About a week or so ago, Comedy Central started doing some promotions for the new Joss Whedon/Drew Goddard collaboration, The Cabin in the Woods. In said promotion, they showed some clips of the film, as well as some intertitles that said something along the lines of: “Five Kids Go To A Cabin”, then the next one said, “Think You Know This Movie?”, while the final one said, “Dead F***ing Wrong”. Before that, I literally couldn’t get away from all the critics writing about how the film revolutionized the horror genre as we know it.
One of the last films completed under the old MGM leadership (the other being Red Dawn, and both starring Thor) the release of this movie had been delayed several times, originally slated for wide release on February 5, 2010 – it has now been announced that it will come out April (Friday) the 13th, 2012. And let me just say – it’s about fricking time.
