Cabin in the Woods by Tim Lebbon
Hey there Horror aficionados! I am ecstatic to bring you Cabin in the Woods by Tim Lebbon. You are probably wondering if this is the same Cabin in the Woods that just released in theaters. Well, yes it is! I saw the movie on Sunday and dove right into the movie novelization!
Now I know what you are thinking. Not another story about a group of teens that go to a cabin in the middle of nowhere and one by one get killed. Well, actually this is exactly that...but with a twist! Take the very beginning of Cabin in the Woods for instance. Cabin in the Woods opens with two elderly guys talking about other countries failing to get the job done. Then we cut to five college students packing up and heading to the cabin. As these youngsters leave we see a group of figures on the roof reporting the students whereabouts.
After an eerie run in with an old gas station attendant, our group of five arrive at the cabin. They all take on typical personalities that we've all seen in horror movies. It's only a matter of time before a game of "truth, dare or lecture" gets our story really in motion.
I don't want to give too much away about Cabin in the Woods so I won't share anymore of the plot with you. Cabin in the Woods takes on a classic horror storyline and reinvents into something completely different. The book and the movie were a refreshing change to what I normally read and watch. I sincerely hope that you all will take the time to watch the movie and read the novelization of Cabin in the Woods. I really do think you will love it as much as I do.
