Editorial Reviews

Review

“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

this novelization is based on the screenplay for the movie, so it contains some lines that were cut from the final edit of the film. that makes it even more fun. it's really well-done, giving me insights into the characters and what they are thinking. and like the movie, it's a whole lot of fun. crazy crazy ride. i wouldn't want to read this before seeing the film though, unless i was sure i couldn't see it for a long time. but after seeing the film, reading this just brings it all back, fleshes it out even more, makes the joy ride of cabin in the woods last just that much longer. yay. the only thing i don't love is that the print is TINY TINY TINY, so it's hard to read without magnifying glasses. but that means there are a lot of words in the book and that's a good thing. more words means the fun lasts that much longer.

i want joss whedon to read it for an audio book! i would love love love to listen to joss' voice reading this as i go to sleep at night. :-)

This review courtesy of topoftheheapreviews(dot)com

Movie Tie-ins have to do two things. One, they have to keep the reader interested with more than just the plot, and Two, they have to add something that the movie or game counterparts are unable to portray, so does New York Times bestselling author, Tim Lebbon do a good job of this?

I started to read this book BEFORE watching the movie. I had always been interested in it, but just never had the time to sit and watch. So this review is going to be based on what I've read, and then we'll do a compare and contrast.

Tim Lebbon does a good job of setting up the characters here. Each character is very stereotypical of other horror movies, which is fine. The point of this is to kind of poke fun and play into previous horror stereotypes. You get a feel for each person in the first 25 pages or so. You know exactly the role they are going to play, from the jock to the stoner to the introverted female.

The action is well written, the blood and gore are well written, and the comedy (yes, there is a lot of comedy) is well done. The way the comedy is interwoven in the book is really kind of a stark contrast to the horrors that are going on when the characters enter in the cabin that they are going to vacation in. It balances out the chills very well.

You can tell that this book was a movie first. While you get some insight and internal monologues with the characters, you get the very obvious feeling that it's there to just try and make the characters more endearing to the reader. The problem comes in during the gory action sequences. You can't really get good pacing with the action when the characters are having a dialogue with themselves.

Wedon's satire of the horror genre and its archetypes, cliche's, and tropes, hits it on the head and is a fun romp through almost every horror genre. The book nails it, but with a smidge more detail in places. Its nothing that'll change your world view, but is definitely a fun four hour read. Give it a shot.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I purchased this book in paperback with the hope it would shed some more light on the characters' thoughts that we wouldn't otherwise see in the movie as well as contain some extra lines of dialogue or even some deleted scenes. The result is a book that closely follows the screenplay of the film with some extra dialogue here and there that doesn't add up to much. This is basically like reading the screenplay in novel form and there are no surprises nor anything really worth discovering if you've already seen the movie. The insight into the characters' minds isn't particularly interesting and half the time I found myself growing bored with this book. If you've already seen the movie, there really isn't anything worthy of mention here, nothing new to excite you or make you sympathize with the characters more. What you get is page after page of predictable thoughts with descriptive action that follows the events of the film.

But what really put me off were the typos. I expect typos when I purchase a Kindle version, but I have never seen so many errors in an actual paperback before. There were numerous spelling and grammatical errors before I even got 150 pages into the book.

Example: "Then maybe it's something else," she said, pointing at his joint with one hand and taking a sup of beer with the other.

Another example: But he was a guy who, with the aid of mind-enhancing drugs, understood himself completely. And there weren't may people who could say that.

Another: He wondered what saw teeth would feel like when it was tugged murderously across his throat.

Can you spot the spelling and grammar errors?

In short, due to these typos and the overall lack of tension, I gave up reading on page 149 after reading those last two typos.
