    1. Warning : This isn't really a review, just a whole bunch of movie gifs and such. My love for this movie might just have something to do with me rating this book so high. I mean come on, the movie is so fucking good. How can you not like a movie that has:scary ass monsterskiller unicornsredneck zombies!some sexy dancing1 fucking hot foolFuck that man is beautiful ^_____^Don't mind me drooling.And don't forget evil gods!!Seriously, it feels like this movie was made for ME. It has basically everyth [...]

    2. I watched the film quite a while ago and must say that I don't remember a great deal about it, just that it was weird, wacky, out there and pretty difficult to follow. I had no idea there was a book, so when I found it at the library I followed my faith that the book is always better than the film and decided to borrow it. Now, I really enjoyed this! Straight after I finished the book the film was on TV (weirdI had no idea) so I compared. Others may find it weird as the film and book are pretty [...]

    3. After some initial trepidation I quite enjoyed this book. Trepidation because I found the characters annoying haha. I liked how it kept you guessingwas it a slasher movie type book? Backwoods horror? Zombie horror? Well, I suppose all of the above to some degree but it was a whole lot more, some interesting revelations and twists! The payoff at the end was great. I did watch the first 40 minutes or so of the movie in tandem with reading but now I look forward to watching the rest :)

    4. The best horror novel I've read in forever!I've been looking forward to this movie for way over a year now and when I heard there was a novelization, I knew I just had to read it. And I was not disappointed. At first when I heard about The Cabin in the Woods I thought, yeah, okay. Teens going into the woods and getting hacked up by some killer. I'm sure that's what a lot of people thought. But fuck, everyone was far from the truth!This is one of the most fucked up and crazy books I've read! I th [...]

    5. It's an all-too-familiar story: five friends - the jock, the slut, the nice girl, the brain, and the clown - go for vacation to a cabin in the Middle of Nowhere, and thenwell, you know. Only in this case, you don't. This one's different. Really. No, I can't tell you why. Only that there's much more beneath the surface.I don't normally read movie novelizations but this one's by Tim Lebbon, one of the current greats, and though I've been very excited to see the film I don't know when I'll get to i [...]

    6. The Cabin in the Woods could have been a good book, but the heroine totally jumps the shark at the end. I wasn't expecting that at all, and oh boy, it really ticked me off. Tim Lebbon is a fabulous writer, and this is not the first time I've read his work. I just want to clarify that I don't blame him, the novelization's author, for the problems in this story, which obviously stem from a major screenplay error. That said, I hate reading this far into a book, and suddenly in the last twenty pages [...]

    7. It was a fun read, but there were some things that could have been tweaked. You could tell the author was from the UK, Americans don't usually say things like windscreen and torch. There were some missed opportunities when it came to the POV changes. Like, why would he write Dana watching her friends explore the basement? There should have been quick paragraphs from the differing POVs.I wonder what they would have had to use to summon the vagina dentata woman.

    8. Cabin In the Woods I recently took the time to read the movie novelization of the same tilted film which was written by best selling author Tim Lebbon. Of course as a movie this was advertised as something new and something fresh. The book also takes this approach with little detail of what the book is about on the rear cover. Which is always refreshing to see something want to do something different especially when this item has something to do with the one and only Joss Whedon. This novel sta [...]

    9. Two stars seems really low, but "it was okay" about sums up my feelings on it. It's really just the movie, more or less. I was curious if this would lend any more insight or depth into it. It doesn't. It's not bad, but if you seen the movie you're covered.

    10. This book was scary and was interesting to read at the same time. And also i was excited to read the book because i had saw the movie and it had took me back to when i did see the movie. That's why i said that i was scary. But other then that i will be reading this book again if i have a chance to get the book from the library again.

    11. For other reviews and bookish things go to youmaysayimareader3.75/5"An army of nightmares, huh? Let's get this party started."This book was a reread for me and I've seen the movie more times that I'm comfortable acknowledging so I knew where I was getting into.But I don't know. The first time I read it I gave it five stars on . Ok, maybe it was more like a 4.75, but the thing is that I really liked it.So what happened this time? Maybe my love for the movie clouded my judgement that first time an [...]

    12. A tough book to review: on the one hand, I enjoyed reading it; on the other, I can't think of anyone I'd recommend it to.Writers of novelizations have a tough job: they need to be faithful to the film, not skip too much or add too much that isn't needed, while accepting that there's a limited market for horrow novelizations [I still own a copy of the combined noveliztion of "A Nightmare On Elm Street Parts 4 & 5" - I suspect few others do].The movie of Cabin in the Woods seemed to divide aud [...]

