A new trailer for the horror film The Cabin in the Woods has gone online. Directed by Drew Goddard and written by Goddard and Joss Whedon, the film takes the horror genre and turns it on its head as five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods where bad things start happening. The logline is simple, but the buzz on this film is incredibly positive. I’ve been told that the movie’s twists and turns are best left as surprises, so I’m pretty in the dark about what exactly happens in this cabin in the woods. Needless to say, I’m incredibly excited to go into the film relatively cold. This trailer is much more along the lines of your typical horror film that the first trailer, but I don’t necessarily think that’s a bad thing. The big sell for movie fans is the involvement of Whedon and Goddard, but this trailer should appeal to the average moviegoer who’s up for two hours of good ol’ fashioned horror fun.
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchinson, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Richard Jenkins. The film opens on April 13th, but our own Matt Goldberg will have a review from the film’s premiere at SXSW this Friday.
