Prequels!

Plus, there's always the possibility that the people running the show are just... wrong about the world ending if the Ancient Ones wake up. Where did they get that information from? It's been handed down to them for millennia by generations of superstitious dicks, hasn't it? What if those superstitious dicks were sold a lie, back in the beginning?

Maybe the Ancient Ones didn't even wake up at the end of the movie. Maybe that was just the equivalent of a person half-waking, stretching and then saying, "Fuck it, it's too early," then tucking their head under the duvet for ten more minutes.

All things are possible in fiction; shitty retcons doubly so.

NB: I haven't even seen the film.

imo this and evil dead 2013 are two of the best horror films to come out in the past 10 years. Besides Hatchet and Saw, what was really memorable in the horror genre from 1998-2013.

i stilll this TCITW will be considered a classic in 10 years.

To mention a few:

The Devil's Rejects
Audition
The Ring (Original & Remake)
Pulse (Original)
Kill List
Hostel
Martyrs
High Tension
Dog Soldiers
The Descent
28 Days Later
Ju-On
[Rec] & [Rec 2]
Inside

Not to mention the brilliant remakes of The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House on the Left, Maniac, and Dawn of the Dead.

I wish I had the first clue why I bothered to sit through this movie. I really had no idea what it would be. I had the faintest hope that it wouldn't be so bad, I'd practically sit there in a coma waiting for it to end. It's easily the single most pointless horror movie of the last 10 years. Clearly, no one involved with the writing had seen a horror movie since maybe The Blair Witch Project. Which is shocking since there's a scene here trying to be Texas Chainsaw Massacre which comes off as ripping off Cabin Fever. And I do mean ripping off, since Cabin Fever was The Cabin in the Woods 10 years ago. It was self-aware and self-referential already. And it was actually a half-decent film (half bad & half decent at the same time).

Wrong Turn, High Tension, Saw, House of 1,000 Corpses, etc - these films were all made in a completely self-aware, horror-brat time in the genre. So... what the flying hell is this movie thinking? That it's stepping up the game by making it appear some corporation is involved... I'm sorry, I'm so profoundly flabbergasted that I can't even finish that sentence. It's all transparent, uninteresting, unnuanced ripping off of The Truman Show and Network. But the fact that they roped Sigourney Weaver and Richard Jenkins into this disaster makes me want to scream. This film literally steals everything it has. Somehow expecting us to forget stuff like the remake of Thirteen Ghosts. A brilliant strategy, really. Unfortunately for them, it was The Dark (2005) and Boogeyman (2005) that I forgot. And, soon to come, this movie. Congratulations, Whedon.

LOL The Cabin In the woods is an instant classic. you probably missed the point to the movie or didn't understand it.

Cabin is a SATIRE and basically Joss Whedon's love letter to the horror genre. Whedon is a master and we should all respect his genius in filmmaking, writing and just being awesome. He gave us The Avengers and not to mention this classic.

I got it, I really did, but I still didn't think it was very good. Just because there is something to get which honestly was completely obvious, doesn't mean I have to like it. I already stated my opinion a few pages back and its no skin off my nose if you enjoy it, I just hate the old "you didn't like it because you didn't get it" defence.

I legitimately did not enjoy the film.
