Drew Goddard Reveals The 5 Films That Influenced 'The Cabin In The Woods'
Drew Goddard reveals the influences for Cabin In The Woods in an interview with blogs.indiewire.com.
"Suffice it to say it’s not always easy to make a film that attempts to go for both scares and humor and have it appeal to folks outside of die-hard horror hounds, so it should be no surprise to learn that Goddard and co-writer Joss Whedon (who really needs no introduction at this point) looked in and around the genre for inspiration for the film. We caught up with Goddard while doing press rounds for the release of “Cabin In The Woods” on DVD and Blu-ray today, and he was more than happy to talk about the films that helped influence the creation of one of the wittiest and most entertaining American horror films in ages. Though for those of you out there who still haven’t seen the film, be warned, spoilers lie ahead. So avoid the mumbling doomsayer at the deserted gas station, steer clear of reciting any ancient text that could possibly raise the dead, and go get your hands on a copy of the film to watch before you read any further!"
