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. There’s far more going on however than meets the eye as the five campers are all under observation. —IMDb
I personally thought it was brilliant. Loved the parody of all the classic horror movies that are released today. The group of kids turning into stereotypically cast actors to fit a familiar role. The fourth wall breaking of the workers talking to us, the audience. The mythological creatures and just the vastness of how it all played out was fun, enjoyable, gory, and at parts tense. Very fun! I'm glad I watched it.
