raping tree is an evil dead reference

again, it does help if you have a good working knowledge of the horror genre

Yeh, I used to watch tons of horror movies but have lost interest in most of them (especially those in a series) over the last several years. Not sure why. Not enough inventiveness or something? Gotten older? Whatever. I do like the occasional good, well written one, though.

apparently not

i kid

have you seen insidious? I think that's a really good one, even though the first half is MUCH better than the 2nd half

"the gods" are the viewing audience

"the gods" get angry when the horror movie isn't the same formulaic type of horror movie

"the gods" getting angry = you hating the ending

Dude, the light bulb went off and I did actually "git" it. Thanks, though.

actually, that's one i've been interested in. i'll take a look at it. i also like rose byrne.

btw, isn't there another one word title that sounds similar to "insidious" that came out within a year or two of it? or am i imagining it?

I thought it sucked personally.

Further demonstrating my retardation on the subject, what was the "raping tree" reference?
That was a reference to The Evil Dead. The girl gets raped by a tree in that movie.

Me and my buddy paused it on the white board to see how many horror movies we recognized.

I thought the movie was hilarious.

it's got some really legit scary scenes

I watched it alone at night in my home, and it actually did send some chills up my spine

it's kind of funny that since it didn't end the way you wanted, you then criticize the concept of the ancient gods, who were upset the way the movie within the movie ended...


my thoughts exactly

I did too, that board was great. One thing that makes this movie so great is the rewatchability factor.

I disagree. Yall had hyped it up so much on here, it was probably impossible to live up to my expectations. Im with VOR on this, I can appreciate a well written horror movie from time to time, but I wouldnt pay to see it in the movies. My comments were a bit exaggerated when I said "frickin awful", but not by much. The first half was decent, but the end just kinda blew it for me. It was very predictable and over drawn. It could have been an ok movie without the fluff and bull shite at the end. Sometimes less is better IMO.

Maybe but I've only seen a couple of horror movies and I loved and completely understood where Cabin in the Woods was coming from. Maybe it helps more to have a dislike for the horror genre. It probably also helps to be a fan of satire. Some of the furious reviews of TCITW are essentially icing on the cake.
