The Cabin in the Woods (2012)
Five friends go to the title location for a fun getaway, but their vacation takes a horrific turn. However, things are not as they appear. Post-modern film functions both as a horror film and a commentary on the genre. It cleverly chooses to reveal its secrets gradually instead of springing them in the last reel. The best sections are the very witty office scenes. My favourite moment is the appearance of the title credit, an homage to Funny Games. The climax is also a blast. Fran Kranz’s artificial performance is grating for the first half of the film.
