(Published in Movie Magic Cornwall March/April 2012)
This blood-chilling horror follows the narrative of five friends who go for a break in a remote cabin in the heart of the woods. As the group of friends settle in for the weekend, they soon realise the cabin has more to offer than the fun vacation they were looking for.
With plot details remaining scarce until its release, the film promises to turn the horror genre inside out, by providing a new twist on a classic scenario, which sees a group of young people stranded in the middle of nowhere.
With American film and television screenwriter Drew Goddard (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Cloverfield) at the helm and Josh Whedon (The Avengers, Thor) taking producing and co-screenwriting credits, hopes are understandably high for a horror that delivers.
Starring Thor’s Chris Hemsworth alongside Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Kristen Connolly, viewers are advised to expect the unexpected, and if the buzz is to be believed, The Cabin in the Woods might just be the horror film to end all horrors.
