“The Cabin in the Woods”: A Movie Celebrating the Elite’s Ritual Sacrifices



"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

“The Cabin in the Woods” is a widely successful horror film that also obtained great critical acclaim. While many appreciated the movie for its wit, humor, and originality, the movie’s storyline is nevertheless serious and very real: It depicts the elite’s use of occult rituals on the unsuspecting masses. We’ll look at the symbolic meaning of “The Cabin in the Woods”.

Warning: Major spoilers ahead!

Considered to be “groundbreaking” and a “game-changer” by movie critics, The Cabin in the Woods contains many elements of classic horror films while adding interesting new elements to the mix. It continually refers to and comments on the horror movie genre, praising some aspects of it while poking fun at the many clichés that are found in the genre. The basic plot has been seen many times as it involves zombies running after teenagers that are so dumb and generic that you almost want them to die. But there is more to the story than hack and slash: It is about elite puppeteers overseeing a massive blood ritual using mind control and high tech monitoring. In the end, The Cabin in the Woods is a metaphor for our heavily controlled society that is under the control of dark, hidden forces. The movie was co-written and directed by Joss Whedon, who also created Dollhouse a TV series that tackled the concept of mind control in a rather obvious way.

At first glance, the characters of the movie are heavily clichéd, to the point that it is absurd. We have the typical jock, the typical slutty girl, the typical stoner, the boring smart guy and the timid prude virgin. These teenagers are purposely generic to comment on the boringness of characters in bad horror movies, but, as the story unfolds, we also discover that they were selected and manipulated by an organization to fully embody specific archetypes in order to complete a ritual.

The heroes (or the victims) of the movie are somewhat uni-dimensional. We soon learn that they were manipulated to become that way.

As the movie progresses, many key aspects of the occult elite and its way of functioning are described in vivid detail: Mediatised mega-rituals, occult secret societies, mind control, high-tech monitoring and so forth. At the end of the movie, one might realize that these scared and confused teenagers running around and falling into traps are…us, aka the masses. Let’s look at the elements found in the movie and analyze their full significance.

The Nameless Organization

At the beginning of the movie, we see five friends hopping into a van and driving to a cabin in the woods (hence the title of the movie) where fun, alcohol and teenage frolicking awaits. The pals, however, don’t know that this weekend of apparent partying is, in fact, a big ritual sacrifice conducted by a high-level, international organization.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

Never named in the movie, the organization behind the blood sacrifice utilizes high-tech facilities across the world and appears to have plenty of resources and employees. Can we associate this organization with the occult elite, the NWO and its secret facilities? Yes, yes we can.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

Simply looking at the command center, we understand that is not a small, clandestine operation, but a highly sophisticated organization dealing with military tracking equipment that is only available at the highest governmental levels.

The organization’s sole purpose is to set up high-profile mega-rituals involving the deaths of civilians across the world in order to appease dark forces beneath the Earth. These rituals are made possible through the manipulation of certain individuals into doing certain things, causing them to unknowingly become participants in an occult ritual. This concept has been discussed several times on this site as mega-rituals involving symbolic elements and blood sacrifices do happen in real life, where everything is staged and set up to obtain maximum exposure and magickal potency.

Although this is a very obscure and taboo subject, some occult researchers have determined that many mediatized events are actually mega-ritual carried out to fulfill specific occult objectives. Whether we go as far as Jack the Ripper or as recently as the Batman killings, some murders are actually set up to follow specific rules and to imprint society with specific symbols.

“Of course, many serial murders are nothing more than the work of a single individual acting out a graphic horror movie he saw, or responding to powerful “psychotic” impulses for aggression and predation. But many other serial murders involve a cult protected by the U.S. government and the corporate media, with strong ties to the police. These murders are actually intricately choreographed rituals; performed first on a very intimate and secret scale, among the initiates themselves in order to program them, them on a grand scale, amplified incalculably by the electronic media. In the end what we have is a highly symbolic, ritual working broadcast to millions of people, a Satanic inversion; a Black mass, where the “pews” are filled by the entire nation and through which humanity is paganized, brutalized and debased in this, the “Nigredo” phase of the alchemical process.

