Hey Everybody,

I was working on a Mattel boardgames commercial shoot in June of 2009 at North Shore Studios In North Vancouver and I happened to see a friend, Sondra who’s a wardrobe supervisor I hadn’t seen in a while outside one of the other studios on the lot. I went over to say hello and notices some extras dressed as zombie types walking into the stage drenched in fake blood and instantly was interested. After a few pleasantries, I asked Son what show exactly she was on? She said it was called Mordecai,  Joss Whedon was the co-writer and producer the writer of Colverfield (Drew Goddard) was the director co-writer, knowing what level of film geek I am she suggested I should to take a quick peek at the set.

Upon entering the stage I saw a few other friends in the lighting and camera departments, immediately I was pulled into the Basement Elevator set with the talk up of “Oh My God, You are going to love this shit…”. The perfect fake red blood color soaked from floor to ceiling with piles of bloody guts thrown all over the floor, the 80′ by 100′ foot construction was one of the raddest sets I’ve ever seen in 18 years . A great surreal day. The real question, after two years on the shelf is The Cabin In The Woods (working title:Mordecai) any good?

It really is a great fun crazy hard core horror film with a very cool mythology build in. It overruns with what all the latest PG-13 or CG inspired bloodless and/or boobless horror movies these days often lack, clever writing,  smart casting, great direction and  understanding of the genre. It has a lot of fun turning things on it’s ear and any fan of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s horror and fantasy will find lots to love and take in during multiple viewings.Veteran actors Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford  start the film off with an everyday conversation amongst colleagues who has worked together for years, quickly interrupted by a lab coat type Amy Acker, seemingly worried about the US and Japan being the only ones left to deal with some event fairly important to the entire world.  The two guys make a few off handed jokes like it’s just another day at the office and drive away in a golf cart asking whether she’s in the betting pool yet or not.

Once you get to see young stars Kristen Connolly, Fran Kranz, Anna Hutchison, Chris Hemsworth, Jesse Williams,  you’re already pretty sure you’ll be in for something super fun and different entertainment.  I’m extremely happy Lionsgate got this film out of the MGM collapse and also grateful that the studio listened to the film makers and didn’t 3D-a-fi this one, it plays just fine in 2D fellas.

The thing is with this film is the less you know about it, really the better the first viewing is for sure. If you find your self at the theater this weekend and Marvel’s Avengers is sold out or just it’s not your particular cup of tea, you should most definitely check out yourself some Cabin In the Woods. I think you’ll enjoy it much more that you think, a fun well crafted R rated horror film.

Till Next Time. Stay Tuned.
