Want to see the Joss Whedon horror flick early?

"The Cabin in the Woods," the new film from Joss Whedon, director of the upcoming "The Avengers" and cult TV hero, and Drew Goddard, writer of "Cloverfield," is getting the sneak peek out treatment from film company Lionsgate.

"The Cabin in the Woods" is about five friends who travel to the titular isolated abode. But like many Whedon properties, it will play with genre conventions in ways not oft seen in more rote horror outtings. Philly is getting a chance to see the flick early, courtesy of entertainment site Hitfix.com, on April 9.

Here's what you do:

  1. Go to "The Cabin in the Woods" Facebook page. Like it.
  2. Select Philadelphia as your location.
  3. Enter the pin: CITW-HITFIX
  4. Follow the rest of the instructions.

Each screening will have a special guest. We get Fran Kranz, who Whedon-ites will remember as Topher from the much-missed "Dollhouse" (Amy Acker, who  was also in "Dollhouse" played Fred on "Angel," is another Whedon alum appearing in the movie).
