In celebration of this, the most ghoulishly delightful holiday of the year, we're sharing an insanely ambitious video essay that attempts to find and explain every single horror film reference in the 2012 satirical meta-horror masterpiece, The Cabin in the Woods. Considering that the film is very much about all of the horror films that preceded it -- it's both an homage to and criticism of the entire horror genre, if that makes sense -- trying to pinpoint each of the hundreds of subtle and not-so-subtle references in The Cabin in the Woods is an undertaking worthy of applause.
For those of you who have seen the film, you're definitely in for a treat. If you haven't, stop what you're doing and watch it immediately so that you can come back and partake in this wonderful video essay. Obviously, there are some spoilers ahead.
So there you have it, (almost) every horror reference in The Cabin in the Woods. Mad respect to Cecil at GoodBadFlicks for putting this together.
