The Cabin in the Woods


Horror

Rod Lott
Josh Whedon is partially responsible for arguably the most creative pictures of this year, and I don’t mean The Avengers. I’m talking about The Cabin in the Woods, the horror film reputed to be a game-changer in the genre. It’s not the end-all-be-all film as hyped, but it is undeniably clever.

The Barrens

Something in Jersey is more demonic than Snooki.


Horror

Rod Lott
In a post-Saw world, Darren Lynn Bousman quietly has been making a series of horror films more in line with scary movies of the 1970s than the torture-porn genre he helped usher in. Already this year, DVD has brought us his superlative Mother's Day remake and the low-key demonic pic 11-11-11, and now The Barrens. It's just too bad they've all been denied wide theatrical releases.

Coma

Its pacing will put you under.


Television series

Rod Lott
Four years ago, cable remade the perfectly fine ’70s sci-fi thriller The Andromeda Strain, based upon Michael Crichton’s thriller, but needlessly doubled the running time, thereby cutting its effectiveness in half.

End of Watch / Officer Down

Two new releases shine a light on the shield.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm a sucker for a good cop movie, and End of Watch is a great one. Had I seen it before its home-video release, it would have made my 2012 year-end list.
