Praise For The Cabin in the Woods: The Official Movie Novelization

“In classic Whedonesque style, this movie doesn’t just have fun with the genre, it blows it up. Deconstruction is kid’s stuff—this one delves deep into the psychology behind the universal need to confront evil. The turns it takes are pretty mind-boggling, and the end of the movie is truly demented. You’ll still be laughing, but nervously.” - Marti Noxon, writer and producer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and writer of the 2011 movie Fright Night
