Five friends go to a cabin for some fun, and all hell proceeds to break loose. In case you haven't heard, The Cabin in the Woods is pretty damn amazing. Shot in 2009, the collaboration between Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard is considered by some to be a revelation in horror, a sense of fun injected into every horrific turn the film takes. After three years of anticipation, audiences will finally be able to feast their eyes upon this movie marvel this weekend. We were fortunate enough to recently sit down with actor Jesse Williams who plays Holden in Cabin in the Woods, to talk about hiding spoilers, facing monsters, and loving horror.
Here's my interview with Jesse Williams from Drew Goddard's Cabin in the Woods, shot on a Flip:
Like I said in my original SXSW review, The Cabin in the Woods is the perfect film for fans of horror. Taking every trope seen in the last 30 years, it plays with genre, dissects it while concurrently creates one of the most entertaining experiences we've had in years. It's the kind of film you wish you could have been a part of, but you're satisfied knowing there are people in the world making movies like this. To hear from the actors how much fun they had working on the film is not surprising. Whedon and Goddard have created something special with Cabin in the Woods, and anyone who has ever enjoyed a horror film will not regret checking it out as soon as possible. Thank you to Lionsgate for arranging, and Jesse Williams for his time.
The Cabin in the Woods finally lands in theaters everywhere today, April 13th. Seek it out and have a blast!
