Call it, new and improved horror, “The Cabin In The Woods“.
When people think of this new film, their minds might turn to the horror genre, but “The Cabin in the Woods” offers humor as well, said director and co-writer Drew Goddard and female lead actress Kristen Connolly.
In a nutshell, the film mostly revolves around five friends who drive to a distant relative’s cabin in order to spend a relaxing weekend away from their college campus. Unfortunately the group’s goals are not at all met and a series of shocking and unbelievable things happen, to everyone.
“Cabin” is the brainchild of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” writer Joss Whedon and “Cloverfield” writer Goddard.
“We played with horror a lot in ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ and we just wanted to go back there,” said Goddard, who was also a writer for “Buffy,” in an interview with The Lantern. “So we talked about the subgenres (of horror movies), and we just both loved the subgenre of cabin movies.”
Goddard loves horror and he plans on continuing.
“I have always wanted to make a cabin movie and have fun with the types of movies that I loved when I was young,” Goddard said.
Goddard said the humor in “Cabin” was natural occurrence between himself and Whedon.
“I don’t know if it was a conscious thing,” Goddard said. “That is just how Josh and I are.”
“The Cabin in the Woods” opens everywhere Friday, April 13.
