In this episode, the Fear Fan takes a closer look at meta-horror with the modern classic The Cabin in the Woods.
“It’s really amusing to watch each character get slowly dumbed down before our eyes. It’s like watching the history of slasher films itself, as each sequel becomes stupider, more clichéd, and less human and enjoyable.”
“I lost count of the number of shots of Pitt staring off into the distance in horror, or looking back over his shoulder in slow-mo while running from the zombie hordes.”
