The Cabin in the Woods (Official Trailer)

Rated R16.

Starring Kiwi Anna Hutchison, horror flick The Cabin in the Woods is a surprising watch. Five uni students go into the forest for a vacation and are attacked by ghoulish creatures or depraved rednecks. We’ve heard this kind of horror story before, but this film festival favourite – with a script penned by Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon – turns the spooky clichés on their axes. A mysterious group of lab workers watch and revel as the teens run for their lives – and it becomes clear there is more to this story than meets the eye. Avoid looking at spoilers for this film on the internet to keep the surprises scary.

Rating: 3.5/5
