It was my decision not to attend South by Southwest 2012 and thereby not see The Cabin in the Woods (Lionsgate, 4.13) a little earlier than most, so there’s no one to blame. And yet somehow everyone has apparently seen this thing except for me, and I’m trying not to feel vaguely resentful about being the guy in the caboose with a burlap bag over my head. Tonight is finally the night — a screening waaaaay downtown at L.A. Live followed by an after-party I probably wont want to attend.

I know I was kept away from this thing because of my feelings about Cabin producer and co-writer Joss Whedon. That’s a blockage on my part, and I recognize that it’s my responsibility to get past that…or not.
