SUPERSTAR HORROR WEEK
THE CABIN IN THE WOODS
1st May at 21:55
From Buffy mastermind Joss Whedon and Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard comes a horror film with a difference. Like so many idiotic teenagers before them, five friends head out to a remote cabin in the woods for a weekend when they discover a basement filled with mysterious relics - and all hell breaks loose. With a stellar cast including Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford, this is an all-in-one critique, celebration and deconstruction of horror movies. Surprising, delightful and terrifying at every turn, it’s a total scream.

An upbeat employee at a bathtub factory, Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is seemingly normal – apart from the fact that he has conver- sations with his talking pets. When Jerry musters the courage to ask his crush Fiona (Gemma Arterton) out on a date, things go terribly – and fatally – wrong, leaving Jerry to turn to his evil cat Mr Whiskers and good-natured dog Bosco for help. As he struggles to make the best of a bad situation, things spiral murderously out of control. Reynolds is brilliant in this improb- ably layered film that veers from gory horror to humour.
