Gallagher vs. The King of the Marvel Universe

In light of Peter Gallagher’s allegations that Joss Whedon stole CABIN IN THE WOODS from his ideas, I’ve got a question: in a genre where everything has been done, how does one do something fresh?

Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard wrote CABIN IN THE WOODS together and thought of it as their lovechild. They wrote in everything they ever wanted to see in a scary movie and audiences loved it! It’s a bit sad to think that this piece of satirical gold is stolen. Maybe that’s why Drew Goddard always sounds like he’s about to cry when he talks about it.

Gallagher is claiming 25 distinct similarities between his book and the film. That’s kind of a lot. The plot thickens when we find out that Gallagher used to promote his book on the streets of Santa Monica, CA… where Whedon happens to live. DUN DUN DUN!
