Another cabin, another woods, another cast to be offed
A bunch of 40 something actors playing 20 something roles while looking like 30 somethings in yet another "Cabin In The Woods" sub- genre flick. BAG - i.e. Brian Austin Greene is the most recognizable face here, who plays the heroic "every man" character - the mensch, the Ash Williams, if you will (sorry no de-handings). All the stereotypes are here - the slut, the ex-girlfriend, the brainiac, the nerd, the religious auger, the blonde bimbo (except it's a guy), the heroic girl, etc. The ginger kid from The Christmas Story is also here, all very grown-up, as the somewhat unhinged best friend (think Scott from The Evil Dead). There's also the mysterious dude who is dating BAG's old girlfriend. Oh, and Mena Suvari. Sorry, Mena, this ain't no American Beauty, but that movie kinda sucked in retrospect so it's not like you have fallen far. Well, anyway, you get the idea - buncha sexy kids out on a lark find a cabin in the woods (in this case, a Colorado resort 300 miles from anything else) which has become recently vacated. Slowly but surely, they start disappearing - whodunnit or whadunnit is the question. There's not much "horror" although tons of manufactured chills, people doing dumb stuff to move the plot along, dark secrets to be revealed, etc. etc.
