Due out this Friday and directed by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) and co-written by Goddard and Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Serenity), I’m convinced that The Cabin in the Woods will be one of the best horror films of the year.

Having penned the brilliant Cloverfield, along with episodes of Buffy, Angel, Alias, and Lost, I’m really looking forward to seeing what Goddard is like behind the camera, making his directorial debut here.

Adding to all that we’ve seen from the film so far, we now have two new clips to share, courtesy of Yahoo Movies and IGN.

“Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen.

If you think you know this story, think again.

From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, a mind blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out.”

The cast is absolutely brilliant, headed up by Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Whitford, Richard Jenkins, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Jesse Williams, and Whedon-favourites Amy Acker and Fran Kranz.

The Cabin in the Woods will be released in cinemas this Friday, 13th April, and is already being lauded as one of the best horror films in recent years. If you’re a fan of the genre, it looks like this is definitely one to seek out. I know I’ll be catching it the first chance I get. For now, your two new clips from the film.
