Two friends, in desperate need of inspiration for their horror film script, isolate themselves with other writers in a remote retreat in the wood.
Horror-on-Screen Review (by Raoul):
The Cabining is a 2013’s horror comedy by the Kopera Brothers. Made with a low-budget, this film really surprises by its originality and smart scenario.
The film pretty much got it all right, with no noticeable false note. It is really funny from start to end, with a couple of main characters that may seem a little crude at first, but who quickly become really sympathetic. The rest of the characters are also real fun to discover, they all have a unique personality and evolve greatly during the film, each bringing something important to the film.
As for the story, is quite unique too, much above the average storyline found in most horror comedy. It somehow brings the film’s writers within the story itself, resulting in a complex plot with plenty of surprises.
The humor is quite subtle, a great blend of classic comedy and absurd. Maybe the only thing that we, horror lovers, might find disappointing is the absence of actual horror. To be honest, the film really is more of a comedy, horror being just its theme. But that doesn’t really matter, the film is great and very entertaining. Absolute positive recommendation for this great, low-budget, slice of comedy.
