Joss Whedon Opens Up About THE CABIN IN THE WOODS

New postby BooMan » Fri Feb 17, 2012 1:52 am

With the release date finally in our sites (April 13, 2012) Total Film caught up with co-writer/producer Joss Whedon to talk about the long ago project, THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, and his thoughts about the film.

"It’s basically a very loving hate letter," he tells the site. “On some level it was completely a lark, me and Drew [Goddard, director] trying to figure out what the most fun we could have would be. On another level it’s a serious critique of what we love and what we don’t about horror movies. I love being scared. I love that mixture of thrill, of horror, that objectification/identification thing of wanting definitely for the people to be alright but at the same time hoping they’ll go somewhere dark and face something awful. The things that I don’t like are kids acting like idiots, the devolution of the horror movie into torture porn and into a long series of sadistic comeuppances. Drew and I both felt that the pendulum had sung a little too far in that direction."

Plot Synopsis: Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, a mind-blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.

1.) A horror movie made by people who actually want to scare people.
2.) Kids that don't act like idiots.
3.) Moving away from "torture porn"
4.) Joss Whedon.

Sounds like a great movie to me. Count me in.
