I suggest not ever watching the trailer.
(non spolier review from me) alright i just got done watching it and i gotta say way better then scream franchise combined. The cabin in the woods i think in my opinion did alot better on the what if of the horror styles and diffrent mini genres that were also in here . and i know i sound like a broken record here but it also leaves alot of theroys out there for the other horror movies out there in the open . now if anyone here who is reading the comments and maybe the spoilers just stop yourself cause you will be ruining a very interesting experience for yourself . as i put it as a spill rating BETTER THEN S*X !

For those of you who are interested in seeing the Boomer (I missed it too,) I downloaded the movie and took some screenshots. Obviously, don't click unless you've already seen the movie or you'll get spoiled.
