The Cabin in the Woods

Synopsis: Five teenagers head off for a weekend at a secluded cabin in the woods. They arrive to find they are quite isolated with no means of communicating with the outside world. When the cellar door flings itself open, they of course go down to investigate. They find an odd assortment of relics and curios, but when one of the women, Dana, reads from a book, she awakens a family of deadly zombie killers. However, there's far more going on than meets the eye.

And you have no pants.

Oh, shit!

- That pretty much it?

-Fucking better be.

You know, Jules,

it's a weekend, not an evacuation.

Trust me when I say there

is nothing in those cases..

you won't be glad I brought.

I'm shutting' right up.

Oh, my God.


F*ck is wrong with you, bro?

People in this town drive

in a very counterintuitive manner.

That's what I have to say.

Do you wanna spend

the weekend in jail?

We'd all like to check

out my cousin's country home.

Honey, that's not okay.

Statistical fact..

Cops will never pull over

a man with a huge bong in his car.


They fear this man.

They know he sees further than they..

and he will bind them

with ancient logics.

Have you gone gray?

You're not bringing

that thing in the Rambler.


A giant bong in your father's van?

What are you, stoned?

Hey, man.

Dana, you fetching minx!

You have any food?

Everybody ready?

- Yeah!


- Okay, I'm ready!

Let's get this show on the road!

Nest is empty. We're right on time.

I hope this is the right road.

It doesn't even show up on the GPS.

It is unworthy of global positioning.

That's the whole point.

Get off the grid, right?

No cell phone reception..

no traffic cameras.

Go someplace for one goddamn

weekend where they can't..

globally position my ass, man.

This is the whole issue.

Is society crumbling, Marty?

No. Society is binding. Right?

It's filling in the

cracks with concrete.

Everything's filed or

recorded or blogged, right?

Chips in our kids' heads

so they won't get lost.

Society needs to crumble.

We're all just too

chicken-shit to let it.

I've missed your rants.

You will come to see things my way.

Identification, please.

Mr. Sitterson.

Mr. Hadley.

- Thank you.

What's your name?

- Daniel Truman, sir.
