The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin, where they get more than they bargained for, discovering the truth behind the cabin in the woods. (IMDb)
Solid scares in the cabin, but it was the other setting that really brought the horror. That scene with the dock events in the background of the party at headquarters will stick with me for a while; it was truly disturbing on its own movie level and more so when considering its clever and biting meta angle. Fittingly, with that shot of the bloody mess in the elevator lobby also still lingering in my brain, this was my last horror movie of the Halloween season, and maybe for a while after that.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
