Cabin In The Woods Clip Has The Characters Playing A Game

Among the more anticipated films set to release next month, especially by those of us who love Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s work, is Cabin in the Woods, a horror film that not only looks like a lot of fun, but also appears to have a few surprising plot developments in store. I haven't seen the film yet, so spoilers are at a minimum in this article, and the video we have to show you doesn’t give much away, other than that Cabin celebrates a time-honored adolescent past time.

Ah, truth or dare. The game for teens and young adults is full of potential for drama, awkwardness, humor, and more over-shares and revelations than a circle of friends might be able to handle. Or in the case of Cabin in the Woods, it could lead to a really bad idea, at least, by the rules of horror movies. Here's a new clip from the movie, courtesy of MTV.

Hey, creepy basement in the cabin! The door just popped open by itself. Dare you to go down there! Nothing good can come of that... for them, anyway. For us, this has all the makings of something interesting and possibly scary, or funny. Going by the previous work of writers Whedon (Buffy, Firefly) and Goddard (Lost, Cloverfield), I think it’s fair to say that you never really know what kind of jack is going to pop out of the box with these two, which is why Cabin in the Woods has the potential to be a really fun horror movie.

Cabin made its debut during this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, but it doesn’t officially release into theaters until April 13. The movie stars Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Jesse Williams, Chris Hemsworth, Fran Kranz, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Brian J. White, and Amy Acker.
