That Thing You Like #33 – Cabin in the Woods (Happy Halloween!)

Cabin in the Woods Review

It’s a spoooooooky Halloween episode! THAT THING YOU LIKE goes next level on Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s CABIN IN THE  WOODS! A movie that actually goes next level on the entire dang horror genre.

Though our hosts were separated by a vast expanse, no effort was spared in making sure this podcast was brought to you, dear listeners! We had a great time talking about the movie’s amazing sense of humour, its clever script, and its insanely smart meta-textual commentary. Seriously. A movie so smart, even the marketing plays into the theme they were trying to get across!

Have a favourite horror movie? Also love Cabin in the Woods? Let us know! Leave us a comment, or get at us on Twitter. And, if you could share the show or leave us a review on iTunes, we’ll love you forever. We’ll love you like Bradley Whitford loves the idea of a dangerous Merman.
