See this film: Cabin in the Woods @ the Brattle

Having whetted your appetite for extreme, gory violence taking place in a domestic setting with House of 1000 Corpses this past weekend you might want to advance to another version of the same scenario but with a metaphysical, postmodernist twist. Drew Goddard's The Cabin in the Woods contains allusions to virtually every gruesome thriller ever made, deconstructs the whole genre, and tosses in a mind-boggling twist as well. You know the drill: a bunch of college kids take off for a weekend to a spooky, isolated vacation spot, but in addition to the usual visceral thrills, the film touches on far deeper, existential terror. It's a lot for a horror movie, but you can handle it! It screens at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | Thursday, July 5-Sunday, July 8 | $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors | 617.876.6837 or
