I loved house of the devil. The 80s feel really grabbed me and had me hooked even though it was pretty slow going sometimes.
Cabin in the woods for me is the most impressive mainstream I've seen in a long while. It was funny, gory, jumpy, unexpected and a real good time! I've not felt like I was having fun while watching a movie in a while. There are films I love but are so hard to get through. Cabin in the woods for me was perfect in it's ballance. It's great fun to watch the monsters and pick out which movies and tv series they were from. There were nods to classics everywhere and even little nods to his own Buffy and Angel. People tell me there were references to his other work but I've not seen much of it. When that hits DVD I'm there!
