The Cabin in the Woods is a 2012 American horror comedy film directed by Drew Goddard in his directorial debut, produced by Joss Whedon, and written by Whedon and Goddard. The film stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins, and Bradley Whitford. The plot follows a group of college students who retreat to a remote forest cabin where they fall victim to backwoods zombies and the technicians who manipulate events from an underground facility.

Amy Lee submitted her cover of Chris Isaak's Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing for the film, but it was rejected.

Vin1.jpg This cover and I have history. We've been through a lot together! It all started back in '09. I'm always on the lookout for a chance to write for film, and the people making "Cabin in the Woods" wanted a cover of this song for the scene where a girl is dared to make out with a taxidermy wolf head on the wall. Gotta love it! We were hanging out writing together anyway, so I decided to take a stab at it with my collaborator and friend, Will Hunt (producer/owner of Spaceway Studios in Ft. Worth). They sent us the scene to write to and we had a blast making a short part of this version- we LOVED it! …They didn't! Ha. And so it goes. We went ahead and finished out the song in my studio just for us, and after many late night jams with friends decided it was too cool to waste- it was going on the next album. That album was the first time I watched something I was working on totally blow up in my face. The suits had a change of heart during a frustrating recording process and I was told that none of the songs I'd been pouring my heart into for a year, in any form, were good enough- time to start over. I was devastated. I was furious. I was determined to take control of the situation and use it to push myself forward. It ended up making me angry enough to write Evanescence's heaviest album- which I love- and we did end up using 3 songs from the original project, but I was still left feeling unsatisfied about what I lovingly refer to as my "broken record." I've believed, mostly alone, in this damaged little handful of unfinished recordings for 5 years- and for the first time, I own them. I plan to finish some, re-do some, and probably keep a couple to myself. Since this one is a cover, I decided to mix it the way I wanted it and put it out alongside the covers I've been doing lately. It feels SO good to finally share it! SWEET RELEASE![1] Vin2.jpg

After the cover song was rejected by the film producers, Amy intended to release it on Evanescence's self-titled album, but the plan was set aside and later it was released as part of her Recover EP in 2015.
