URBAN FANTASY HORROR REVIEW: The Cabin in the Woods: Official Movie Novelisation - Tim Lebbon

Release Date: 15/03/12


The official novelisation of the forthcoming movie Cabin in the Woods, directed by Joss Whedon. The details of the plot are a closely guarded secret, though Joss himself has described it as 'a straight-up, balls-out, really terrifying horror movie', adding, 'it is not just a slasher in the woods. It's a little more complicated than that...'


OK, I haven't seen the film but I know Tim's name so I thought that his adaptation was going to be a decent offering. What unfurls is a fairly visual depiction and one that suits the authors writing style down to the ground. The prose is sharp, the description solid and when added to the authors ability to adapt and create a feeling of horror, it's a title that really did hit the spot for me as a reader.

All in a solid release and one that will do the format justice, especially if you like something to scare that you can put down, just remember to leave a gap before turning off that light.
