A delightfully insane trailer for The Cabin In The Woods

Dec. 5, 2011by:

The trailer for THE CABIN IN THE WOODS sets you up beautifully, lulling you into thinking you're seeing just another slasher film. Let's run down the list, shall we?

Kids on vacation travelling to a cabin in the woods? Check.

No cell phone coverage? Check.

Creepy redneck dude? Check.

Nothing planned but drinking and sex? Check.

A high tech force field keeping them hostage? Chec-wait, what?

It's one helluva trailer, and you have to admire that they know just what kind of film lampooning but let's hope the setup doesn't take too long, since it seems like all the fun stuff happens later on. THE CABIN IN THE WOODS hits April comes from producer Joss Wheadon and writer/director Drew Goddard (CLOVERFIELD).

Yeah, it's a satire of these types of movies though not of the laugh-out-loud variety, it's just that the trailer is only giving small hints of it without really revealing anything (the bird hitting the "wall," the shots of TV monitors). I really hope they don't give away anything before people get a chance to see it as it really is a unique take on the material.

The problem with these movies, Cabin in the Woods included, is that the "protagonists" are extremely unlikable. Rather than pulling us into the horror by making us sympathize with the protagonists, they insist on giving us these shallow idiots who are more relatable dead than alive - and thereby canceling out the horror aspect.

I sympathize with your point of view but you should give them a chance. Even when his project fails, Whedon usually cares about his characters. If we get a Goddard plot mixed with Whedon characters. the movie should be really good!

Can you honestly make that claim based upon a trailer? Seems hasty and douchey to me.

That 2-minute trailer was better than 90% of the horror films in the last decade. Can't wait to see this!!

Been waiting for this for ages. Looks pretty close to how I envisioned it while reading the script. Just wish they woulda released it at a more appropriate time. I have a bad feeling this isn't going to do well in its Easter slot despite being quite an interesting story.

I didn't really read the write up until after I watched the trailer. Glad I didn't. Looks cool that there is a bit of a different sci-fi feel to it and still looks like a good "kids in the cabin, everyone murdered except for 2 people" movie. I will probably check it out!