The French adept Antonin Artaud, architect of the theory of the “Theater of Cruelty” with its transformative power, and the inspiration for the extreme sex-and-death media of our time, had this to say about the processing of the Group Mind: ‘Aside from trifling witchcraft of country sorcerers, there are tricks of global hoodoo in which all alerted consciousnesses participate periodically… That is how strange forces are aroused and transported to the astral vault, to that dark dome which is composed above all of… the poisonous aggressiveness of the evil minds of most people… the formidable tentacular oppression of a kind of civic magic which will soon appear undisguised.’

The issue of controlling humanity with esoteric words and symbols encoded within a play, a media spectacular or a ritual is one of the most difficult for people to comprehend. That is why most people are viewed with utter contempt as “cowans,” “the profane,” the “gentiles” and the “goyim” (cattle) by secret society initiates. “I think we are farmed,” Charles Fort said of humanity. It was Fort who also suggested that man deliberately invented the dogma of materialism in order to shield himself from the evidence of what was being done to him by means of psycho- spiritual warfare methods hyped by “coincidence,” symbolism and ritual.”
– Michael A. Hoffman, Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare

Although the above quote was written more than 20 years ago, it perfectly describes the plot of The Cabin in the Woods which, in turn, describes mega-rituals in a direct but very caricatural matter. By doing so, the movie reveals the elite’s way of functioning while fictionalizing it – it puts everything out in the open while making people believe that “it’s just a movie”. While there is a lot of satire and foolishness in the movie, its underlying concept is truer than most would believe.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

The shady organization carries out rituals across the world, some of which succeed and others fail. Most are made to appear as “accidents” and those that succeed are widely publicized across the world.

This elite organization, as powerful as it is, only obeys the will of dark forces called “The Ancients” and “the gods”. The “technicians” overseeing the ritual are actually members of an occult brotherhood and their job is to make sure rituals are complete.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

After the death of the first victim, we see one of the technicians reciting a dark prayer and then kissing a pendant bearing the secret society’s magical symbol. Like in real life, some operations that appear to be about science and pragmatism are actually motivated by very obscure and occult reasons.

So the U.S. branch of this shady Organization manipulates five all-American students to go spend a weekend in a remote cabin in the woods. The cabin is set up in an environment that is totally artificial and controlled by the puppet masters. In fact, the cabin and its surrounding is one big TV recording studio, complete with mics and cameras, mind-altering drugs to control the actors and remote-controlled doors and light effects.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

As the teenagers drive towards the cabin’s location, we realize that they are entering a “virtual” zone that is totally created by and controlled by the organization. Inside of it, the teenagers become puppets at the hand of high-tech puppet masters.

The Sacrificial Lambs

Once arrived at the cabin, the teenagers are made to embody specific archetypes in order to complete the ritual drama required by the gods. It, therefore, needs to be carried out in a specific matter and it needs to completely recorded and televised. The “gods” require the death of five specific archetypes in the ritual drama: The w---e, the athlete, the fool, the scholar and the virgin.

The W---e

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

In the brotherhood’s temple are displayed stone tablets representing each archetype that needs to be slain. This one represents the w---e.

Right from the start of the movie, the character named Jules Louden plays the role of an s-bomb that appears to be aroused by anything. During her (short) stay at the cabin, she constantly feels the urge to talk about doin’ it or to dance like a stripper. We, however, learn that Jules is not being herself: She was drugged and manipulated to become the proverbial w---e. Upon closer look, an astute viewer might realize that Jules Louden bears many characteristics of a Sex Kitten mind control slave.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

The first scene involving Jules emphasizes the fact that she dyed her hair blond. In Mind Control symbolism, blond hair is used to identify Beta Kittens – Marylin Monroe programming. We then learn that the “puppet masters” laced her hair dye with chemicals to reduce cognition and to augment her libido.

So Jules is not usually a w---e – she was manipulated and drugged into becoming one, the same way the elite uses mind control to make regular girls become Beta Kittens (think of the many slutty “celebrities” that started off “normal”). In the cabin, Jules displaying the typical behavior of an MK slave, a victim of Beta programming.

