As the release of Cabin in the Woods approaches, I wonder if I’m the only one who feels a mixture of excitement and faint anxiety over the horror film. As a fan of both Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s work, I’m excited to finally get to see their movie. And I’m also anxious over the thought that somehow, I won’t make it to the release without accidentally catching an earful of spoiler. Even the recent TV spot hints at a twist we won’t see coming.
The film made its debut at the South by Southwest Film Festival tonight, but it won’t arrive in theaters until April 13, which means we have more than a month to wait.
Rest assured, you’ll get no spoilers in this article. Ahead, what you’ll find is an amusing “warning” from Joss Whedon himself, courtesy of SFX.co.uk (via Whedonesque), in which he urges people not to spoil the movie. It’s more of a threat than a plea, though something tells me Joss Whedon fans wouldn’t be disappointed with the “punishment.”
“If you give away the plot of this film to someone who hasn’t seen it, I will personally come to your house and make fun of you in front of people you respect.”
Sure, he’s mostly joking (at least, the part about coming to people’s houses), but this only reaffirms the notion that Cabin in the Woods is a horror movie you won’t want to be spoiled on.
We’ll have a spoiler-free review of Cabin in the Woods posted later tonight, so be sure to keep an eye out for it! In the meantime, those of you who want a peek at the latest photos and TV spot (which teases “You think you know the story. Think again.”), click here.
