New Posters for Joss Whedon's Cabin in the Woods Mock Its Countless Delays [UPDATE]

Screenwriter Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard must be thrilled with and annoyed by their much-delayed horror film The Cabin in the Woods, because their new marketing campaign reflects the completed MGM movie's lack of a release date. Nothing is more effective in "horror" font than sarcasm, apparently.


And I thought I was done with strikethrough humor!

Update, 4/15: As you may have seen in the comments below, these posters are actually just part of a fan campaign to get The Cabin in the Woods released, and not anything official from Team Joss Whedon. If you care to add your support, however, click here.

    And people wonder why fans worship Joss.

  • Joe says:

    I like his work (much of it anyway), but the 'worship', as you put it, really grates on my nerves. Your post is no exception.

  • Tommy Marx says:

    Fair enough. I actually think he's a great writer, and Buffy is still one of my all-time favorite series. I didn't get Angel, and I thought Firefly was overrated. Not that I didn't enjoy the series, but it isn't all that.
    But many fans are fanatical when it comes to Joss. And I think those two posters explain why.
    I do not worship him myself. But I certainly understand why some people do. And if that really grates on your nerves, I respectfully suggest that you are too deeply invested in something that requires no investment at all. It doesn't matter to me if someone thinks Lady Gaga is everything or thinks she's overrated. If someone thinks the first "Matrix" was lame, that's not going to change how I feel about the movie whatsoever. I may joke about Ke$ha's complete lack of talent, but if someone loves her, I'm not going to be bothered, let alone offended.
    I am, however, impressed by Whedon's poster campaign, and I think it clearly explains why some fans worship him. I apologize that that thought grates on your nerves. But I do have to wonder why it does. There's no law (so far) that requires anyone to agree with anyone else's likes or dislikes. Why exactly does some fan's exuberant praise of someone they admire grate on your nerves?

    From the Cinema Blend article:
    UPDATE: This is an update of the sad variety. The Film Stage is reporting that these posters are actually not official, but are part of a fan-led campaign to get the movie released. Too bad.
