Slayage calls for papers on The Cabin in the Woods. A special issue of Slayage will focus on "Critical Reflections on The Cabin in the Woods". Proposals are due by June 7.

There'd better be one that's a deconstruction of academic papers.
One True: :)

I've written a variety of these sorts of things before, but I'm at a loss as to what I could write about CABIN. Honestly, I enjoyed it a great deal, but I just don't see the intellectual depth that a lot of people ascribe to it.

The only thing I could think of it as analyze it as a post-Bultmann-esque attempt at re-mythologizing the horror film after a hypothetical demythologization which I'm not sure ever occurred in the first place.
