Some Days I Just Want a Cabin in the Woods

There are some days I wish I’d never become a writer. Usually it’s when I’m watching a program/tv show/movie that I’ve waited to come out and about 5 minutes in, I’ve pretty much figured out 90 percent of the movie. It’s quite annoying and my husband gets irritated when I tsked and shake my  head. He knows I know. He also knows I won’t tell him but on occasion I do have to leave the room because the predictability pisses me off.

And then there are those bright shiny occasions when I get a few unexpected twists.

This past weekend, it happened when I watched A Cabin in the Woods. My son picked it out, and I wasn’t that excited as I’d seen a movie with a similar title recently. But I was bored and so we sat down to watch it.


The premise is 5 kids take off to spend the weekend in one’s cousin’s cabin and of course bad things happen. So when the movie started I was confused about these 2 office guys talking about one’s spouse and their fertility problems. Just as I was ready to pop out the movie and check to see if I’d gotten the right movie, the scene cut to the college kids. There was humor and a little sly ribbing of the horror genre.

It just got better from there.

And I absolutely loved, loved the ending. Brilliant. Sigh. God, I wish I’d written that.

    Great movie! I definitely agree that it just gets better and better! It was on the top 10 lists of all three of my writers on my website! I personally loved it as well especially because I am not a fan of modern day horror films. They are usually cheap and formulaic. Here’s the link to the top 10 lists on my website: http://vlizz.com/2013/01/24/top-10-favorite-films-of-2012-zero-dark-thirty-cabin-in-the-woods-and-more/

    Why is it every horror movie has to be about 15-25 year olds? It’s like bad things don’t happen to older folks? Why is it that once couple ususally sneaks off, or manages to be alone for sex and they are the first to die? I guess bad things don’t happen those over 25 unless they are a writer who have an encounter with a “dedicated” fan who will help them back to health.
