New Teaser Poster for THE CABIN IN THE WOODS

     December 1, 2011


In April, Drew Goddard‘s The Cabin in the Woods finally found distribution.  The movie was set to be released by MGM, but then the studio had a financial meltdown and the horror film (co-written by Joss Whedon) became trapped in limbo.  Nothing is known about the film other than the vague synopsis, which claims the horror flick will turn the Cabin-in-the-Woods sub-genre inside-out.  Judging by this new teaser poster, that description may be literal.  It’s an eye-catching image, but I prefer the taglines from the 2009 series of teaser posters.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.  The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchinson, Fran Kanz, Jesse Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Richard JenkinsThe Cabin in the Woods opens April 13, 2012. [Update: We've been sent the high resolution version of the poster, which is now included after the jump.]


Here’s the official synopsis for The Cabin in the Woods (also via AICN):

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.

Produced by Whedon and directed by Goddard from a script by both, the film stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford.

      It’s going to be really funny when you’re wrong. Also, shut up.

    I’m hoping to be impressed. Unfortunately, horror that turns the genre inside out has become the standard now. Scream did it for slashers. Shaun of the Dead/Zombieland did it for zombies. Scary Movie did it for people with really bad taste. And really, the tv shows Community and Psych both had episodes that already did it for the cabin-in-the-woods sub-genre. So Joss Whedon needs a really big ace up his sleeve to not just be a by-the-numbers intelligent horror movie.

    naturally like your web site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I’ll certainly come back again.