“BETA is referred to as “sexual” programming (slaves). This programming eliminates all learned moral convictions and stimulates the primitive instinct, devoid of inhibitions. “Cat” alters may come out at this level.”
– Ron Patton, Project Monarch

The most obvious example of Beta Kitten behavior occurs when Jules is “dared” to make-out with a wolf head mounted on the cabin wall. She engages in a disturbingly long make-out session with the wolf head, as her friends awkwardly watch. The scene ends with Jules saying “thank you” to the wolf, confirming that the drugs she was given completely eliminated her inhibitions.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

Jules is getting a lot of pleasure making out with this wolf head because she was programmed to accomplish such tasks. B--------y is only one of the twisted things actual Beta Kittens are ordered to do by their handlers.

The puppet masters make it clear that Jules needs to be sacrificed first – because she is a w---e and therefore corrupted. This needs to happen in a very specific matter in order to follow dark occult principles. The technicians want her to be killed during coitus and, more specifically, when she is nearing climax. Magick principles stipulate that individuals accumulate the most “life force” during the moments right before climax. Sacrificing a person right at that moment would, therefore, ensure the most magickal potency to a ritual.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

The technicians closely monitor Jules copulating with the jock, hoping that she will take her shirt off. Explaining the ritual to an “outsider” who doesn’t understand why she MUST undress, a technician says: “We’re not the only ones watching…Got to keep the customer satisfied. You understand what’s at stake here?” In other words, the ritual needs to be graphic and fully broadcasted to be considered a success, something we see in real life without even realizing it.

After a few minutes of frolicking, which gets the teenagers (and the viewers) excited, Jules gets viciously attacked by a zombie right when she nears climax. The odd combination of copulation and death is characteristic of the dark rituals and is also featured be in underground snuff films circulated in elite circles. In short, Jules’ death was planned according to the occult elite’s way of functioning.

The Fool

Like in most horror movies involving teens, there is some kind of stoner in the pack providing comic relief. Always smoking a joint, the character named Marty Mikalski plays that role. Interestingly enough, the “fool” is also quite the conspiracy theorist.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

Inside the van, Marty explains how society is being heavily monitored through cameras and “chips inside children’s heads”. He states that one must sometimes “go off the grid” to escape the madness. Of course, he says all of these things while rolling a joint, subtlety telling the viewers: “Only paranoid potheads are against microchips and state monitoring”. To make things worse, Marty then shows a finished joint to Jules and tells her “I’ll make you see things my way”, meaning that being “aware” equals being on drugs.

As discussed in my articles on the movies Contagion and 2012, “conspiracy theorists” (or anyone with non-mainstream views) are always depicted as loons with little to no credibility. Marty in The Cabin in the Woods accomplishes the same function. While he says things that are believed by many people, we still almost hear a “coo-coo” sound effect in the background while he discusses microchips and such.

The fool, however, turns out to be right about a lot of things and tries to convince his friends about the conspiracy they are involved in. As it is often the case, nobody believes him until it is too late, because, after all, he is the fool.  We’ll later see how he’ll turn out to be an unlikely hero (while also destroying the world).

The Virgin

In most cultures that practiced ritual sacrifices, virgins were considered to be the “highest quality” offerings due to the fact that they were considered pure, clean, uncorrupted and innocent. They were untainted by man and the world and were therefore perceived as holy and the most spiritually potent. The character named Dana Polk was made to play that role in the ritual drama, although she isn’t actually a virgin (there’s apparently not many teenage virgins available nowadays)

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

Although she appears to be the weakest and the most vulnerable of the victims, the virgin ended up being an unlikely hero.

For the ritual to be complete, Dana needed to outlive all of her friends and her death was optional. The important thing is that she suffered as the puppet masters need to capture pain and punishment on camera, a fetish of the real-life dark forces behind the Illuminati. In fact, the ritual in The Cabin in the Woods follows a specific protocol that is similar to the actual rituals carried out by the occult elite. Here are some of them.

