One of the most fiercely original films to come along in recent memory, “The Cabin in the Woods” derives from the combined minds of Joss Whedon (“The Avengers,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and director Drew Goddard (“Cloverfield”). Part horror, part sci-fi and part comedy, the film straddles multiple genres, infusing each with such creativity and energy that it’s a pure treat to watch.
“Cabin” has kept much of its plot under wraps, with good reason, but to get an insider’s take we turned to Fran Kranz, who plays a carefree stoner in the pic, one of a group of friends who trek to a remote dwelling in the middle of some spooky woods. It’s all part of our Call-In Commentary series, where filmmakers and stars provide audio commentary to their movie trailer. In the video below, Kranz playfully carries along some of the film’s mystique, along with sharing some personal anecdotes along the way. “The Cabin in the Woods” hits theaters this Friday.
