This past Monday, Destroy the Brain invited some lucky readers of the site to go see The Cabin in the Woods before its theatrical release. Since I was a huge fan – and I think you will be to when you see it – of the film, I wanted to hear back from the people that went to see it. While we didn’t hear from everyone who went, a few readers were kind enough to lend us some feedback in what they thought. I gave the film a 10/10 review (read here). Rarely do I give those types of scores out so, I’ll be honest, it got me a little self conscious. But, I firmly believed in my review so that is why the rating still stands.
Here are some of the people’s feedback after they saw the film on Monday.
Lauren Halvorson says:
(The) Cabin in the Woods was fantastic and completely unexpected. It was very original and I truly could not predict what would happen, next. Highly recommended.
John Van de Riet says:
The Cabin in the Woods is a love letter to horror fans.
While Spencer Seher said:
Very funny dialogue, silly execution, plenty of gore, The Cabin in the Woods does not take itself seriously at all. It’s highly entertaining, but the only thing that keeps it from being a Clive Barker/H.P. Lovecraft ripoff is its purposeful goofiness.
Matt Wessel boldly stated:
If you like unicorns, you will love this movie!
Douglas Wicker says:
Cabin in the Woods is an incredible ride that’s everything you’ve ever seen in a horror film and nothing at the same time. A must see for genre fans.
Josh Buechler says:
The best thing about this film is that the filmmakers committed to its premise and were not afraid to follow that premise to challenging and unexpected place. Nothing about this film was half assed
