In 2009 , Drew Goddard realized a small horror film co- written and produced by Joss Whedon , the creator of the famous series ” Buffy against the vampires .” “The Cabin in the Woods ” is humbly offered to read A to Z concomitant genres of horror and slasher movie , with a plot very original . Drew Goddard and staged his first feature film after writing the script of “Cloverfield” Matt Reeves and several episodes of the series ” Buffy ,” ” Angel ” and ” Lost ” always nearby stables and Whedon JJ Abrams .
To make the best vision of the genre, it adjoignait talents of Peter Deming, director of photography on ” Evil Dead 2 ” and Sam Raimi’s “Scream” by Wes Craven – two major influences of this ” Cabin “. Then the financial woes of MGM from the end of the year explaining the postponement of the release of the film until today in France – or until December 2011 for the United States.
Difficult to say too much about ” The Cabin in the Woods” without disclosing some of its ins and outs , then it suffices here to recall the first third , in which the stakes are quickly raised . The amazing scenario Goddard and Whedon alternates between two stories that oppose de facto by their environment : on one side , the sanitized atmosphere executives of a public company , on the other , the preparation of a group five friends for a weekend of drinking and lust in the heart of a secluded cabin . It takes quite a long time so that the viewer keeps wondering where it has been falling.
Intelligently , ” The Cabin in the Woods” goes back in this mythological origin giving it a tragic perspective , since the expression of violence serves a greater purpose , a universal goal to Lovecraftian overtones . This logic purgatory , which is the challenge of any horror film , is placed in context at the same time as it is mocked : where the quality of the feature film , which not only offer a brilliant narrative, likes to juggle codes that are live. In two words , smart and awesome .
