Several reviews have popped up online regarding The Cabin in the Woods — released in cinemas from April 13, 2012! — and they are very encouraging. Thus, I’ve posted a few extracts below featuring Amy’s character. Happy reading!
I feel like the less you know about this film, the better, so let’s begin with my capsule review version: The Cabin in the Woods is an incredibly clever and fun take on classic horror movie tropes centered around a group of kids going to a, you guessed it, cabin in the woods. Filmmakers Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard — the two wrote the film together with Whedon producing and Goddard directing — have come up with a wonderfully conceived story that gives a bigger than life and fascinating explanation for why so many horror movie cliches exist in the first place. If you’re a fan of the genre, you really have to check this movie out.
… Without giving away the specifics of their characters, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford make one hell of a duo and there’s some great back and forth between the two veteran actors, along with Whedon vet Amy Acker, who serves as a nice, cynical springboard for the two of them.
Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford have perhaps the most fun in the whole, but again to describe what their characters are up to would give away the plot of the film. Needless to say their scenes are quite darkly delightful, and nicely aided by a smart turn by Amy Acker (who starred in Buffy spin-off Angel) as one of their white-coated work-colleagues.
