Upfront: I am a bit of a Whedonite. There are plenty of things I am critical about and wholeheartedly think are bad in Firefly, Buffy, and Angel but overall I’m a huge fan of those series and what they do. I don’t mind Alien Resurrection and I have never gone back to watch any Rosanne. Whedon wrote the movie. Drew Goddard, the director, I am not familiar with at all but according to IMDB he was a writer on several Buffy and Angel episodes. The Cabin in the Woods is a difficult movie to talk about because there is so much to spoil so I will keep it simple and basic. There are two parts to this movie each with their own cast. The actual cabin in the woods section stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Kristen Connolly, Ann Hutchison, Fran Kranz (Topher from Dollhosue) and Jesse Williams. The other half primarily features Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Brian White, and Amy Acker (Fred from Angel, Illyria from Angel, Dr Saunders from Dollhouse). Cabin in the Woods is an outward examination of typical horror movie tropes.
