New trailer for The Cabin in the Woods

"The lambs have come to the killing floor"

The Cabin In The Woods has released a new trailer, in which Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard cram as many horror movie clichés into a minute as possible, while simultaneously hinting that all is not what it seems.

This new trailer makes the movie’s real antagonists a little more explicit, showing a command centre full of observers who appear to be controlling events within the titular cabin.

Check out the new trailer below to see what we mean…

Producer Joss Whedon told us the film is “basically a very loving hate letter,” as he lines up a bunch of archetypal horror tropes to be skewered by his expectation-subverting plot twists.

That creepy local, isolated lakeside cabin, unusual mirror and conventionally beautiful crop of youngsters... all deliberately clichéd box-tickers. However, as the trailer points out, "You think you know the story... you think you know the place... think again."

We’re still none the wiser as to who the cabin’s observers are, or what exactly they want from Chris Hemsworth and friends, but from the look of the latest footage, it’s going to be a lot of fun finding out.

The Cabin In The Woods opens in the UK on 13 April 2012.

What do you think the film's secrets are? Speculation below, please.

      I thought this film was best to see without seeing a trailer. I'm not watching this trailer as the first trailer appeared to ruin the film showing you the whole thing. If this one is the same then it should be avoided.

      @JimTheGreat you're entirely right... I wish I hadn't, as it has probably just ruined a massive load of mystery the film will carry. s**t.

      The trailer looks awesome and if I know Joss Whedon the trailler hasn't spoiled anything. If anything the trailer has probably purposely made people think it's just ruined the movie just so the plots twist will surprise you more. I for one are looking forward to this. Whedon can do no wrong.
