The Cabin in the Woods
Directed by: Drew Goddard
Starring – Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins

It looks like any other slasher horror film. In fact, it looks like a Friday the 13th knockoff. It starts just like any basic scary movie begins—a group of friends travel to a cabin in the woods where there’s no cell phone service or any help for miles. But when geek god Joss Whedon (he produced and help write the film) and Thor are involved, things won’t be what they seem. And Cabin in the Woods knocks the surprise out of the park. Along with its share of scares, Cabin is able to create a comical satire on the state of horror cinema.

Plus it has Thor. Did I mention that already? I mean the guy can made a stinker like Snow White and the Huntsman watchable, that takes talent. Surely whatever expectations one has when putting the Blu-Ray disc into the player, he or she will not come close to what Cabin in the Woods has in store.
