Chasing the feel of watching The Cabin in the Woods ? Here are the movies we recommend you watch right after.

5 kids go to a cabin in the woods. Heard it all before, right? Wrong. This movie twists, parodies, and praises Horror as a genre, while still maintaining a satisfying story. Joss Whedon once described it as a "loving hate letter to the horror genre." It's a hilarious, clever meta-horror-comedy (think Tucker and Dale vs Evil), so don't go in expecting a hugely terrifying movie. There are elements here of horror, comedy, and drama. The movie tries to explain the cultural need for horror movies. Don't go in expecting anything at all. The less you know about the movie the more satisfying it will be. Still not convinced? This movie features a unicorn that stabs people.
