This review is from: The Cabin (Kindle Edition)
The Cabin is another gripping horror novella by Matt Shaw in which he scares the s**t out of you in the old fashioned way, there’s no gore, no extreme violence this is pure atmosphere and psychological horror that prays on some of your inner most fears.
Craig, his wife Susan and their two daughters set out for a weekend away at his Cabin, once his Fathers, he’s not been there for a long time and they’re hoping for a peaceful break.
Craig is entertaining with a dry, sarcastic humour, his daughters Ava, at the age where ‘Dad are we there yet’ is just starting to grate on his nerves and Jamie the ever sullen teenager in a permanent bad mood. Along with his wife who can seemingly sleep through anything but still provide a tongue sharp enough to quell any outburst or argument approach the trip with mixed feelings and it’s not long before disaster strikes.
Craig is forced into staying the night at the dilapidated cabin on his own, which to add to the atmosphere is a short walk from the former Vermont Asylum, built by the patients in the late 1800’s and long since abandoned. What follows is a terrifying night of panic and distress concluding in the usual WTF, jaw dropping ending.
