The Paramount crowd devoured the film. By the time the second act kicked into gear, the Paramount screening was starting to feel more like a party than a screening, with audiences anticipating the next twist. By the bombastic third act -- which truly must be seen to be believed -- Cabin had turned the Paramount into a revival tent, and we were all worshipping at the altar of the horror genre and all of its celebratory conventions.

Prior to watching the first trailer for Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s The Cabin in the Woods, I was under the impression that the film was your typical movie about young adults taking a trip into a backwoods area and being tormented by evil forces.

It's been a long journey, but after years of waiting, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's Cabin in the Woods will finally be coming to a theater near you. As was announced back in July, the film is officially set to be released by MGM and Lionsgate on April 13, 2012. This puts the movie only five months away and while the hardcore Whedonites may have been thinking about the movie on a regular basis for the last three years, the project is still behind marketing-wise.
