It Follows vs. The Cabin in the Woods



on 9/7/2018

Well gosh. These are two of my very favorite horrors ever but for very different reasons. It Follows has a wonderfully bleak atmosphere with a constant sense of dread while Cabin In the Woods is that perfectly self aware Whedonesque at its best with Drew Goddard at the helm. I think I'm going with TCIIW because it's incredibly delightful at times and give me plenty of smiles when I probably shouldn't be smiling. I didn't smile during It Follows. I kept seeing people walking toward me slowly at night.
