Cabin in the Woods
Stop me if you've heard this one. Five college friends rent an RV and head for an isolated cabin in a remote forest. They stop at a gas station, where a creepy man warns them that those who go to the cabin will never return. But they ignore his warnings. There's a hot leading man (Chris Hemsworth), a party girl (Anna Hutchison), a stoner (Fran Kranz), a loveless romantic (Jessie Williams), and an innocent virgin (Kristen Connolly). Upon arriving at the cabin, they party like there's no tomorrow. But when the five teens wander into the basement, all hell breaks loose. This sounds like a typical campfire tale, but there's much more to “The Cabin” than meets the eye.
