  • That makes me happy, although I'm going to punch a baby in the face if this movie turns out horrible.

  • 1) The remake looks like a typical horror/shock fest and not in the campier spirit that the series in known for

    2) Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard already did this new movie, better, with Cabin in the Woods and twisted it inside out

  • I like horror and different type movies and I was not impressed with "Cabin", actually it was a major pile.

  • I don't know, maybe I should give "Cabin" a 2nd shot but I bought the video based on reviews and it didn't do much for me. Yeah it had a different plot but based on the reviews I expected different.

    Evil Dead remake obviously won't have any resemblance to the accidental cult hit.

  • The awesomeness of Cabin isn't in the plot for me. It's the send-up/homage/mockery of that particular subgenre (and others -- Japanese Ghost Horror, for example) that makes me appreciate it. In analogy -- The guys pulling the strings and forcing everything to happen are Horror Movie Directors. The 'great old ones' are the audience. They have to -force- these 'real people' to behave in particular stereotypical ways and make them make stupid decisions that no sane person would make otherwise they won't be 'following the script' and the ever-powerful audience won't accept it. It's kind of the horror industry saying, 'God, we make stupid movies' while saying, 'Because the paying audience demands it'.

  • Just got back from this and I loved the new one, it's about as good as anyone could hope for considering the cult classic source material. The setup for the plot was strong and feels well thought out when the horror finally arises. I really liked the gore in this, way over the top in a good way and just plain brutal in some respects. Lack of CGI really helps, R rating, lack of "star" actors, lower budget is a plus.

    Only a couple things bothered me, notably one spoiler aspect near the end that I won't reveal for others on here and I felt they could have used one aspect from the original that wasn't fully explored. These were minor issues though and didn't detract from the overall impact and really surprised me with the twist and turns all the way up until the end.

    Being a lover of the originals, I find this to be a worthy entry in the series and would be good with a couple more sequels if they go that route. I absolutely hate remakes of "classics" and was very skeptical of this movie upon hearing the idea of a remake being conceived but they did the re-imagining the right way. (Homage to the source material isn't overt, subtle changes in dialog and minor plot twists without straying to far from the original intent of the old movies people love, etc.)

    Cabin in the Woods is a movie I enjoyed as well, agree with most horror fans on here about that one.

  • Alright, getting ready to see this flick, I'll post my thoughts afterwards.

    Ok, liked this reboot for the most part. I felt that they shouldn't have combined the first 2 originals in this one movie. They can redeem themselves if they go straight to Army of Darkness and make that into a darker version of the original and I'd be very happy. I would love to talk about this some more but don't want to ruin too much for those who have not seen it yet. If you are on the fence just go see it, it is worth it. This is coming from a person who thought that they would not do the originals justice, so take my opinion for what it's worth.

    Oh, without ruining anything I will say that I feel sorry for one of the people in the film, they got messed up real good.
