  • I finally watched this movie the other night. I rather enjoyed it. I enjoy horror movies, but clearly not enough because most of those references just flew right past me. I even failed to catch some the of the Evil Dead nods, which is embarrassing because I have seen those movies.

      Its cool. I had to watch the movie numerous times and went frame by frame on some of them to get the ones on the monitors.

  • This movie was so much fun, but it came out in a year I consider quite fat with good movies, it just barely made it into my top5 for 2012. I am glad the creative team of Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon is now so prominent and influential.

    “Avengers”, “Django Unchained”, “Cloud Atlas”, “Dredd”, “The Cabin in the Woods”, and “Looper”

      ’12 was a great year for movies.

    The “Ancient Ones” are also a pretty good Lovecraft reference.

    Great article – like a DVD extra. Didn’t get most of these when I watched it first time but will have to give it a go. And maybe see the B-movies I haven’t seen already.

    On a side note I hope the film wasn’t parodying Guillermo del Toro. I love his peculiar brand of “clockwork horror” and how Pan’s Labyrinth missed out on a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars is beyond me. The artistic eye he has really lends itself to a unique view on horro.
