Cabin in the Woods - Movie Review

I love scarey stories so when both my sons said I might like this show I had to watch it. On Saturday night, I bought some Erin's popcorn and curled up on the couch with my hubby.

It started out with a bang and my husband and I looked at each other. If the show went like this, it couldn't last long. People were dying quicker than I could remember their names.

The thing I liked about the show was the premise. It was a story about multiple monsters in the world and people actually choosing the way they die. Of course the choices were bad and worse. And this Hunger Games type of sacrificial game was all for the gods to be entertained...or that's what I got out of it.

The thing I didn't like was that there was no back story to the kids who were being sacrificed. No Peta, No Gayle, No Prim...nothing to make us look back and think, "Oh No! I don't want her/him to die."

It was just senseless sacrifice.

So, overall I would rate it a D+ to a C-... Okay, but not on my recommended movie list.

How bout you? Have you seen it? What did you think?