    13. 4 stars out of 5I loved this movie, it is in fact one of my all time favorites. So instead of delving into the sheer genius of the movie, I will stick to the book. I knew the second I saw it at B&N that I had to read it. The novelization is true to the movie as you'd expect, reflecting its success. I was hoping for a closer look at the monsters, but instead was surprised by getting to know each character intimately. The book is brutal. I found myself unnerved by the violence, not because it [...]

    14. While this is a faithful adaptation of the film and provided us with some additional insight into some of the characters, overall it was disappointing. The pacing is much too slow with the result that much of the humor & horror of the screen doesn't translate to the page. It's also (at least the nook edition) riddled with typos and poorly attributed dialogue that threw me right out of the story. The final straw for me was when "Judah" suddenly became "Jonah." There's no excuse for that lack [...]

    15. As it turns out, "The Cabin in the Woods" is not the sort of movie that can benefit from translation into a different medium. The novelization doesn't add anything substantial to the story or characters beyond what the film already established, and much of the visceral horror is lost in Lebbon's prose.I'd much rather see the movie again.

    16. I loved the movie and was looking for the chance to "see" the story again and also maybe get a little further into the characters. There are no big surprises, but there's a bit more character development and a little bit more philosophy. One disappointment is that the cellar scene wasn't explored in any greater detail - I wished I would've learned more about what items linked to what horrors!

    17. I found the movie much better as this bookbut nevertheless a shocker. Love to feel the thrill of the horror trip.

    18. pretty good until the horrible ending. never really explains what the purpose was in detail and then the end is just weird.

    19. Novellizzazione del film omonimo, un horror tradizionale ma completamente fuori dagli schemi, creato da Joss Buffy Whedon e Drew Cloverfield Goddard.Mescolando tracce tipiche dell'horror (la casa nel bosco, il gruppo di amici destinati al massacro, il mostro inarrestabile, la final girl), con richiami e riferimenti a un metatesto mitologico oscuro e citazioni a nomina un mostro c'è il suo clone (così non si infrangono i diritti di nessuno), il film riprende quel filone inaugurato da Scream e l [...]

    20. Spoilers!1/4 - First book of April! Yay! I remember seeing the trailer for this movie and thinking "A Joss Whedon horror movie? I HAVE to see this?" Of course I never got around to it while it was at the cinemas and it has since slipped my mind (I'm going to see if I can find it playing on Foxtel tomorrow morning). 55 pages in and I can definitely hear Whedon's voice in the dialogue; the Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse episodes he wrote were always the funniest with the snappiest one-liners. [...]

    21. Maybe this book is made to read during the movie. That would probably make it better. I just skipped around and didn't really read much. Everyone in this story is pretty annoying and I wanted them to all die by page 4. The first two guys complain too much.

    22. I can relate to the author's style of writing but I didn't like the plot. A horror story with sadistic killings. 5 unsuspecting teenagers on a weekend vacation were actually a sacrifice to the Gods to appease them? I didn't watch the movie but I saw the trailers on YouTube. Not my kind of genre.

    23. Enjoyed the book but did get confused a little in the description of the fighting scenes and how the zombies suddenly appeared in front of them . ie the lake scene around the dock

    24. This review courtesy of topoftheheapreviewsMovie Tie-ins have to do two things. One, they have to keep the reader interested with more than just the plot, and Two, they have to add something that the movie or game counterparts are unable to portray, so does New York Times bestselling author, Tim Lebbon do a good job of this?I started to read this book BEFORE watching the movie. I had always been interested in it, but just never had the time to sit and watch. So this review is going to be based o [...]

    25. SO FUN to read. Lets you stay in the world of the movie for longer. The book loses some of the wit, intelligence and depth from the movie but it is still an amusing and quick read worth doing.Most of the humor is lost but there were a couple of laugh-out-loud moments. The characters seem a little too different vs. how they were portrayed in the movie and some of the points about them, their roles/symbolism, and their true selves are missing. The gaps between scenes in the movie (like riding in t [...]

    26. Five college age friends embark on a sexy booze filled weekend trip to a remote cabin expecting to have the time of their lives. They don’t know it yet, but there’s a team of mysterious officials ready to make sure that weekend holds the last moments of their lives. The night quickly turns from funny to horrific as strange creatures begin attacking the cabin, and the friends find themselves turned into unwilling participants in the game they have no idea they are the pawns of.I’ve never be [...]
