From 'The Cabin in the Woods' to 'Glee,' the week's most brutal reviews are in.

The reviews for Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's new horror flick "The Cabin in the Woods" have been mostly positive. However there was one critic who wasn't so impressed with Whedon's "nightmare spoof," claiming that it's not as scary as the movies it seems to copy.

"A testament to the wonders of writing under the guidance of crystal meth, this nightmare spoof of everything from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' to the 'Scream' franchise totally defies logic, and pretty much eludes description," wrote Rex Reed of The New York Observer.

Meanwhile, the return of Fox's "Glee" made teenage girls squeal with delight -- and HitFix's Ryan McGee cry out in frustration. As for ABC's "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23"? Well, even James Van Der Beek (playing The Beek himself!) couldn't save this new comedy from The Washington Post's wrath.

This week, critics from Empire to The New York Times and HitFix all had something nasty to say about the latest movies, music and TV shows.

Krysten Ritter's character in ABC's new comedy "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23" is supposed to be funny, but The Washington Post doesn't get the joke.

It seems to come from some tedious, misguidedly post-feminist place of comedic darkness, where the only kind of funny is the selfish kind, and one woman mistreats another with the specific goal of "improving" her by breaking her into tiny pieces.
