I enjoy watching horror movies occasionally, but not for the reasons most people like watching them. I usually find them funny. There are so many stereotypes about horror movies that there are spin-offs using the stereotypes.
That’s the one thing about The Cabin in the Woods that I enjoyed. It explained why all horror movies have certain types, and why those types die the way they do. That was inventive and enjoyable. However, where the movie lost me was the reason behind it all. I won’t spoil it for those who want to watch it, but I thought the ending was lame.
The Cabin in the Woods also seemed to be trying to incorporate aspects of other recently popular movies. That is not so original. As horror movies go, it’s better than a lot that I’ve seen, but the ending was still a let-down.
