Clif-Notes: Cabin in the Woods

How do I tell you of this movie without ruining it..... This may not be easy.
Cabin is about five friends who go out to the woods to spend the weekend at the cabin. Only things aren't what they seem. They're being watched and being set up, all for reasons you will never guess until they start telling you.
Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard (Let Me In & Cloverfield), this movie had me locked the whole time. First off, it's much more comedy than they ever let you know. It's still very bloody (especially at the end) and has those tense moments where you're just waiting for something to jump out at ya but the jokes are what really makes this movie flow. The people behind it all look at it as just another day. They crack jokes, hope to see boobs and even take bets on how the campers will die.
And the end is ridiculous. In a great way. I definitely won't tell you what happens but it's something that should stay with you for a while. Unless you hate the movie, in which you'll try to forget it all. But why would you hate this amazing film? Answer: you won't. I actually wanted to stay in the theater and see it again. It was fun from start to finish and I loved it. Best movie of the year so far (sorry 21 Jump Street and Chronicle) and the best movie experience I've had in a while.
