I find it absolutely hilarious that nearly every single news story now carries Thor and star Chris Hemsworth’s name in the title, but the real focus should be on the “hype factor” that was diminished when MGM put the film (and its own company) in limbo.
Before getting exiled, “Lost” and Cloverfield director Drew Goddard’s The Cabin in the Woods 3D was shrouded in secrecy, called the “slasher to end all slasher films” and described as a new twist on a classic scenario — in this case the young-people-stranded-in-the-woods horror trope. We personally know the film carries an array of creatures…so chew on that a bit.
Now that Lionsgate has acquired the film for a supposed October 28th release, it’s time to get the steam circulating once again. This weekend the official Twitter page posted a pretty hilarious new poster that punctuates the excitement behind Lionsgate’s new involvement.
