Leaned on by lazy storytellers more interested in making a buck than giving their audience something new. Still, the horror genre is one that is steeped in its own histories, constantly referencing, reinventing and reinvigorating its most common thematic elements and strategies.
Zombie Horror – Steven Ramirez, Author
Being a horror fan is often a combination of seeking out that next, new thing while always being drawn back to the sorts of common place conceits that made you fall in love with the genre in the first place. The s brought with it an interesting shift in the horror genre. Torturous, graphic horror rose, while studios invested millions in reinventing many of the supernatural titles that Japan was producing so successfully. As the remake market picked up steam, studios began reinterpreting American titles, bringing a glut of classic properties back to the big screen with new, glossy versions chocked full of hip, young stars.
When all was said and done, upwards of fifty-plus remakes emerged from the horror genre during the oughts and there was a feeling of fatigue amongst the fans. Many of these came from the independent world, adopting a self-referential, meta tone bent on simultaneously celebrating and deconstructing the tropes horror fans knew and loved.
And there I was, a relatively new horror fan, finally several years into my intended conquest of the genre. I had seen a decent amount of films by then the big ones , as I naively used to say and I was feeling the obvious fatigue the mainstream genre was experiencing.
However, it was that gnawing feeling which only served to enhance my excitement when I first laid eyes on the trailer to The Cabin in the Woods But also— it was different. There were office workers. What looked like a SWAT team. A strange, holographic honeycomb… force field.. I went opening weekend and from frame one, I was hooked. I was witnessing a masterclass in genre exploration. The perfect answer to the studio remake.
It reinterprets the tropes of the genre and uses them to create something new in the process. And while a great deal in the film represents this quality, little represents it better than the scene in the facility beneath the cabin when all Hell breaks loose. The full sequence goes on for several minutes, showing the breadth of the creatures on display and the scope of the facility.
And although the components may generally be drawn from the past tropes of the genre, the sum of its parts is unlike anything that had ever been seen before. Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard crafted a conversational script that translates beautifully to a film that feels personalized and lived-in. On the page, the text bounces between the bombastic and the more grounded, human elements that allow the proceedings to speak so effectively to horror fans.
On the screen, Goddard carries the words into a scene where chaos erupts in the pristine, polished hallways in the place underneath the old cabin with terror, humor and a blunt sensibility that mirrors the straight-forward style of the script. Marty slams the door behind him as he crouches down beside Dana. An army of guards awaits them outside the room, but they stop when they hear the elevators activating. A loud DING sounds as the doors slide open.
Terrible creatures emerge from each door, decimating the men before them in an explosively bloody encounter. A second team approaches moments later to find the room a dark, bloody shadow of what it once was, just as a loud DING signifies the next crop of approaching horrors. Marty slams the door behind him, looking stricken and at the end of his rope. The frame moves quickly over to Dana as Marty joins her, crouched beneath a large console. All of this plays out identically to what is scripted. The words on the page seem to mirror the immediacy on the screen, reading like the thoughts of the characters as opposed to the voice of an omniscient narrator.
Marty looks up: the lobby is full of approaching guards — SWAT-looking guys who keep a steady pound of bullets coming. Capria is gruesome, but confusing. The prose is precise, but lacks enough explanation for me to understand what is going on and why for most of the story.
The twist on Red Riding Hood is interesting, especially how she hunts wolves, but also uses zombie wolves to…farm, protect her, I don't know — I got lost in the relationships between all the characters. At one point I thought they were working together, then the next they are eating each other, then the next they are trying to procreate. Maybe it's just me, but I didn't follow the intent of the story, even though it was very creepy. Tuck shows unique ideas about how zombies could decay differently — if they decay at all…which is a strong hook into the story.
Great writing on this one, and had a satisfying ending, though I question the style of saying what someone didn't sense i. Aside from that, the story is still 5 stars.
Mother Sisyphus by Robert Davies is a zombie version of the Myth of Sisyphus, a man whom the gods punished for his deeds in life by making him roll a stone up to the top of a hill, only to have it roll back down every time. This story is about a werezombie that deals with the hope of life only to be met with the suffering of living death. Chilling story that will affect you long after reading. Overall Rating: 4. Nov 18, Oliver rated it it was ok.

I have to say that this one was a little bit of a disappointment. It's not bad, but it's really not as good as the others I'd read. View 1 comment.
