I read and reviewed the script for Cabin in the Woods so more than anyone, I’m qualified to tell you that the movie’s first ever trailer pretty much spoils the entire film. So if you’re really excited to see this Joss Whedon co-scripted movie, then maybe you want to avoid it entirely.
Except it’s actually a pretty good trailer, if you don’t know they’re ruining the movie by giving away all the surprises. All you should really know about Cabin is this: four teens head out of town to spend the weekend at a cabin in the woods. There they find themselves attacked on all sides but what seems like a series of unending, murderous, horror movie clichés. The truth about what’s happening to them though, is far more horrifying.
Here’s that spoilery trailer…
Yep, it’s not just a horror movie, it’s a sci-fi horror movie. Even revealing that much, as the trailer does, is kind of in spoiler territory. Now, try to forget everything you know about this movie.
