James Jay Edwards of FilmFracture writes: "The Cabin in the Woods is not just a highly anticipated horror film, but it's also a very well kept secret. On the surface, it appears to be just another slasher-in-the-woods film, but initial looks are deceiving. The film is full of clever plot points and ingenious twists that make it full of fun. It was written by Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon and "Lost" co-producer Drew Goddard (who also directs), and it's packed with the supernatural mystery and beyond-belief craziness that audiences have come to know and love from them. The script is incredibly well-written, at times seeming like two movies molding into one; the horror film occurring in the cabin and the tongue-in-cheek comedy happening in the bunker. Although it keeps the audience guessing, the film never feels like the writers are just making stuff up on the fly; every element makes sense and falls together, even if it does so in an improbable way.