Rules of the Ritual

Most mega-rituals follow specific rules that are clearly spelled out in the movie. These rules are made to give the rituals more potency while allowing the powers that be to avoid the negative effects of bad karma (according to their weird interpretation of it).

1st Rule: Announcing What Will Happen Beforehand.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

On their way to the cabin, the teenagers meet an unsavory character dubbed “The Harbinger” that warns them in not-so-subtle ways that they will be killed. Despite the warnings, the friends resolutely carry on.

As seen in previous articles on this site, mega-rituals are often preceded by “clues” in mass media warning or preparing the victims (and the world) for what’s coming. If, after being warned, victims go on of their own free will, then the puppeteers are liberated from karmic responsibility.  During the movie, one technician says:

“They have to make the choice of their own free will. Otherwise, the system doesn’t work. Its like The Harbinger…this creepy old f*ck who is practically wearing a sign saying ‘You Will Die’. Why do we put him there? The System. They have to choose to ignore him. They have to choose what happens in the cellar. Yeah, we rig the system as much as we need to but, in the end, if they don’t transgress, they can’t be punished.”

This concept is often seen in real life where victims of ritual sacrifice place themselves in a specific situation, although they have been thoroughly manipulated to do so (see MK victims dying from an “overdose”).

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

In one of the cabin’s rooms is a painting depicting a lamb being torn to pieces by all kinds of vicious creatures. This is yet another way the victims are subtly “warned” of what is bound to happen. However, since the kids have no idea of what’s happening, they simply ignore it. This can be compared to the elite hiding in plain sight warnings and predictions about the NWO in public places (see the murals at the Denver International Airport).

2nd Rule: The Victims Must Seal Their Own Fate

Although every aspect of their environment is tightly controlled and manipulated by the puppet masters, the victims are still made to choose their fate by their own free will.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

By reading cryptic Latin phrases inside a book, the 5 friends summoned themselves the redneck zombies that will tirelessly want to kill them. By triggering the killers themselves, the puppeteers are freed from karmic responsibility.

Although the above concepts are extremely obscure, they are clearly defined and communicated in the movie. They are a reflection of the occult elite’s (aka the Illuminati’s) particular way of functioning, where nothing is obvious and everything is manipulated behind the scenes in order to obtain a specific result. Ancient blood sacrifices were accomplished out in the open with participants that knew what was happening (not that I’m idealizing those days) but today, it is about deceit and manipulation, with an emphasis placed on suffering and anguish, something that only those dealing in black arts would revel in. Upon discovering exactly what was happening, Marty (the stoner) says:

“A ritual sacrifice? Great. You tie someone to a stone, get a fancy dagger and a bunch of robes. It’s not that complicated.”

To which the virgin replies:

“Tt IS simple. They don’t just want to see us killed. They want to see us punished”.

Who Wins in the End?

The ending of the movie is very telling, yet very unsettling. In order for the ritual to be complete, Marty must die before the virgin. If this doesn’t happen, the “ancient evil gods” will rise and kill everyone on Earth. When asked to kill himself to save the world, Marty refuses – knowing very well he’ll be killed anyway by the evil gods.

Dana and Marty then light up a joint and wait for the gods to rise. Dana says:

“It’s time to give someone else a chance…Giant evil gods”.

Then a giant hand rises up from beneath the Earth, kills everyone and then reaches out to grab the movie viewers. And that’s how the movie ends…with an evil god grabbing the viewer.

"The Cabin in the Woods": A Movie Celebrating the Elite's Ritual Sacrifices

The big winner of the movie? An Evil god aka Satan himself.

So, in the end, the only winner of the movie is a “giant evil god” rising up straight from hell, one that could be equated to Satan in Abrahamic religions. Dana and Marty, the “heroes” of the story, therefore willingly allowed the evil god to rise up and to take over the Earth. The “heroes” brought about the worst ending possible, one of the movie’s original twists that kept the audience guessing. It nevertheless has an important symbolic meaning and tells a lot about those who are behind the movie. In retrospect, were the puppeteers the good guys or the bad guys? They were sadistic jerks carrying out an occult ritual but they were also trying to save the world from the wrath evil gods. Hmmm…

In Conclusion

The Cabin in the Woods is a hit with movie fans due to its wit and its study of the horror film genre. However, going past these obvious remarks, the story of the movie conceals another layer of interpretation: It reveals the Illuminati’s occult way of functioning in order to maintain power and to imprint the group mind with symbols using rituals and sacrifices. The “organization” in the movie uses an odd mixture of scientific knowledge with the “old world” occult rituals to carry out its plans. While this story is pure fiction, it also reveals (in a strange way) how the occult elite truly functions.

