So “the secret” has been out for a few weeks now, but I still can’t bring myself to write publicly about the ending of Liongate’s The Cabin in the Woods for fear of ruining some lagger’s future enjoyment. Despite the rave reviews, I know a bunch of people will wait to see this movie on DVD. Fools!
“The secret” is not that there is a high-tech control room beneath the Cabin wherein a shadowy organization is controlling the supernatural happenings above. Anyone who saw the TV commercials already knows that. “The secret” is why this is happening and who this organization works for. But those of us who HAVE actually watched the film know that the story itself is just as good as the reveal, with amazing visuals and a literal army of otherworldly beings.
I’ve already seen Cabin twice and still don’t feel like I’ve absorbed every aspect. The film is chock-full of interesting characters, allusions to other horror films, and truly original situations.
