First production still from Joss Whedon's Cabin in the Woods

Joss Whedon, he who created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly, is a genre favourite. But financial strife at MGM saw the high-concept horror film he wrote, The Cabin in the Woods. sit on a shelf for the better part of three years, with many film geeks fearing it would never see the light of day.

Now Lionsgate, the only studio out there that loves horror as much as horror fans, has bought the film and promises to release it soon . . . like possibly October. And to prove they aren't full of bull, they released a still, which we share below thanks to the cool dudes at Bloody Disgusting.

OK, so it doesn't show much other than the cast, which includes a pre-George Kirk and pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth. Goes to show how long this sat in limbo. But at least we've got SOMETHING. And Shawn and I promise to share more as the release draws near.

The film is directed by Drew Goddard and is a twist on the classic scenario of young people trapped at a, you guessed it, cabin in the woods.