That being said, can we equate the clueless teens in the movie to the clueless masses? Can we equate the cabin in the woods to today’s highly monitored and controlled society? Are our perceptions being purposely modified through mind control, mass media and meds to make us fall into traps? Are we being purposely dumbed-down like these kids in order for us to do the elite’s bidding by our own free will? Is the movie The Cabin in the Woods an equivalent to the Harbinger in the movie, who communicates a grave warning to people that are too clueless to understand any of it? As Marty the stoner says: “You are not seeing what you don’t want to see”.

The big lie contained in this movie concerns the very purpose of the rituals. In the film it's stated that the rituals are conducted in order to keep the dark forces below, in a state of "slumber". In real life the rituals are done for the exact opposite reason, in order to *muster* the dark forces to take over the world. Sigourney Weaver's character is especially diabolical in that she mixes truth with fiction by propounding the notion that the secret organization wants to keep the "ancient ones" subdued when the fact is that that is the very opposite of what they want. The occult elite wishes to unleash the dark forces upon the earth, as prophesied in the book of Revelation. What is never mentioned in the movie, of course, is the very real probability that God will win, thus, defeating the dark power and its elite minions. In fact, God and Christ are never even mentioned in the film, except in vain.

Lion of Omega

In addition, with regard to Drew Goddard (the writer and director), all you need to do is look into his eyes to see that he himself is likely a willing participant in this conspiracy. His arrogance is apparent. Anyone who would craft a movie like this, especially considering the knowledge of specific occult practices as well as the last scene before credits role (i.e. negative ending) must have some sort of allegiance to the Enemy. I say likely, not certain….though I personally believe that mere coincidence is a rare thing indeed, especially in today's world. It's also mentioned in the film that the organization is very old. This being the case and since Mr. Goddard has such acute awareness of these things, why isn't he a vocal critic of global injustice? Instead he chooses to be an "entertainer" by trade reaping profits for making motion pictures. These types of films are the beginning of the "coming out" process for the "Illuminati" to the masses, and Mr. Goddard is a witting member….in all likelihood.


I think The Archetypical Fool and the Virgin are the true heroes of this story. I think the so-called triumph of the Giant Evil God is the fear of the power elite not our reality. Remember from the perspective of the puppet masters, to them losing is like bringing hell on earth. The most blatant lie they have to convey to the rest of us, to ensure our continued obedience is that their concerns are our concerns, their values are our values, their successes are our successes, that one day there is a place at the table beside them, that we all have shared interests in the direction of the world, when in fact they do not believe any of this foolishness amongst themselves. So the ending is the most blatant lie to the audience: "If you don't sacrifice yourself on the alter of our whims you doom the earth." These so-called world masters vilify the virgin not because he or she is pure but because he or she resists mindlessly following the sexual energy of the herd or the selfish pressure of potential 'lovers" to define his or her sexuality: preferring to define his or her emotional maturation on… Read more »

sorin h

great post. I read them all. yours is the most true. bravo.


Interesting analysis, VC! There is however another point to be made about this movie. What if some of the horror movies we see today (like the "Saw" series) actually contain REAL situations in which people die FOR REAL, and then we watch it for "entertainment" (I actually find it disgusting to watch this kind of movies myself, but I've been in a situation where I let my friends decide what movie to watch, and they chose one of the saw movies). The Cabin in the Woods movie actually "promotes" this concept, i.e. to document real murders. As far as I understand it is not said WHY this is done in the movie, but what if that kind of documentation is done for real, and then used in Hollywood productions as "fiction"?

