Our previous post on the film here

…Fran Kranz, the Dollhouse star who also appears in the upcoming horror movie Cabin in the Woods, calls it “basically Evil Dead meets The Truman Show.”

Writer/director Drew Goddard and co-writer/producer Joss Whedon remain secretive about the plot of the film, saying only that it will subvert the horror genre.

Kranz, who plays computer genius Topher in Whedon’s Fox series Dollhouse, wouldn’t elaborate on his own intriguing description of the movie, saying only that it has to do with “the order in which these people kind of die,” he said in an exclusive interview Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Pasadena, Calif. ..

…Like the familiar story, each of the five teens fills an archetypal role before the film shakes things up. “I’m the party guy,” Kranz said. “I’m that guy. You know how it is. There’s the jock guy. There’s the virginal kind of girl. There’s the party slutty girl. There’s the kind of nice guy who kind of gets the girl. Then there’s the stoner. I’m that guy. I’m the party animal stoner guy, and it’s a lot of fun to play.”…

Sounds like good horror fun to me. The film opens February 5th, 2010…
