THE CABIN IN THE WOODS Trailer
Yeah this has been done for a while, but unlike other movies that sit on a shelf for years this one was caught up in the death of a company and in limbo due to rights issues. By all acounts it's a good movie.Producer Joss Whedon and director/co-writer Drew Goddard have been coy about how The Cabin in the Woods turns the eponymous horror sub-genre on its head. The first trailer for the movie has gone online and now we can see what they meant. The Cabin in the Woods genre usually revolves around something supernatural with only a mystical explanation as a vague guide. Judging by the trailer, it looks like Whedon and Goddard have thrown together the scientific in the supernatural. It was an approach Whedon took in the fourth season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but instead of Frankenstein, Cabin looks something more along the lines of Hostel where hapless tourists are subjected to the sadistic whims of a shadowy organization. That organization also has forcefields.

Hostel Part III (DVD) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
Lowered expectations or is this really decent?Believe it or not this third film breathes some nice fresh air into the dank stuffy cells that came before it, and while not perfect by any means, it does enough right to be considered to be a worthy follow-up. Yes, the usual direct-to-video pitfalls are here, but given the amount of onscreen mayhem and a rather clever storyline, they're all pretty easy to forgive...
...Hostel Part III is way better than it has any right to be. Quick, fun, and blissfully brutal it stands head and shoulders above the usual direct-to-video sequels that are shoved down our throats at a steady pace. Given the flick's setting it's kind of fitting that it beat the odds. We love it when the house loses!

PIRANHA 3D Director Alexandre Aja to Helm Adaptation of Joe Hill’s HORNS
Could be decent. Aja has made pretty much crap since Haute tension(sorry Adge, I just wasn't real fond of Hills). The book itself needs some work. It has a great concept that, for a short book, wears thin after a bit. Hill(S.King's son) shows a lot of promise but needs to get some road miles on him before he can compete with his dad.
Here’s the synopsis for Joe Hill’s Horns:
“Ignatius Martin Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke the next morning with a headache, put his hands to his temples and felt something unfamiliar, a pair of knobby, pointed protuberances. He was so ill-wet-eyed and weak-he didn’t think anything of it at first, was too hung-over for thinking or worry. But when he was swaying over the toilet, he glanced at himself in the mirror above the sink and saw he had grown horns while he slept.
The second son of a renowned musician and doting mother, Ig Perrish has a privileged life and expectations of a bright future with his childhood sweetheart, Merrin Williams. But life takes an unexpected dark turn when Merrin is brutally killed and suspicion falls hard on Ig.
A year passes, but Ig is nowhere near over his grief or his rage . . . feelings that come to a head in a lost evening of alcohol and hate. When he wakes the next morning he discovers that he has undergone a surreal transformation, and is in possession of an incredible power. It isn’t long before he turns his terrible new abilities towards vengeance. Unfortunately Ig is about to learn that when it comes to revenge, the devil is in the details.”
I haven't read Horns...yet. :/
And I still think that Haute Tension was one of the lamest movies that I've seen. And I've seen Paint Your Wagon.
Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.
