From the Visual Companion to The Cabin in the Woods: Some stuff had to get cut from the monster rampage sequence at the end. The Angry Molesting Tree, which you can glimpse in the elevator in one scene, got much more molest-y in another shot, which might wind up as a DVD extra. Also, one of Goddard's favorite monsters was Kevin, a sweet-looking guy who ...

Blue letters represent the group which bid on the monster. Do you remember the scene at the start of the movie where they start collecting money from the people working ? That's what the money is for. For example in the movie The Redneck Torture family was chosen by the characters. The Maintenance team bet on that before the group spends their night at the ...

As per The Cabin in the Woods Wikia- The System Purge, also called just the Purge or the Carnage, was when Marty Mikalski and Dana Polk unleashed all the monsters in the glass rooms into The Facility. This was accomplished with a button in the control panel marked "System Purge." During the Purge, each and every one of The Facilities monsters are ...

Reading a plot summary of Thirteen Ghosts it seems like the ghosts are trapped by inscriptions written on the glass, so there is nothing specifically important about the glass rooms (please correct). There is no indication in The Cabin in the Woods that the glass rooms had a similar confinement - the use of glass seems unimportant - perhaps other ...

Have you watched Sin city? I am supposing that Elija Wood's character Kevin could be the reference. I thought it could be a take on Jason from the story writer's perspective.

The only thing that I can think of is that this is designed to purge - i.e. destroy or remove all the 'nightmares' in the complex. It would have to be used in conjunction with whatever you needed to kill everything, poison gas or whatever supernatural 'thing' you need to do the job. That said, you would need to have this 'agent' available, plus to leave ...

From an interview with director and co-writer Drew Goddard: Question: Out of all the horror movies you've seen, pick one that you feel pushed your inspiration more than any other with "Cabin in the Woods". Drew Goddard: I don't know that I can pick one. Let me pick three. I'm gonna pick "The Thing", I'm going to pick "Dr. Strangelove", and I'm ...

Just as the ritual is rigged against the kids (they're forced into playing archetypal roles and making fatal decisions via drugs and subliminals), it's rigged against the facility workers. I think the button only exists for a survivor to push; if they make it that far, they must choose between self sacrifice or self interest (which dooms humanity). When the ...

I suspected that it stood as the absolute last ditch effort to kill the victims. Everyone in that facility knew their job, and that the youth must die at all costs. If all else fails, release EVERY BAD THING EVER, and hope for the best. Clean up crew can come by later to fix it up if there is still a world to fix.

I just stumbeled across this movie title the other day, and it reminded me of this question. The movie title was We Need To Talk About Kevin. I believe that this may have been the movie that was being referenced on the white board. here's part of the plot synopsis from Wikipedia: Adolescent Kevin Katchadourian (Ezra Miller) is in prison after ...

"Kevin" is an analogue to "Jason" from the Friday the 13th movies. (It may also be a reference to Kevin Williamson, the writer of the Scream films.)
