New poster arrives for The Cabin In The Woods

Joss Whedon's horror will mess with your head

A new teaser poster has been released for mystery horror The Cabin In The Woods, and very foreboding it is too.

Neatly presenting the titular cabin as a Rubik’s cube puzzle, the new poster trades heavily on the film’s mystery element, with the tagline, “You think you know the story,” setting the eerie mood off nicely.

So what is the story then? Well, Chris Hemsworth will be starring as a young professional who pays a weekend visit to a homely but isolated cottage with a group of friends.

Now, anyone who’s seen Evil Dead could have told him how that's likely to turn out, and sure enough, the group of hapless weekenders soon realise there’s something very wrong with their new accommodation…

The film has been co-written by Joss Whedon and Cloverfield’s Drew Goddard, with Goddard also taking on directorial duties. Meanwhile, Hemsworth will be backed up by a supporting cast including Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly and Richard Jenkins.

Rumour has it that The Cabin In The Woods is a genuinely terrifying return to the haunted house genre, and the film will be scaring UK audiences stiff from 13 April 2012. You can check out the new poster in full, below…


 

Which has you more excited, this or the Evil Dead remake? Thoughts below, please.

      Man, wasn't this supposed to be out january of this year? It's been knocking about for ages... not normally a good sign, whoever has produced it.

      I will imagine this movie will basically be like any other horror movie out there, but I got to say I loved the posted and it got me pretty excited to see it actually.

      It got caught up with MGM's troubles which is why it has been stuck in limbo for so long

      I got a little drunk back in March this year and wrote a email to the MGM financial department begging them to push for a release of this movie, and I pointed out that, as it has been finished for several months, it made good financial sense to release it and recoup as much of the money back as possible (just in case they go bankrupt). It now seems that my letter may have moved things along a bit! I am expecting a Christmas Card and a Thank You note from Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard any day now...

      Funny coincidence Alexr, Dalidab got drunk and wrote to Universal saying he had a great idea for an Akira remake...

      Sarcasm is about as lost on you as Zoe Saldana with no clothes on isn't it Dalidab :p

      Now Dalidab that wouldn't be a good idea, you may be able to overpower the little guys one or two at a time but 40 kids would be too much of a handful (and not in a good way!) even for you...

      I did get it right. Most of the guys you never shut up about wanting to f**k are technically still kids.

      Either way you'd have to invest in a hell of a lot of rohypnol.
