The Cabining (2013)

Todd and Bruce head out to a cabin in the woods in the hopes of finding the inspiration for their newest Horror movie, but unfortunately for them, it comes in the form of a sadistic serial killer who is looking to turn their screenplay into a terrifying reality! Deconstructionist Horror comes home once more in THE CABINING, another clever satire on the standards of the genre that packs in more than its fair share of laughs along the way. Mike and Steve Kopera bring us an entertaining and understated comedy filled with enjoyable characters and many bloody murders. Like in TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL, the characters in THE CABINING stand aloof as the horror unfolds around them. Mike stars alongside Bo Keister as the two failing screenwriters who share an instant rapport on screen. Luce Rains delivers another hilarious performance as Jasper, their deranged housemate. The Koperas do a fine job keeping us in suspense leading up to the inevitable plot twist, which they pull off with a great deal of success. THE CABINING provides plenty of good fun for Slasher fans, and stands up against the more mainstream efforts like THE CABIN IN THE WOODS.

Rating: 7/10.
