Way back in 1999 there was that little surprise hit called The Sixth Sense. Everyone was talking about it, but no one was spoiling it for those who hadn’t seen it yet. I finally got around to seeing it at the end of its theatrical run and was absolutely dumbfounded at what I witnessed. Not so much about the big reveal, but that I hadn’t heard a peep about it. Of course that was like, 40 billion years ago and technology isn’t what it is today. Nowadays I can’t even log on to Twitter without having an episode of The Walking Dead spoiled for me even though it had just ended 2 minutes prior and I was just getting ready to start it. It’s because of this reason, that I actually braved the theater on a Friday night, and paid full price to see Cabin in the Woods opening day.
This film has endured a little trouble getting to the big screen. It’s been completed for over two years but was caught up in the MGM bankruptcy debacle. Now we finally get to see just what all the hub bub bub was about and after watching the first trailer, I immediately went on a self-imposed black out. That one trailer actually showed way more than I would have liked, but I guess you have to entice the audience somehow right? You may have heard others say that it’s best to go into this film knowing as little about it as possible. Let me tell you, that is 100% true. In keeping with the spirit, I will do my damnedest to keep this as spoiler free as possible.
