The Cabin in the Woods: A Tribute to Horror

Sort by: Showing 1-50 of 51
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 1705 Average listal rating (1164 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7


Five teenagers head off for a weekend at a secluded cabin in the woods. They arrive to find they are quite isolated with no means of communicating with the outside world. When the cellar door flings itself open, they of course go down to investigate. They find an odd assortment of relics and curios but when one of the women, Dana, reads from a book she awakens a family of deadly zombie killers. There's far more going on however than meets the eye as the five campers are all under observation.

Let's Split Up





Sure, there is a psychopatic killer, or a terrifying ghost and, instead of sticking together and increasing the chances of survival, they decide to split up and let the bad guy get them one by one.

The Cabin in the Woods





Most of the film is based in The Evil Dead, from the isolated cabin in the middle of nowhere, to the book that awakens the creatures. The whole atmosphere is pretty similar.

The Lake




As for the place, is also similar to Crystal Lake, with the dock and the group playing in the water.

Creepy guy in Gas Station

Just like in the 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', group arrives at an isolated gas station when they're met by a really creepy guy; which may be a sign of the horror that is about to come.
