A group of young people go to a cabin (in the woods, naturally) for a little relaxation. While there they discover there is evil abound, but what (or who) is behind it is what is truly shocking. I remember walking out of the theatre after seeing this film and thinking it was going to end up being a horror favorite of mine, and having just watched it again (for probably the fifth time) I think I can confirm this initial belief. The idea of the film is original, yet is a nod to MANY horror films in the past. The comedy in it is genuinely funny. The special effects are very well done. The acting is good for the most part--the stoner character is even likable. The monsters/creatures are a combination of terrifying and jaw dropping in their detail and sheer coolness. The scene when all the monsters are finally revealed is an instant classic in the realm of horror films (if you want to watch it, see below). The only real drawbacks to the film for me are a rather slow opening and an ending that leaves a bit to be desired--these are small complaints, however, and certainly not enough to detract from the film by any significant measure. I highly recommend this film to any horror fan.
