“The Cabin in the Woods” cast relive their SXSW premiere


Posted by on

“The Cabin in the Woods,” the long-anticipated horror mash-up from the creative minds of Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, finally made its big premiere Friday night at the South by Southwest festival in Austin. And, according to the people who gushed about how great the film was after the screening, it was the perfect way to kick off the movie and music festival.

That’s why it made perfect sense to premiere the movie at this festival, Whedon explained to IFC at the premiere.

“SXSW feels like a perfect venue for this, because it’s a way of saying it is a horror movie, it is a really good time, but it’s also a film,” he said.

The premiere was an exciting time for the cast (except for Jesse Williams, who was forced to miss it), Whedon and Goddard. Even though the film has been screened in critics circles before, this was the first time a movie-going audience got to see it.

“This will be the first time we’ve seen ‘Cabin’ with an audience, so we’re both really excited to see how it goes,” Goddard said to IFC before the premiere. “This movie was designed to be a fun movie, and hopefully our audience will go along with us.”

And, from what we heard, the audience did. Turns out the crowd went “apeshit” after they saw the movie.

“I’ve never sat in a theater where people are laughing that hard, and are genuinely horrified and actually don’t know what’s going to happen next,” Bradley Whitford admitted during an interview after the premiere.

It also turns out that this was Whedon’s first time at SXSW, so it was his big debut just like it was the premiere for “Cabin in the Woods.”

“I haven’t been to a lot of festivals. This is kind of my maiden voyage. But it’s a really nice combination of business and art,” Whedon said. “People who are here with their short film who are just starting out, those are the people that you see that are the most intriguing. Those are the people that Drew and I still feel we are.”

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
