Trailer Talkin’ with… ‘The Cabin in the Woods’

+

It’s no secret that we love Joss Whedon with a deathless passion. We would follow him to the ends of the earth—which is, appropriately, where he takes us in his latest project, the highly-produced horror orgy, The Cabin in the Woods. But is love truly blind? It must be said that even for this kind of supernatural, kids-in-the-brush, Scooby Doo-meets-Blair Witch affair, the trailer for Cabin looks amazingly stupid. Though we did dig that (possible) nod to Mad Men with the two-way mirror segment—horrific possibilities abound. Wikipedia, rather hilariously, has pegged it as a “tongue-in-cheek thriller-horror film,” a genre which we thought we knew only too well. But who knows? Perhaps there’s still some whimsical originality yet in the old Joss-stick.
