Looks surprisingly good. I like that they used the Evil Dead 2 cabin.

That's different than what I was expecting with the scifi twist (force fields?) and the Secret Master Control Room of Doom(TM). Not saying that it looks good necessarily, just different.

Well... that wasn't what I was expecting.

I was expecting something like "Evil Dead" and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" but wasn't expecting it to

turn into "The Matrix" or whatever.

I'm curious to see this, but unless it gets good reviews I'll wait for HBO HD or something.

I expected it to not meet RichC2's expectations.

I'm not surprised by that trailer regarding the film's "sci-fi" elements considering the basic plot summary for the film has been out for over two years now.

And it's not just Evil Dead 2 that gets a reference as...
Spoiler:
the script also contained a tree that rapes people as a homage to the first Evil Dead.

Other than the title, posters, and delays, I knew nothing of this film. Not even a plot summary.

The lack of expectation made my expectations especially easy to meet, as expected.

I also had read nothing about this movie outside of the Director, stars and poster.

This was the "secret film" played at BNAT 13 that audiences weren't allowed to discuss after the screening last night. However, based upon the #BNAT13WOLF hash tag and Nordling "spoiling" it on AICN itself this evening, this film is supposed to be "fucking awesome."

Nordling is based in Houston and he set up the screening for "The Grey" I saw on Friday. I talked to him and he said he's going to give Htown an advanced screening of this as well. Definitely going to try and get into that.

This movie is definitely far from what I suspected after hearing about it a couple of years ago. I read a pretty detailed summary of the movie as well as the supposed ending and i'm still not sure what to think about it.

Re: The Cabin In The Woods (Dir. Goddard, 2010, Jenkins, Whitford)

This week's EW says:

"Few prerelease screenings have inspired more enthusiasm among EW staffers that the one for the horror-comedy The Cabin in the Woods. But we don't know how much we can say about this twisty film without ruining the gory fun . . . We can say the movie concerns classic horror-film types. We can also state that the movie pays sly homage to such bloody flicks as The Evil Dead in a way that may make it difficult to view them in the same way again."

Not gonna watch that.

From the little bit I've read about this film, the consensus seems to be the less you know going in, the better. For once, I'm not going to spoil that for myself.

Maybe I need to watch the trailer again but.....it didn't do anything for me.....looks a little too goofy at the moment for me.

I think that looks like a cool twist on a typical horror flick. I'm excited for it.

This movie is fucking awesome. I can't say anything about it, but it's the best genre-bending movie in a while.
