Perhaps if he had made it after his smash film adaptation of The Avengers, Joss Whedon wouldn't have had such a hard time releasing The Cabin in the Woods, his studio-delayed horror film sendup with Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard. A modest performer at the box office, but an instant cult classic, the movie offers a dry, meta-commentary on itself as it toys with the most familiar horror film conventions during the buildup to a completely unexpected, shockingly funny climax. The UWM Union Theatre screens the flick for free, along with multiple showings of The Hunger Games and Snow White and the Huntsman, as part of its welcome-back weekend schedule. (Also 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2)
