So, it turns out that the recently released horror flick The Cabin in the Woods has a werewolf in it! Since I rarely ever watch movies (bad me) this is news to me and something to share for those of you who also didn’t know. Hurray for werewolf surprises! The movie is out now on DVD and Blu-ray and packed full of special features. Check out the details below.
“A rambunctious group of five college friends steal away for a weekend of debauchery in an isolated country cabin, only to be attacked by horrific supernatural creatures in a night of endless terror and bloodshed. Sound familiar? Just wait. As the teens begin to exhibit standard horror movie behavior, a group of technicians in a control room are scrutinizing, and sometimes even controlling, every move the terrified kids make! With their efforts continually thwarted by the all powerful eye in the sky, do they have any chance of escape?”

If you want even more info on the effects found in The Cabin in the Woods, check out this super long interview with Visual FX Supervisor David LeRoy Anderson. In it he talks about the werewolves.
“The people that were working on the Werewolf, it was Norman Cabrera and Matt Rose, and they’re legendary in this industry. He [Rose] just has such a passion about werewolves, the whole history of them, so there was no disputing he should be the man in charge of it.”
Sounds awesome to me. Anyone here a fan of the film? Let us know in a comment below.
