Co-writer/producer Joss Whedon, left, and co-writer/director Drew Goddard at work on the set. "The work of John Carpenter and Sam Raimi is very important to this movie," Goddard says. "It’s not just a horror movie. There are certainly movies like Dr. Strangelove that were very important. I looked at the work of Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker’s series a lot."
