Lionsgate has just premiered a stunning one sheet for Drew Goddard’s The Cabin in the Woods, his high-concept horror slasher arriving in theaters Friday, April 13, 2012. The poster puts a “new spin” on the slasher genre promising a Rubick’s Cube of horror. Hell. Effin’. Yes.
Much like Cloverfield, which Goddard scripted, the Cabin story line provides a new twist on a classic scenario — in this case the young-people-stranded-in-the-woods horror trope. Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. This is the official crunch: “If you think you know this story, think again. ‘Cabin in the Woods’ is a mind-blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.”
No other plot details are available, but it helps that Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth stars alongside Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams and Brian White. Poster courtesy of Aint it Cool News
