On September 18th Lionsgate Home Entertainment will bring The Cabin in the Woods to Blu-ray. Created by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) and Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), this postmodern horror comedy focuses on a group of young people (Kristen Connolly, The Happening, Chris Hemsworth, The Avengers, Anna Hutchison, Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior, Fran Kranz, Dollhouse, and Jesse Williams, Brooklyn’s Finest) whose vacation at a secluded mountain cabin suddenly turns into a brutal fight for survival.
The initial attacks suggest a menace not dissimilar from the horrors found in pictures like The Evil Dead or Friday the 13th – in this case, the monsters are a pain-loving tribe of zombie frontierspeople. However, as the body count rises, the survivors begin to suspect the influence of a far more insidious behind-the-scenes presence, one whose actions mask darker and more complex intentions.
The Cabin in the Woods also features a talented ensemble cast that includes Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), Brian White (Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds), and Amy Acker (Angel).
Lionsgate’s Blu-ray/Digital Copy combo pack presents the film in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio with a 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track.
