What's a horror movie without a few sensational death scenes? One that could be described as less-than-satisfactory by the gung ho gore fans out there. And although there is a lot of secrecy surrounding the action in [article id="1680856"]"The Cabin in the Woods,"[/article] it is not spoiling anything to say that there might be a gory death or two.
When MTV News caught up with castmembers Anna Hutchison, Jesse Williams and Kristen Connolly at the film's [article id="1680787"]South by Southwest film festival[/article] press day, we asked them to describe how the deaths in the Joss Whedon-penned, Drew Goddard-directed film are different from what we've seen onscreen before.
"I think people get connected to the characters, but somehow I find the murders in this film are more thrilling," Williams said. "You know the train wreck effect where you want to look away — something that is both awesome and terrifying at the same time?
"Like, one time I almost touched a shark in the open ocean. I didn't realize it was a shark. 'I'm excited, but I'm going to die.' So, those kind of things happening at once. Anna knows what I'm talking about."
"Well, lose a hand. I don't know about die," Hutchison offered. "It's a bit dramatic."
"She's from New Zealand where it's like playing in the yard for them: 'Go play with the sharks!' " he teased. "I think it's both those things happening at once where you're uniquely thrilled, but you're going to miss that character — but that's not saying that any of us die or don't die in the end."
