I'm a few years too late, but I'll be watching the horror-comedy "The Cabin in the Woods" tonight. Horror movies just don't do it for me; if their intent is to frighten, they fail miserably at that, and I'm long past the age when such films might give me nightmares. Horror-comedies, on the other hand, are often snide parodies of the horror genre, and I generally love those. So I'll be watching "The Cabin in the Woods" tonight, and later this week, I'll be re-watching (and finally reviewing) "Tucker and Dale Versus Evil," which is a gut-busting subversion of the "college kids meet scary hicks in the woods" subgenre.

I'm sure I'll comment on your eventual review. The Cabin in the Woods is one of the smartest plays on the horror genre you're ever going to see.
