How spoiler culture (mostly) spared 'The Cabin in the Woods'

When "Firefly" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator Joss Whedon introduced the film "The Cabin in the Woods" last month at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, he told the audience, "I hope you enjoy it, and then sorta keep it to yourself."

Whedon, the film's writer and producer, really meant it. He even recorded a video plea asking fans who saw the horror film not to give away any of the major plot points online.

It's no secret that the film, long awaited by Whedon fans, doesn't really take place in a cabin in the woods. The trailer points out that a group of college kids only think they're spending a weekend in what is actually a controlled environment.

Beyond that, however, fans who have seen the movie already are expected to stay mum on what happens, to avoid ruining it for those who are still waiting to see the film when it hits theaters Friday.

    Wasn't a fan of Buffy, but Firefly was an awesome show that was cut short well before its time. I'll check the movie out
