CABIN IN THE WOODS
3 stars out of 4
There will always be a solid argument between those who crave all the latest information regarding a film and diehard cinephiles going into a theater completely cold. It’s not that one method is better than the other, or more preferable, per se. Honestly, it’s next to impossible to know virtually nothing about a movie these days, what with online marketing and the incessant buzz of the blogosphere, but this doesn’t always hold true when it comes to indie films. Certain movies, though, are tailor-made specifically to this second group of people; ones that shun spoilerish advance reviews and the endless stream of Internet chatter. Certain movies demand to be seen through virgin eyes at a time where nearly every single plot point is telegraphed in studio-approved trailers, which all leads to this new movie called Cabin in The Woods.
