Storyline

Five teenagers head off for a weekend at a secluded cabin in the woods. They arrive to find they are quite isolated with no means of communicating with the outside world. When the cellar door flings itself open, they of course go down to investigate. They find an odd assortment of relics and curios, but when one of the women, Dana, reads from a book, she awakens a family of deadly zombie killers. However, there's far more going on than meets the eye. Written by garykmcd

Sitterson: But child-proofed how? Gates and stuff?

Sitterson: At all?
Hadley: No. They open, you know, like an inch, then you gotta dig your finger in. I mean, it's a nightmare.

Comedy not horror but ok.
14 June 2020 | by rguest-88724See all my reviews

7 is being generous but I think that's because some of the reviews I read made this out to be a horror masterpiece.

it is complete other end of spectrum and once i readjusted my expectations during the film I started to enjoy.

Totally tounge in cheek and the last 30 minutes was pretty funny. The end scene tone sums up the whole film.
