Director Drew Goddard and co-writer Joss Whedon‘s The Cabin in the Woods is a masterful take down of the supernatural horror genre, and that about all I can say since some people believe the “twist” is half of the film’s appeal. I would argue that it’s the hook, and since it’s revealed in the first scene of the movie, it’s not much of a spoiler. Nevertheless, I won’t reveal it here, and if you’re curious about it and how it functions in the film, you can click here to read my review.
The first clip has gone online and doesn’t reveal “the spoiler”, so I’d say the coast is clear. It also shows how Fran Kranz is the movie’s scene stealer. Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchinson, Jesse Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Richard Jenkins. The Cabin in the Woods opens April 13th.
