When The Cabin in the Woods is a Horror Movie

I just peed my pants a little watching this, but I hate scary movies. I’ll bet “The Cabin in the Woods” is no where near as scary as The Dream Catcher! Stephen King wrote it, need I say more? Watch the Dream Catcher trailer below!


When The Cabin in the Woods is a Horror Movie

What happens when the weekend cabin goes bad? This trailer for The Cabin in the Woods suggests it might not unfold with the predictable path of your typical horror movie. Indeed, the film was written and produced by Joss Whedon of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fame and directed by Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard, and reports from those who’ve seen the script were that it was quite good — genre, yes, but clever within the form.

The film was shot in and around Vancouver over three months in spring 2009, then languished as its studio, MGM, suffered major financial problems. Release was delayed so it could be converted to 3D (remember that?) and now has been scheduled for April 13, 2012. Will it be as instantly awesome as Frozen, the best stuck-on-a-chairlift-and-hounded-by-wolves movie ever made? Whedon hasn’t had a major hit since Buffy, but with creepy Matrix-style effects, a strange control room, and lines like, “The lambs have passed through the gate. They are come to the killing floor,” my money’s on Cabin.
