''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.

** One of the video screens from the array seen immediately after The Carnage shows an overhead view of ''something'' creeping steadily down a hallway on its belly. [[spoiler: It's the Merman, on its way to Control where it'll kill Hadley.]]

%%* 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.

** One of the locations on the monitors that show the other [[spoiler:failed]] rituals around the world is Stockholm: a helicopter flies over ruined buildings in a snowy terrain. It's either a nod to the final minutes of ''Film/TheThing2011'' or a direct reference to ''Film/TheThing1982''.
