Since it’s co-written by Buffy and Firefly creator Joss Whedon it should come as no surprise that Cabin in the Woods is not a normal, generic horror movie. Sure the plot involves a group of kids going out to stay in the woods, a generic horror setup if there ever was one, but it’s all a big misdirection to distract from the secret of what’s really going on.
That probably should be a spoiler, but the movie’s trailers and especially this new trailer, seem to think you should know that something sci-fi lies beneath all that horror veneer. Who am I to argue? Watch the new Cabin in the Woods trailer and see if you can figure out what’s going on.
Cabin has its debut at the SXSW film festival this week, so expect to start hearing a lot more about it very soon. It hits theaters for general consumption on April 13 of this year.
