<i>The Cabin in the Woods</i>, <i>Detention</i> and the Art of the Self-Aware Horror Movie [No Spoilers]

The first rule of The Cabin in the Woods is that you do not talk about The Cabin in the Woods. Okay, that's not entirely accurate. By all means do talk about The Cabin in the Woods in order to lure your various friends, neighbors and countrymen (those that aren't easily squeamish, of course) into the theater to experience the devilishly clever riff on horror movies that co-writer/director Drew Goddard and co-writer/producer Joss Whedon have concocted here. But for the love of Tyler Durden, don't tell them anything more than the movie's basic premise: a group of kids head to a cabin in the woods where spooky -- and occasionally bloody -- things go down. Period. Full Stop. End of line.