This is something I've been considering lately. Unfortunately I have no good idea as to how this could be investigated…


Do you actually think that these are real situations? Omg


I think its also very interestig to note that in the movie it became clear that the "rituals" in other parts of the world were failing. Specifically, the Japanese schoolgirls figured out how to defeat the banshee-like-ghost by chanting in unison. Couldn't that be an indication that people are beginging waking up and fight back against these occultist rituals? However and unfortunately, the final message of the film remains that we the "sheep" or uninitiated (whatever you want to call the masses) still don't know and can't know what is best for ourselves…and if left to our own devices ungoverned, collapse would inevitably ensue. Great article… This site is by far the best and most informative of its kind. Thanks VC.


I like your comment, however many are aware of what is the best for them. The only trouble is they lack the strength of character to achieve it. We go for the easy option as we are too lazy/weak to take the difficult route.

The "Root of David"

I have no desire to watch this film because I already understand the mindset of the enemy (the Dark occultists who are attempting to accomplish Satan's goal on earth).

What these filmmakers and the Dark masters they work for fail to implement into the movie is a real protagonist. They fail to acknowledge the forces of Light. I suppose by omitting this essential element is to strategically weaken the Light's power within the collective psyche of humanity. However, although they seek to overrule the Law of Karma, they cannot. They will not defeat the prophecy that states in clear terms that the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the messiah, will defeat their conspiracy with the aid of Heaven's host, and God the Father, himself.

The messiah, which is ignored by all these movies, will win.

Heathen Voice

"If after being warned, victims go on by their own free will, then the puppeteers are liberated from karmic responsibility." —VC Expanding on this idea of liberating themselves from karmic responsibility, we might also wonder if they have to tell us (the viewers) how to resist their occult power. Because they did indeed do that, although It was nearly as subtle as possible. While we watch the ritual unfolding in America, we see updates from the organization's other operations. We're simply told that they failed, with little details beyond some pics on the monitors. Except for the Japanese operation. We're showed the final moments of its failure, at roughly 0:54:40 in the movie. The demon that's supposed to be killing off a bunch of nine year olds is immobilized, surround by a bunch of young girls holding hands. Their singing transforms the demon into a harmless "happy frog." What's the meaning behind their success in vanquishing the demon? About a half a minute after the finish of the scene of the vanquishing, we get the key from one of the technicians: "While these morons are singing 'What a friend we have in Shinto,' we are bringing the pain." Shinto ("Way… Read more »


that is true but given the fact that Americans are so many cultures in one country and how we as Americans find root. We as human beings divide ourselves so much it's ridiculous actually; we divide ourselves by sex,age,,sexual orientation and culture – we are just too divided.


VC could do a whole series of articles on Joss Whedon and the NWO. Buffy and Angel were both littered with references, and of particular interest to me was the theme of being drafted into a powerful organization that you don't really want to be a part of. Buffy was " Chosen ", Giles was a third generation Watcher, Wesley was at least a second gen Watcher and all of them complained about having had no choice in the matter. I think this is telling given that Whedon himself is a third generation Hollywood writer. As to Marty being The Fool and the equating of being " aware " with being crazy, I think it's worth mentioning the esoteric meaning of The Fool in Tarot. That card is numbered zero because it's the one without a set place in the Major Arcana, like the court jester. The jester is the only one allowed to ridicule the king, and yet he is still beneath society at large. This mimics Carnival and Mardi Gras reversal ceremony. In Tarot The Fool is on a journey and in the end becomes The Wise Fool, seeing and knowing, but apart. I think chalking this character… Read more »


The evil Gods are actually meant to represent us the audience who go these kind of movies to see these hapless pawns (the characters) get massacred


Love your site. We aren't really on the same side, but much respect. I'm wondering if you missed the symbolism used in the Lionsgate intro? The metropolis, the gears, the keyhole? Seems a shame to be so detailed in your analysis and miss talking about the harbringer they attached to the start of the movie? A real life warning hidden in symbolism before the warning enacted in the movie itself?
I know these things often have too many layers to discuss really, but it seems too poetic to just be left out.


