Cabin in the Woods Movies

by benegan | created - 05 Feb 2018 | updated - 1 month ago | Public

All of these movies have friends or a couple staying at a secluded cabin in the woods to relax and have a good time, only for things to turn out to be not-so-good-a-time. I was surprised to find out how many movies fit the genre, there are some pretty unique ideas.
