    Yes, absolutely right. Calling the events in Cabin in the Woods misogynist *entirely* misses the point. The film is calling attention to these events which are wrong, cruel, misogynist etc and showing that that they are all of these things. Showing misogyny is not the same as approving it. The ending of the film shows that the film-makers believe that the earth and humanity does not deserve to survive, if the price of its survival is arbitrary torture, cruelty and death.

    1. Exactly, I meant to mention the ending in my post but forgot. It pretty much says that a world where condemns anyone who would think that that sort of thing is a-okay.
