He’s covered vampires, spaceships and now, with his upcoming blockbuster ‘The Avengers’, he’s doing superheroes. But in the meantime ‘Buffy’ creator Joss Whedon turns his sharp wit and inventive mind on the hoariest of horror clichés with upcoming low-budget thriller ‘Cabin in the Woods’. Fulfilling his reputation as as one of the hardest working men in Hollywood, Whedon co-wrote and produced the film – in between his various other film, online, TV and comic book projects – with ‘Cloverfield’ scribe Drew Goddard, who makes his directorial debut here. The slightly-too-revealing trailer comes off like a cross between ‘The Evil Dead’ and ‘Cube’, with a fair bit of humour and some impressive special effects. Tom Huddleston
‘Cabin in the Woods’ is set for a UK release on April 13.
