The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

The Cabin in the Woods is a complex movie, even if simple at first sight. It has many layers, many intentions and many languages, in a perfectly cohesive presentation. On a first layer we have a traditional horror movie built on a cliché that ultimately defines it, like a group of 5 students that are going to spend the weekend on a "cabin in the woods", where they face evil threats. On a second layer we have a company that follows and manipulates what happens on the cabin, presenting a reality show/Hostel voyeurism satyr. Finally, and most importantly, on a third layer, we are faced with a homage to the modern horror genre itself in what is both a deconstruction, a critic, an honest thank-you, and, at the end, a representation of all of the above in the movie itself: The Cabin in the Woods implies all of this, but at the same time IS all of this. The Cabin in the Woods is a very relevant movie about a genre that builds its own pleasure on its clichés, which can't be blamed, but can be evidenced: the movie praises them with the respect they deserve through a very attentive, informed eye that really loves to enjoy itself.
