Let those slay bells ring! US, 95 min
Fans of quality modern horror should make a beeline for this surprisingly inventive slasher flick during its limited season. Yes, there is a cabin. Yes, it is located in the woods. And yes, a collection of shopping-cataloguemodel teens is destined to be selectively ripped to shreds. But that is only half the picture of a much bigger picture, and I’m not going to be the one to spoil the real fun on offer here. If you trust in all things Joss Whedon (director of the recent Avengers triumph), then mere mention of his skilful and inventive co-scripting collaboration with talented Drew Goddard will be recommendation enough.
