In this film image released by Lionsgate, from left, Fran Kranz, Chris Hemsworth and Anna Hutchison are shown in a scene from "The Cabin in the Woods."

MovieStyle is stuffed to the gills this week, as eight new movies open in Arkansas theaters. The Cabin in the Woods may be the one with the broadest appeal, and our correspondent Piers Marchant finds it an agreeable exercise in post-modern horror dynamics, probably the freshest self-aware scary movie since the Scream series petered out. And Dan Lybarger checks in with reviews of the Farrelly brothers’ long-rumored The Three Stooges, which he sees as a poor substitution for the original; Lockout, a space opera that plays like a lame remake of John Carpenters’ Escape from New York; and the terrific low-budget action film The Raid: Redemption.

MovieStyle editor Philip Martin, meanwhile, contributes reviews of the Nicolas Cage urban noir Seeking Justice and Josh Marston’s remarkably subtle drama about an Albanian feud, The Forgiveness of Blood. Also making it into town this week is the Polish World War II-era In Darkness, which was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Oscar and the drug comedy Budz House, which was not.
