So all I knew about this was that it turned the horror genre on its head. But I didn’t know how. And holy crap. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, but this movie somehow explains every horror movie cliche without being a spoof. It’s somehow manages to be exciting, scary, funny, everything all at once. I would be laughing one minute and covering my face the next. It had me guessing all the way up until the very end. Definite kudos to Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard on the writing in this one. The crew of college co-eds (Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchinson, Fran Kanz, and Jesse Williams) were a great ensemble. But for me, Fran Kanz stole it. As the stoner who somehow is smarter than them all, I absolutely loved him. For fans of the horror genre, or anyone looking for something different, this is a definite must see.
