Trailer – The Cabin in the Woods Trailer 2

Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.

Impressions: The first trailer for this blew my mind and made me really eager to see, now the second trailer has been released and i drooled so much that i nearly short circuited my keyboard.

Finally a horror film this year that looks all kind of insane and awesomeness, hurry up April 13th as this has now shot to the top of my list.

Trailer: The Cabin in the Woods

Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen.

I love the look of this film to me it looks like if you took the truman show and made it into a horror film.

Joss Whedon is one of my favorite writers and he can bring a tame idea and bring it alive with a bang so i for one can’t wait until April when the film comes out
