Keeping Secrets Was Tough For ‘Cabin In The Woods’ Star Anna Hutchinson

cabin_in_the_woods_ver5Opening today in theaters, the much buzzed about CABIN IN THE WOODS is the brainchild of co-writers DREW GODDARD and JOSS WHEDON and succeeds in turning the otherwise familiar “teens in peril” genre on its ear. WHEDON, of course, created the genre busting series BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL where GODDARD worked as a story editor on many episodes. Directed by GODDARD, the “CABIN” cast includes RICHARD JENKINS, BRADLEY WHITFORD, JESSE WILLIAMS, CHRIS HEMSWORTH, KRISTEN CONNOLLY and ANNA HUTCHISON.
Because of the many twists and turns in “CABIN IN THE WOODS”, secrecy was paramount during production of the film. During our recent interview, HUTCHINSON admitted that keeping mum about what she was working on wasn’t easy. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

Bradley Whitford Surprised That ‘The Cabin In The Woods’ Escaped Hollywood

cabin-in-the-woods-poster2In theaters this week, the comedy/horror send-up THE CABIN IN THE WOODS has been getting great word-of-mouth since being screened at the recent SxSW Festival. Co-written (with cult fave JOSS WHEDON) and directed by DREW GODDARD, the cast features RICHARD JENKINS, BRADLEY WHITFORD, JESSE WILLIAMS, CHRIS HEMSWORTH, KRISTEN CONNOLLY and ANNA HUTCHISON. We can’t really divulge the characters that WHITFORD and JENKINS portray for fear of the “spoiler police” but we can say that they provide ample comic relief from the horrific action. We spoke with the two of them last week and WHITFORD admitted he’d just seen the finished film with an audience and loved the reaction it got. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

‘Silent House’ Star Elizabeth Olsen Prefers Her Scary Movies On The Dry Side

phwufgq1byoqzz_3_mCurrently in theaters and struggling at the box office (down 68% since in its second week), SILENT HOUSE is a spooky gothic horror film told in real-time and centering on a young woman trapped inside a seemingly haunted lake house. Based on a 2010 Argentinean film by GUSTAVO HERNANDEZ, this new incarnation comes from filmmakers CHRIS KENTIS and LAURA LAU. Probably best known for OPEN WATER, their frightening collaboration about swimmers stranded in shark infested waters, KENTIS and LAU know how to make an audience squirm. And, in our recent interview, OLSEN confessed that she’d have no trouble watching SILENT HOUSE but, for her, OPEN WATER just wouldn’t be an option. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
