POSTERS

Preview: Cabin in the Woods (2012)

Synopsis:

A group of friends go off the beaten path to a secluded cabin in the woods where their mental and physical fortitude will be tested by unseen hands, manipulating their every reaction.

  • Poster: B-

Review:

I'll give it credit for looking unusual, which helps sell a lot of horror films these days, the poster's background is just too bland and Saw-like to be of benefit.

  • Trailer: B+

Review:

As the trailer opens, you're expecting a fairly common story that makes you wonder why they are even trying; then the trailer throws in a curveball and begins looking like a new and inventive twist on the genre.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
