The Cabin in the Woods is a spin on the horror genre from writer's Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, without giving away the spoilerish parts of the plot, I'll simply say that it involves 5 friends who fit the horror movie stereotypes (Jock, Slut, Party-Guy, Nerd, Virgin) who go to a cabin in the woods to party and get away from it all.
Nevertheless, Whedon and Goddard not only bring us a refreshing take on the horror genre, but raise interesting questions as to whether or not a character in a horror film can maintain a sense of individualism and be capable of making their own choices and still be a part of the genre.
Cabin in the Woods establishes the signposts of its apparent genre early on five hot teens go to a remote cabin for a weekend of drunken Truth or Dare, swimming and sex.
