Review: Johan Bodell’s The Cabin (A Delightfully Deceptive Suspense Thriller)

November 20, 2018

Relationships take a lot of work, especially when you’re in a long term partnership. Sometimes it’s all hugs and kisses, and other times it’s running from a grandpa masked, ax wielding madman in a secluded cabin. That’s basically Harry and Rose’s story. They decide to go on a retreat to Harry’s family cabin, both to revisit previous memories and to try and rekindle their dying relationship. It turns out someone else has decided to adventure to the property that weekend, and once he’s caught, he makes it crimson clear that he doesn’t want to be arrested for murder. Now, Harry and Rosey’s vacation becomes a cat and mouse game of survival as they try to escape a cunning psychopath with a personal vendetta. How’s that for outside interference? Written by Erik Kammerland, The Cabin stars Christopher Lee Page, Caitlin Crommett, Thomas Hedengran and Erik Kammerland. Find this suspense thriller on DVD and VOD December 4th 2018 courtesy of High Octane Pictures.
