Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen the commercials for the upcoming Hollywood horror offering The Cabin in the Woods. With a release date looming just a week away, promotion for this film is hitting a fever pitch. And fanning the flames of internet buzz is Cabin writer/director himself, Drew Goddard. Over the past couple of weeks, Goddard (in conjunction with Dread Central) has been taking his film on the road for advanced screenings in cities across the country, and Saucy Josh was lucky enough to catch last night’s show in Berkeley.
I don’t think it’s really fair for me to drop a review at this point, since I’d be referencing points my fellow aficionados haven’t seen, creating a one-way conversation. And like Goddard himself said, “This film is much easier to talk about AFTER you’ve seen it”. So while I won’t be discussing particular scenes or characters (yet), I’m happy to report that the media hype seems justified. To put it mildly, the sold out crowd of fanboys and film geeks was pleased. You will want to get out and see this film before “the secret” inevitably leaks (because it’s a good secret, and it will leak–but not here!).
