How can so much fun go so horribly wrong so many times?
There’s nothing better than a remote cabin in the woods with no phone signal to send a bunch of fun loving young adults too. You know they’re going to have fun. And you know it’s going to go horribly wrong.
The Cabin in the Woods
Now, I haven’t seen this version yet, but I loved the original. This is the remake of Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever which is awesome and one of my frequently re-watched films.
Five friends rent a cabin in the woods where they become the victims of a flesh eating virus. Of course, that’s not enough of a threat on it’s own. So some homicidal locals thrown into the mix add extra excitement (?).
Tucker & Dale Vs Evil
The Evil Dead
Who doesn’t love The Evil Dead? And the new series? In the original movie, Ash takes a trip away with friends to a cabin in the woods. They discover a very bad book which unleashes evil spirits – the rest is legendary.
Whilst the group in this movie don’t make it to their intended destination they do end up in a cabin in the woods. The cabin belongs to a family of inbred mountain men determined to make use of the fresh meat intruding in their home.
I Spit on Your Grave
Whilst not set in only one cabin this movie has only one guest – and she is trying to write her next book. After being subjected to a night of torture and abuse she takes her revenge. And it’s brutal and bloody.
What movies have you seen set almost entirely in a cabin in the woods? Let me know in the comments or on twitter 🙂
