Listen to The Rube’s Plee: Go see The Cabin in the Woods Now!

Cabin in the Woods

Cabin in the Woods - Mondo posterI know that it’s been out for over a month now, but I want you guys to take a break from watching The Avengers for the seventeenth time and go see The Cabin in the Woods. Why? Well, not to spoil too much about the movie, but you’ll have to understand one thing: The Cabin in the Woods is not a teenage slasher movie, it’s a MONSTER MOVIE! Yes, a MONSTER MOVIE with a F*CK’N SHITLOAD OF MONSTERS!

I won’t tell you how or when they show up, but there’s a good mix of over 20 different monsters in this film, mostly done with practical special effects and puppetry. Yeah, you can wait for the DVD to come out, but trust me, if you’re bored and need take a break from watching that “other summer blockbuster,” don’t spend your hard earned money on The Dictator (SLAP! What’s wrong with you?!?!) and go see The Cabin in the Woods instead. You’ll thank me for it!