I watched this yesterday and was extremely disturbed. I'm not a sensitive viewer per se, so that says a lot. I didn't feel entertained, I could feel the ugliness of it all. The part of the movie with the various compartments and elevator going into various compartments then the violence after that was deeply disturbing and frightening. That's not even 'fear' entertainment, it was just ugly and evil and violent and abrupt.


We're generally looking at the occult, demonic sexual perversions characterizing pop culture in all its forms these days, but there is a more fundamental question: the legitimacy and origins of the sexual revolution itself. Many who champion the sexual revolution as a good thing, and bizarrely so in the case young women, would be surprised to find out the rhetoric of sexual freedom was used to engineer a system of covert political and social control. For all the proof in the world that this is so, I'd recommend E. Michael Jones's "Libido Dominandi, Sexual Liberation and Control." This is a scholarly work of nearly 700 pages, but worth the effort to read and contemplate as we see all our freedoms, save sexual license and control by animal appetite, criminalized, pathologized, and abrogated, as the true nature of our totalitarian government becomes manifest.

Evan Everhart

It is also poignant and pertinent that the two primary characters who survive to the end and bring about the end of the world are named “Marty” (dedicated to, or of Mars, a pseudonym in ancient occultic theology of Osirus/Assurus/Asshur/Asir/Asir Luhi, Enki (Lord of the Deep/Abyss), Apolo (also lord of the Abyss after and to whom Abydos was named/dedicated, Melqart/Hercules/Marduk, and his mate Isis; Ishtar/Aestre/Easter, As/htaroth, Artemis/Diana/Dana & etc., So Isis (the veiled virgin) and Osiris the king who was fooled and killed and who is the lord of the underworld bring about the apocalypse and bring forth a spirit of evil and destruction from the underworld; sounds about right to me.

No crafts

Joss Whedon filmed “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” to declare to the world that he is selling himself out to get power and money. The character “Dr. Horrible” is Joss Whedon himself. And both the “Captain Hammer” and the “Dr. Horrible” are wearing the same Mason Gloves in the mini-series. Joss Whedon started getting promoted by “them”, right after he made the decision to sell out his soul and declared his decision to the world with the 2008 miniseries called “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”.


“Is the movie The Cabin in the Woods an equivalent to the Harbringer in the movie, who communicates a grave warning to people that are too clueless to understand any of it? ” I’m going to say,Yes! Yes it is.


The hypercube symbolism is everywhere.


if they don’t transgress, they can’t be punished.” The scariest thing I've heard in a while. Brings to mind the Christian concept of temptation and sin eg Satan in the garden of Eden with Adam and Eve


So because the stoner foiled the secret organization's plan, the evil gods destroyed the world. If the stoner had died as planned, the world would have been spared.

Is this the elite trying to portray themselves as the good guys, doing what has to be done in order to stave off destruction of the world? Seems like it to me. (Of course they are no such thing.)

Louis Solano

Thats what it sounds like to me. The elite are trying to convey that all they’re doing is for the ” greater good”. This is of course is bullshit. These people have no right whatsoever to dictate whats right for the masses.


its great to see us all aware , but if we want to see the world become a better place , we have to make an effort to change it . so far , i haven t seen anyone propose that we start organising ourselves . why aren t we getting together ? why dont we take the necessary steps required to fight these dark forces . have we all been sub consciously programmed to act aware , but defeated .

including myself , we know whats going on out there . we dont have to keep sitting in front of our computers anymore . these evil beings are going to unleash unbelievable misery on us all if we dont do something a simple as push back .

Janine Mota

Watched this movie. Didnt like it. And certainly didn't enjoy the ending. It was quite blatant in it message. THe ending sucked….the nonchalant way the final two waited for the inevitable coming of the evil one portrayed a feeling of hopelessness. Lately, alot of movies being made do not have a happy ending or rather the good guys do not win. Ive noticed that of late. Awful movie!


This movie was very interesting. With the recent fed court decision that wireless surveillance cameras can be used on private property without warning, we have this movie scenario being rather feasible. We will have voyeurs watching us in our homes and from the skies with drones. They can send in the swat teams and watch us die horror movie style.
