While it's not the most original of plots, the fact this horror flick comes from the mind of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly creator has to count for something, right? After all, we see what appears to be a creature rising from a dark lake, a force field surrounding the woods, some masked baddies and a cabin that's obviously not what it seems.
Cabin, which Whedon directed from a script by Cloverfield scribe Drew Goddard, stars Chris Hemsworth, who took the role before he became famous in Thor, along with veteran actors Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins among others.
The movie was originally supposed to hit theaters in 2009 but was put on hold after MGM went bankrupt. Lionsgate has since picked it up and will release it on April 13.
So does the trailer for The Cabin in the Woods impress? Or is it just the usual schlock? Sound off in our comments section.
