Do you ever watch a horror movie and think that you know the story? Do you believe there is nothing left to be surprised by in a genre filled with tropes and clichés? Drew Goddard’s The Cabin in the Woods might just be the film for you. The Cabin in the Woods tells a familiar tale.

"The Blair Witch Project" - Three film students vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind. One of the first found-footage horror movies I've seen. I'm not a big fan of the genre but this was pretty unique when it came out. Image and info credit: IMDb.
"The Descent" - A caving expedition goes horribly wrong, as the explorers become trapped and ultimately pursued by a strange breed of predators. One of the best horror movies I've ever seen. Info and image credit: IMDb.
The Midnight Meat Train (2008) - Photographer witnesses brutal murders & horror on late night subway train. Worth a watch. Though it had a predictable ending, it also had an original storyline, wicked humour, good gore & some squirmalicious moments. All-star cast led by Bradley Cooper & Vinnie Jones. The CGI dragged it down for me & the "creatures" were too fake looking, but still worth watching once.
