Next best £9.99 @ Sainsburys Entertainment

Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen.

If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favourites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes The Cabin In The Woods, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.

Produced by Whedon and directed by Goddard from a script by both, the film stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford.

Voted hot to counteract those who vote cold just coz they don't like the film...

(I liked it but think it's probably a Marmite film)
Excellent find. Although not everyone will like this film
i enjoyed it
Very enjoyable, watchable film
Id watch it just for chris hemsworth if i could stomach horror films like these

(Yeah that would be just as pathetic a reason as yours)
Voted cold because if it was free it would still be too expensive. Singularly the worst movie I have seen in years.

But, in terms of the product and the price it is at, this is a good deal yes? This isn't a product review site, it's about if something is a good price when compared to other retailers.

I take it you didn't see Abraham Lincoln vampire hunter then??!!
Heat. Great price for a superb film that seems to have been lost on a few people...

The only thing I lost was nearly two hours of my life watching this sh1te.

IMO only - a really boring film. But im a fan of horror films in general and expected a better homage than this. Hard to sit through to the end. But good price for a blu-ray for those that like it so voted the deal hot.
Great price, great movie!
My brother hated it, I thought it was good. Worth a watch at this price.

It's not a horror film (_;) I managed to watch it and I can't stomach Chris Hemsworth
Great comedy. Thanks OP!
Hardly a hot deal
Average price for a blu ray

No it's not, and don't tell others how they should vote. So if retailers were selling a turd for a quid, and someone starting charging 50p, then according to you it makes it a hot deal.

The product, i.e the movie, is poor in my view and not worth £7.99, so if you don't mind I consider the deal not hot. (Haven't voted cold though.)

Also accidentally liked your comment when the screen size changed as I went to reply. Doh!
Brilliant thrill ride well worth the money, voted hot.

Yes, thats how this site is supposed to work. And obviously some people need to be told how this site works. Some people might actually want to buy turds. This appears to be a cheapest around for a relatively new release so it is a hot deal. You should only vote cold if there is a cheaper option

Afraid you're wrong.

Deals should be voted hot or cold based on it's price relative to other stores offering the same or similar product.

It really has nothing to do with whether you 'like' or 'dislike' the product on a personal level. You need to examIne the facts (ie. the price), rather than factoring in your subjective opinion (that people might agree or disagree with) into how you vote.

For example, I detest Marmite. Someone posts a deal for a jar of Marmite at £1. Other stores are offering it for £2. So that's a 'hot deal' regardless of the fact I hate Marmite.

Value and worth are relative concepts. People tend to vote based on these, rather than voting on comparative price.

However, this site actively encourages votes based on value, worth and price. So I'm afraid, in this situation, you're incorrect.

Even though I completely agree with you.

It's a fantastic price for a fairly recently-released highly critically acclaimed Blu ray. You're supposed to vote on whether the price is good compared to other sites, to help other people find the product cheapest - not to use the voting system to inflict your personal opinions on people.

Just because people tend to misuse the voting system doesn't make them right, the very concept of this site is helping people find products that they want for the cheapest, not to review or pass judgement on them. You agree with the idea, you should support it and not discourage people from reminding others what the voting system is for.

To be honest, I don't think I am.
good deal for one of the most over-rated films in years. took an idea that would have made an ok twilight zone episode and blugeoned it to death in a clumsy and heavy-handed way. Could never sit through it again

To be honest, I don't think I am.



I don't agree with it myself, but this topic has been brought up many times before and nowhere in the forum guidelines does it say what constitutes a 'fair vote'. It's all down to personal opinion.

However, if you can find the rule that says otherwise I'll happily accept it.

That is your opinion on what the voting system is for. That does not make it correct.

To quote HUKD's help page:

"The HUKD temperature gauge (the little red and blue arrow next to each deal) is used by members to show their opinion on the deals, competitions, vouchers and freebies on HUKD."
Brilliant film, very original, great price
Quite enjoyed the film, but not one I would watch numerous times.

Most of the fun of it is the surprise. Definitely one you want to know as little as possible about before watching .....

Heat for the price.
Is anyone really going to vote hot on something they dislike simply because you can't find it cheaper? The voting system is flawed when it comes to the likes of movies and music as a person's personal tastes come into it much more.

I personally liked this movie. I know people who disliked it because they went in expecting a regular horror film.

I take it you didn't see Abraham Lincoln vampire hunter then??!!



no he probably did...but liked it

its a great price for a great film, i picked it up from amazon last week for £10 though, so this is excellent for a BRAND NEW BLU RAY, voted hot

Well spotted! Just picked this up as a gift, love Whedon.
okay, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but those that didn't like it clearly don't have the brain capacity to understand what it was.

Of course it's opinion, you're still entitled to vote cold on a deal and if it wasn't opinion you might as well automate the system - but it's been clarified repeatedly by mods that you shouldn't vote cold just because you don't like a product.

Which makes perfect sense, since you might not like a 50p jar of Marmite, but somebody else certainly would!

And somebody else may not have tried it, and you're highly recommending it to them, so they go out and buy it and find it to be horrible. That's pretty poor value for them.

Besides, I've never seen a mod make that clarification. Maybe they have forum guidelines that they are not revealing to the general public. Can't imagine why this would be the case.

Or, more likely, mods also have their own opinions on how this site should work.

Every time this film is posted it causes a debate X)I hated the film … Every time this film is posted it causes a debate X)I hated the film personally and wouldn't buy if it was £1 but as this is the best price available for those that either would like to own or watch it it's a deal.Didn't vote either way, just read the predicted amusing opinions this film provokes.



Agreed. (but not on the film!).

This isn't a product/service review site so this shouldn't effect the voting. But of course you can give YOUR OPINION about how bad something is. Or alternately find a thread where you like the product/service.

Only time I vote cold is a) when it can be had for cheaper or b) the retailer or service provider are a nightmare

Deals a deal.
