Fanbase Feature: 10th Anniversary Retrospective on ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ (2012)

As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.

In this Fanbase Feature, The Fanbase Weekly co-hosts Bryant Dillon and Claire Thorne participate in a thorough discussion regarding The Cabin in the Woods (2012) in light of the film’s 10th anniversary, with topics including the memories of initial reactions to the film’s mystery, the film’s critique of the “torture porn” genre, if the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few when it comes to the film’s plot point of human sacrifice, and more. (Beware: SPOILERS for The Cabin in the Woods abound in this panel discussion!)
