Joss Whedon put his stamp into the world of 90s television with his cult series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But all of sudden, his name is all over 2012. Not only will he be the director for The Avengers movie, he also has a horror film coming out in April. Unfortunately, he is only the writer for this, with Drew Goddard (writer of Cloverfield) making his directorial debut. The Cabin in the Woods is what it sounds like — a group of young friends go out to a cabin in the woods, and horror ensues. It doesn’t sound like anything new, but with Whedon’s fingerprints and this goosebumpy trailer, I’m excited.
The film opens April 13, 2012.
