The Cabin in the Woods
Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy ($34.99)
A devilishly clever twist on horror movies, pop culture and mythology, this mind bender of a movie starts with a group of young people (including Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Huthison, Fran Kranz and Jesse Williams) who head off for a weekend of partying in the so-called cabin in the woods. But they soon find they’re pawns in something much bigger and more nightmarish, watched by lab-coated technicians (Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitworth) as they control everything behind the scenes. It’s a bloody blast that plays on the conventions of just about every other scary movie that’s ever been, while boldly, brazenly going where no other monster movie has ever gone before. Bonus content includes several behind-the-scenes and making-of features.
