Collaborative duo Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon roll out with The Cabin in the Woods, a psychotic and ingenious satirical spin on the sub-genre (and pretty much all other associated umbrella-terms) that has truly earned its title. Initially, Goddard’s and Whedon’s mad-scientist-dissection project was shelved for three years after its completion due to MGM going bankrupt, fortunately Lionsgate picked up the distribution rights. Better late than never! Read the short and unrevealing synopsis as follows:
“Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen.
If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.
Produced by Whedon and directed by Goddard from a script by both. The film stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchinson, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford.”
