Well, myself and fellow Movie Maniac Mat are off to see Cabin in the Woods next week. This one is getting a lot of buzz- the ultimate 'fanboy' horror movie. The film has been produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and other iconic TV shows and directed by his longtime collaborator Drew Goddard, writer of Cloverfield. Now I have never been much of a Buffy fan although it still remains hugely popular, but Angel is certainly a lot of fun. Cloverfield, once you get past the 'queasy-cam' is quite effective, and I loved the look of the aliens/monsters. So I am quite interested to see what is going on in, and under The Cabin the Woods---I'll let you know.

I recently watched the remake of Fright Night with Colin Farrell as the Vampire next door. Round out the cast with Toni Collette from United States of Tara, Anton Yelchin from Star Trek Year One, and David Tennant, the 10th incarnation of Doctor Who, and you have a pretty good flick. I thought Colin struck just the right note between campy and evil. I found myself in equal measures, jumping, laughing, thinking 'great special effects and ' oh, that's just plain nasty'. What fun !!
