Field Trip #3: The Cabin in the Woods
We decided to take a break from Riley drama, and check out this Joss Whedon co-written romp on our third field trip.
Dana, Jules, Curt, Marty and Holden head out for a relaxing weekend in a rustic cabin. But they're completely unaware that their lives are being manipulated by an international conglomerate seeking to offer these five friends as a sacrifice to the ancient ones.
Due to the corporate handlers' interference, the gang gradually falls into horror genre stereotypes. Their shenanigans eventually raise a family of zombie pain-worshipping rednecks. As their friends fall one-by-one fall victim to the Buckners' terror, it seems the technicians' plan will successfully annihilate all the friends. But then again, Marty's not quite as "foolish" as they thought.
Chris from Hey, Do You Remember? joins us as we discuss the production difficulties, the meta message the story attempts, and whether or not the temple ending works for each of us.
