Blueberry Ice Cream: “The Cabin in the Woods” Trailer

Yes, I know, another The Cabin in the Woods post. It’s just that good of a movie, though. It’s the type of film that not only surprises you by how well-made it is but also surprises you by how smart it is. It’s like Scream (1996) in that it calls attention to itself–its genre, characters, and story arcs. Without giving too much away (as Christina pointed out, we hate those people), I will say that the trailer did not do it justice.

I pointed out a while back how there are at least 7 types of trailers.

Amused, Casey answers the question as she leans against her kitchen counter. She says, “I don’t know,” to which Ghost Face responds, “What comes to mind?” She picks John Carpenter’s Halloween and immediately picks up a knife from a knife stand—by the way, a nifty foreshadowing technique. But, of course, I will spare you my dissertation on what makes Scream a great film. [If you’re interested in a brief overview, though, check out my Tumblr post on my top 10 horror films—I’ll eventually post up something more extensive on Indies Unchained!].

So, I’d like to broaden it up to something even more standard: what’s your favorite film? When asked this simple question, a lot of people get stumped. Continue reading
