Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods Looks Like Every Horror Movie (You’re Gonna Love It)

This article originally appeared on

Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods Looks Like Every Horror Movie (You’re Gonna Love It)

by Angela Watercutter

The new trailer for the Joss Whedon-produced film The Cabin in the Woods comes stamped with the very evocative message “You think you know the story….” It’s a tease of the best kind because the fact that the first trailer looks like every horror film ever made is what makes it look so freaking awesome.

The movie’s premise is simple: A group of friends go to a very remote cabin in the woods for a weekend of fun. The group (lead by a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth) gets a little lost, but then the semi-friendly owner of a dilapidated country store helps them find their way to their decidedly freaky-looking shack.

Then, get this, the store owner says, “The lambs have passed through the gate. They’re come to the killing floor.” Things proceed to go wrong — very, very wrong (and very weird). Marilyn Manson’s “I Put a Spell on You” (from the Lost Highway soundtrack, obviously) is playing in the background. It’s so on-the-nose it’s really hard not to feel like you’re watching it at a junior-high sleepover.

But this is a film co-written by Whedon with Cloverfield/Lost/Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer Drew Goddard, who also directed the movie. All the predictability feels very intentional, and it’s hard not to imagine that when things get even worse for your pretty young things that there will be great horror moments of the highest order (our guess is that the hot doctor from Grey’s Anatomy — Jesse Williams — eats it first). Also, there are some unexplained shots of a mission-control-type place — the kind of high-tech headquarters that typically aren’t seen in your run-of-the-mill horror flick.

There will also be plenty of tongue-in-cheek lines like, “We have to stay together,” and lots of winks to the audience. We’re counting on the stoner friend to be the narrator who points out all things intentionally over-the-top.

And since it’s a Whedon-and-Goddard production, we’re also expecting the third act to be more surprising than even this twisted teaser lets on. As the trailer notes, you might think you know the story, but “think again.”

The Cabin in the Woods hits theaters April 13, 2012.
