Like many horrors, The Cabin in the Woods mixes horror with elements of comedy. It's not going to give you nightmares, but it also has some tense scenes. In the movie, five college kids go to a cabin in the woods (appropriate movie title). They believe it's just a regular old cabin, but they couldn't be further from the truth. Unknown to them, it's actually a highly controlled environment, regulated by some people in a distance location. They control what monsters to send in, can lock rooms, release gas that affects mood, etc. Why are they doing this? You'll have to watch the movie to find out.
The monsters are probably my favorite part of the film. They have a wide variety of them, and they are influenced from many other horror movies, such as Evil Dead, Pans Labyrinth, It, The Ring, The Shining and the list goes on.

The storyline is kind of crazy and the ending is pretty hardcore as well. If you are in for a fun, enjoyable horror, this is definitely up your alley.
