New clip from Cabin in the Woods shows the funny side of horror

CABIN IN THE WOODS is coming to theaters in just a couple of weeks and we have a new clip available.

From day one, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard have proclaimed CABIN IN THE WOODS as a combination of multiple genres. Now we can definitely see the film has a funny bone as well.

Whedon really seems to have hit the nail on the head with this one. It feels like the closest thing we have gotten to THE EVIL DEAD in quite some time. I am hoping that the promise of twists and unexpected turns will live up to the hype. A friend of mine saw an advanced screening and said it absolutely does.

Synopsis: "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."

CABIN IN THE WOODS opens April 13th (Friday the 13th!).

Extra Tidbit: They didn't really get too creative with the title, did they? It would be along the lines of PROMETHEUS being renamed SPACESHIP ON A PLANET.

The simplicity of the name is the whole point: they're playing with the obvious trope of the genre... the set up of a bunch of kids going to a cabin in the woods. I think it's a clever, very meta approach to the title that both says 'we're honouring the genre, but we're subverting it at the same time'.
