    "In The Cabin in the Woods (2011), the movie's opening was a deliberate attempt by filmmakers Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon to confuse the audience and make them think they walked in to see the wrong movie."

    The first time the blood ritual is done with Julie, the blood pours down the carving and everything is still. When Marty "dies" the blood pours down and everything starts to rumble, [this is] due to the demons downstairs being angry. Marty didn't actually die, and that's the wrong blood.
