New Cabin in the Woods trailer
The Cabin in the Woods is the Drew Goddard directed film which he co-wrote with Joss Whedon, and already I can hear gasps of excitement from fans out there as the pairing does sound interesting. Add to that some names like Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Chris Hemsworth and a stock horror story and we have the new film.
Except there's more to it than that, the first reveals were of a group of young people trapped in a cabin against an evil...blah blah, and while the first trailer played on that it revealed something more in the latter half. This new trailer doesn't wait.
The new trailer for The Cabin in the Woods gets straight into the action showing us the twist in the old horror story from the beginning, and while it is a shorter trailer and is fast cut, it does show us some new shots and more of the real meat of the film.
It is setting up an intriguing idea, that the cabin is there as a proving ground for something else with the people inside it as either the test subjects or the challenge for the real test subjects, something we're yet to find out.
Here's the official blurb rather than me surmising what I think about the film:
Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.
You might also remember that the first trailer we saw delivered a supplementary comment on the blurb that promised a lot:
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.
The film is due out on the 13th of April - is that a Friday? Yes, it certainly is - across Europe and America and does look like it's going to be a horror film worth watching, something that's going to deliver a lot more than the stock horror films we're often treated to.
