The lucky bastards at SXSW in Austin will be treated to Drew Goddard’s much buzzed-about horror film The Cabin in the Woods this evening, and while the rest of us will have to seethe with jealousy from afar, a couple new images from the pic have been released to tide us over. Written by Goddard and Joss Whedon, the film tells the story of five friends who go to a remote cabin in the woods where bad things happen. Though the logline is simple, it’s evident from the trailer that this isn’t exactly the most straightforward of horror films. I’ve been told that the movie is excellent, with enough twists and turns to make your head spin. Goddard and Whedon apparently tackle the horror genre head-on, and I can’t wait to finally be privy to the results. For now, these very creepy images will have to do. Be sure to check back on Collider late tonight or tomorrow to read our own Matt Goldberg’s review of the film from the festival.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchinson, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Richard Jenkins. The Cabin in the Woods opens on April 13th.
