It was okay. I wouldn't call it scary at all, but it really had an interesting plot. I enjoyed watching it even though I would classify it as possibly a thriller. Not a horror film though.

This was a very interesting idea and executed pretty well. I wouldn't classify it as horror though, but either sci-fi or thriller. Still, a really good movie with an interesting ending. Worth the rental.

Awesome twist to this movie, not a conventional horror. Left you hanging til the very end. Reccomend!

Not since "Scream" has a horror movie subverted the expectations that accompany the genre to such wicked effect as The Cabin in the Woods, a sly, self-conscious twist on one of slasher films' ugliest stepchildren: the coed campsite massacre. Full Review
The New York Times
Novelty and genre traditionalism often fight to a draw. Too much overt cleverness has a way of spoiling dumb, reliable thrills. And despite the evident ingenuity and strenuous labor that went into it, The Cabin in the Woods does not quite work. Full Review
A pulpy, deceivingly insightful send-up of horror movies that elicits just as many knowing chuckles as horrified gasps. Full Review
Los Angeles Times
The laughs come easily, the screams not so much. It's as if the filmmakers got so wrapped up in the satire they forgot to include the intense sensation of rising dread that creates all the thrills and chills that are part of the attraction. Full Review
The Cabin in the Woods is a fantastic poke in the eye of our horror-movie expectations. Full Review
