While at the movies this past weekend I saw a trailer for The Cabin In the Woods, which stars Thor’s very own Chis Hemsworth. Directed by Drew Goddard and written by Goddard and Joss Whedon, the film chronicles the bloody misfortunes of a group of friends while vacationing in the remote wilderness (mistake one for those guys). Based on what I’ve seen so far, it looks like Whedon and Goddard have put a new and fresh spin on the “friends-being-terrorized-and-slaughtered-in-the-woods-by-psycho-killers-or-hillbillies” story line that has been one of the standard horror movies plots FOR AGES. Take a look at the trailer and judge for yourself. I know I’m excited.
Expected release date is April 13, 2012 (and yes that’s a Friday, but were you really surprised?)
