Lionsgate's The Cabin in the Woods is a unique genre piece that throws every known cliche to the wind. Filled with comedy, horror and drama, the film provides enough twists and turns to keep even the biggest genre fans guessing. We were elated when we got invited to talk with stars Anna Hutchison, Jesse Williams, and Kristen Connolly about the film, their reactions to the final product, and just who is the easiest to scare.
Spiking the horror genre with their signature flare, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard have crafted a unique genre piece out of The Cabin in the Woods. We were honored to get the chance to sit down with both iconic creators, talking with them about their excitement to be doing a horror film, what it was like writing together, and just how they came up with that remarkable ending.
For years I have respected the work of both Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford. In Lionsgate's The Cabin in the Woods both get to showcase their comedic talents with endless banter and iconic one liners. I got to sit down with both actors a few weeks back to discuss the film's complex plot, their reaction to the final product, and just how often the veered off script.
Lionsgate's The Cabin in the Woods opened the SXSW Film Festival. We were fortunate to get a spot on the highly sought after red carpet as the stars arrived for the big premiere. Through the pouring rain and gusting winds we were able to gather some information about the film, the unique shoot, the character influences, and just how big a fan of horror each of them truly is.
