Storyline

Todd and Bruce, a hapless screenwriting team, get one last shot at success thanks to Todd's wealthy uncle, Sarge. If they pen a worthy horror script, Sarge will fund the entire project. But there is one condition - the script must be complete in two weeks. With the deadline looming and no fresh ideas, Todd and Bruce head to Shangri-La, a serene artist's retreat, with the hope that the peace and company of fellow artists will inspire greatness... or, failing greatness, at least enough for straight-to-DVD. Shangri-La proves to be anything but serene, as the artists die off one by one, seemingly by accident. Bruce convinces Todd to soak in this morbid atmosphere to help with the writing, but soon those two are fighting for their lives as well. Written by Steve Andrews

21st Century Laurel and Hardy
5 February 2015 | by jackkopera-231-501599See all my reviews

I found The Cabining very entertaining, although I feel it is more of a murder/comedy than horror/comedy. I believe the interaction between the two male stars carries the movie nicely. They work very well together, with Todd being the ultimate straight man and Bruce the comic relief throughout the story. The remainder of the characters all do an excellent job. The story itself does what good screenplays are supposed to do; i.e., present a basic theme and provide solutions to identified issues, all the while maintaining the audience's attention. I felt the balance between horror/mysterious killings and comedic relief is well proportioned leading to an ending which many viewers may not expect. Bottom line: I am not a big fan of horror, but fully enjoyed the film. It retained my interest throughout.
