Lionsgate has released a trailer for producer Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard’s enigmatic horror flick The Cabin in the Woods. The story centers around a group of five friends going on a quiet cabin retreat, only to scratch the surface of something so massive and horrific that they can only begin to fathom what might possibly be going on just as time quickly runs out.
Much mystery has surrounded the project, which was co-written by Whedon and Goddard (Cloverfield), and the movie poster released a few days ago promised a mind-bending puzzle that would have to be solved. I’m not quite sure what to make of the trailer. It starts out as your generic slasher movie but then, some elements of science fiction are thrown in (a forcefield?). It definitely seems like there is a lot more to it than your usual horror movie so color me intrigued. In any case, check it out for yourself below (via Yahoo! Movies)
The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchinson, Fran Kanz, Jesse Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Richard Jenkins. The Cabin in the Woods opens April 13, 2012.
