DVD Trailer for Cabin in the Woods: Destined to be a Horror Classic
Posted 09.18.12 by Ryan
There are almost too many good options arriving on DVD this week, but our pick has to be the meta-horror/comedy Cabin in the Woods. Delayed for several years, Cabin in the Woods opened in April to mostly terrific reviews and more than doubled its budget at the box office. With a script from The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon and directed by Cloverfield screenwriter Drew Goddard, the movie seemed like a slam-dunk, particularly with Thor and Avengers star Chris Hemsworth leading the cast.
Those looking for bonus features should be pleased with the commentary track, at least, Goddard hopes audiences will like it — he told MTV that he can't remember what he and Whedon talked about.

To be honest, I don't really remember because we—as you'll hear in the commentary—Joss and I just started drinking, and it gets a little blurry. I've been, quite honestly, a little too mortified to go back and listen to it to make sure at a certain point it's just me crying and singing Boyz II Men songs, as I often do when I get drunk.
Those keeping their fingers crossed for a Cabin in the Woods sequel (and for those keeping their fingers crossed that they leave well enough alone), Goddard says that another installment isn't in the works, but could happen down the road. "I always say when people ask about doing another one, the answer is I would love to return to it if we could figure out a way that will not step on what we already did."
But hey, don't just take our word for it, check out what audiences said in the below First Fans clip.
Honorable Mention: If horror isn't your thing, there's still plenty to enjoy this week, including a variety of indie comedies including The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Do-Deca-Pentathalon, Salvation Boulevard and Hysteria. For, well, Katy Perry fans, her concert movie Katy Perry: Part of Me arrives today and dance fans can enjoy the drama Battlefield America. Still, our Honorable Mention has to go to Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures, which collects all four movies in the franchise onto Blu-Ray and DVD, with a restored edition of Raiders of the Lost Ark, which just enjoyed a successful limited IMAX run in theaters.
Don't forget, the disc of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull makes a great coaster!
