'Cabin in the Woods' Tops Reaper Awards

21 Oct, 2013 By: John Latchem

Lionsgate’s horror-movie deconstruction The Cabin in the Woods has emerged from the 2013 Reaper Awards competition with the top honors.

A deft blend of horror and comedy, the film — directed by Drew Goddard, produced by Joss Whedon and co-written by both of them — turned horror-movie clichés on their head and in doing so captured not only the award for Choice Theatrical Cut, but also Title of the Year.

The Cabin in the Woods won a total of three awards, also taking Best Kill for a scene in which a variety of horror creatures escape and attack their captors.

The Reaper Awards, presented by Home Media Magazine and DreadCentral.com, honored the top horror and thriller titles released between
Aug. 1, 2012, and July 31, 2013. Studios submitted contenders for consideration by a panel of judges in conjunction with a consumer vote.

Top TV collection went to 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s American Horror Story, while Best Title From the Vault went to Shout! Factory’s The Fog: Collector’s Edition.
