Cloverfield and The Cabin in the Woods
Both movies were written by Drew Goddard, but are there other connections?
Dear Sara –
I understand there’s some sort of storyline connection between the movies CLOVERFIELD and THE CABIN IN THE WOODS. They both have monsters, but otherwise, I don’t get it.
Although Drew Goddard wrote CLOVERFIELD and co-wrote (with Joss Whedon) THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, which Goddard also directed, no connection was intended by the filmmakers. However, some fans of both films contend that – well, not to be too spoilerish for those who haven’t seen one or the other or either – the events in CLOVERFIELD could conceivably have been triggered by the finale of CABIN IN THE WOODS.
