Previously at the ICA - Films
5 Apr 2012
After almost a year in the wilderness, Ultra Culture Cinema returns to the ICA with a special preview of The Cabin in the Woods, Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s superlative, hype-magnetic new horror comedy.
Shot a little over three years ago, the film’s release was delayed indefinitely after MGM filed for bankruptcy in 2010. Now though, it emerges triumphant — like the lone survivor of an axe-wielding maniac — ready to premiere as the opening film at this year’s SXSW festival, before hopping over to the UK on 5 April for its very first UK public screening at Ultra Culture Cinema.
Featuring a cast of uniformly awesome faux-teens (including a pre-fame Chris Hemsworth!), The Cabin in the Woods is the very best kind of horror comedy: by turns razor sharp, genuinely hilarious and properly, nerve-wrackingly scary.
Plus! All manner of crap before and after the film to keep you amused, including Ultra Culture DJs, special guests and — of course — the world-famous ICA rock climbing wall.
Dir Drew Goddard, US, 2011, 95mins, Cert 15
