Japanese Ads for “The Cabin in the Woods” Deemed Too Scary

Can you believe that the horror film The Cabin in the Woods was released in Japan only this weekend, almost a year after its US release? The marketing leading up to the film’s opening makes up for extreme delay a bit by being a little too effective. Hit the jump for details.

Ads placed in major train stations in the Tokyo area had “originally showed a female figure covered in blood, banging on the glass and begging for passing commuters to save her”, according to Rocket News 24. This is relevant to the film, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. The ads were toned down by dulling the colors of the gore and blood after an advertising standards agency deemed them too scary. Below are images of the ads as they look now, and the ads will be up until Sunday.
