* GenreSavvy:
** The whole movie can be seen as a subversion of the concept, as the main characters often exhibit GenreSavvy but every time they do so [[spoiler: the controllers sabotage them so that the sacrifice can proceed according to plan]].
** More conventionally, Marty is the only truly Genre Savvy member of the group. The moment they arrive at the cabin, it's obvious that he feels that the whole place is wrong somehow. His warnings about handling the items in the cellar were spot-on, but no one was listening. [[spoiler:because the drugs that were supposed to make sure he wouldn't be were neutralized by his heavy marijuana use]].

''The Cabin in the Woods'' is a 2012 horror movie that sets itself apart from ''other'' horror movies by virtue of its co-writers[[note]]Creator/JossWhedon and Drew Goddard (''{{Film/Cloverfield}}''), who also directed this film[[/note]] and by deconstructing both the "cabin in the woods" setting and the horror genre. The film stars ChrisHemsworth, Fran Kranz, Kristen Connolly, [[PowerRangersJungleFury Anna]] [[{{Underbelly}} Hutchison]], Jesse Williams, Creator/AmyAcker, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford. There's also a [[Literature/TheCabinInTheWoods book adaptation]]. In 2013, Ride/UniversalStudios Orlando's ''Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights'' event featured a haunted attraction based on the film.

%%* TakingYouWithMe:

to:

%%* TakingYouWithMe:** To whit: [[spoiler: Dana (the Virgin) is introduced dancing around in a T-shirt and panties, and is quickly revealed to have just gotten out of a torrid (or at least highly unethical) affair with one of her professors, Jules (the Whore) chastises her for it and is revealed to be a pre-med student, Curtis (the Warrior) actually recommends to Dana a better book to read for a specific class to impress that professor and is later revealed to be a sociology major, Holden (the Scholar) is the more stereotypically jock-type, and Marty (the Fool), while indeed a stoner, is shown to be rather intelligent and very philosophical in his initial appearance (and could be a downright genius if he built the massive collapsing coffee-mug bong himself).]]
* TakingYouWithMe: The new Security officer for the organization detonates a grenade to blow himself up along with a pack of zombies. In a less (or more?) heroic version, [[spoiler: Marty and Dana elect to survive the organization's attempts to kill them, thus dooming themselves and ''everyone on Earth'' to die when the Ancient Ones awaken.]]

* MoodWhiplash: The movie is exceedingly fond of making hilarious jokes instants before gruesome events, and vice-versa.

* MoodWhiplash: The movie is exceedingly fond of making hilarious jokes instants before gruesome events, and vice-versa. It's Creator/JossWhedon, this trope is pretty much a given.
