Nothing like a group of college kids unable to enjoy a nice party weekend in the wilderness without being attacked/killed.
Top Five Campfire Films
5.) Cabin Fever (2002)
Cabin Fever is a classic film by Eli Roth that will make you just supply your own bottle water when camping.
Some gory scenes from this film.. ick!
4.) Cabin in the Woods (2012)
Ahh yes! I actually enjoyed this film quite a bit!
This is also a traditional campfire horror film where college kids head off to a cabin over the weekend to let off some steam. and there is production crew nearby preparing to torture the kids with a collection of nightmares.
3.) Tucker and Dale Vs Evil (2010)
Tucker and Dale are attempting to fix up their cabin; they saved a college girl from drowning but her clueless friends think our innocent hillbillies are up to something more sinister; However, it’s really a BIG MISUNDERSTANDING. :)
The college kids end up accidentally killing themselves..
2.) Evil Dead (2013) & (1981)
Staying at a cabin where the previous owners left a book covered in human flesh that when reading the book out loud, you have summoned evil spirits.
This film is a cult classic and still to this day it is a heavy fan favorite.
1.) Friday the 13th (1980)
Is it just me, but anytime I go camping.. I ALWAYS THINK OF JASON!
If you ever find yourself in a Campfire Horror scenario. There are two major rules to remember…
1.) Quit Drinking, Smoking Pot and Having Sex.
2.) Bring your own reading material. DO NOT read thick books that is covered with flesh that you found in the basement. If you do read it, out of curiosity: Do not read it out loud.
Did any of these films land in your Top Five for Campfire Horror list?!
One of my favorite movies this year was The Cabin In The Woods. I normally don’t enjoy horror movies- but this one was different. This movie turned horror on it’s head and spun it around in a fun and unexpected way. The movie is (finally!) out on DVD and Bluray today. So in celebration of this epic film, I created this piece of art, combining the movie with one of my favorite childhood book series- Choose Your Own Adventure! It seems fitting, don’t you think? Please let me know your thoughts and leave a comment if you are so inclined. I’m looking into printing this up as a poster/print in the near future- so let me know if you’re interested and I’ll email you the details when I get them nailed down. Cheers!
