THE CABINING was named one of the 10 Horror Comedies a True Fan MUST See!

A perfect Saturday night movie

Hearty laughs and clever twists

THE CABINING is what indie cinema is all about

As maliciously entertaining as it is very, very funny

Suprises by its originality and smart scenario

Ass-kicking on the most enlightening of scales

Consistently entertaining

the most detailed and well written slasher that I have probably ever seen

The Cabining is a must see.
