Holy friggin' mackerel, not sure if I'll be seeing it again in theaters but I'll definitely be picking it up the day it hits on dvd!!
That makes 3 of us.......Jordan and I will have to hit this one!
This movie was written by Josh Whedon. Considering how successful Whedon has been in the past with Vampire material, I think WB made a mistake not getting Whedon to do the new Dark Shadows film. I really liked "Cabin in the Woods", and I think he may have actually made a film that wouldn't have upset fans of the original series, and would have had a broader appeal to anybody unfamiliar with the old soap opera.
Joss Whedon also wrote the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" movie with Kristy Swanson and Rutger Hauer.
But let's be clear. Joss didn't have any creative control over that movie. Exec producers and director really screwed that one up. Not Joss. We saw his true vision of the story in the series which brought to life what Buffy should have been in the movie.
Of course, with control over the material, Joss was able to give it the darker tone he'd originally intended for the film.
