THE CABIN IN THE WOODS - check out these great books from Titan Books

  If you are a fan of THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, which was released this week on DVD and Blu-ray, then you definitely need to check out a couple of books from Titan Books.   Most everyone is familiar with the movie by now.  Most people loved it, a few  (myself included) did not.   But I love horror books and to me, these books  (especially the Official Visual Companion), are even better than the film itself. 

 First off, there is THE CABIN IN THE WOODS:  THE OFFICIAL MOVIE NOVELIZATION by New York Times Bestselling Author, Tim Lebbon.    This is a small, mass-market size paperback that tells you the story of the film in the form of a novel.  The book is 304 pages.

 Next, there is THE CABIN IN THE WOODS:  THE OFFICIAL VISUAL COMPANION.   This is a large size paperback (8 1/2” x 10 7/8”), or what I would call a "coffee-table book".  This book is 176 pages and features  the complete screenplay of the film, interviews with the main cast members, and tons of awesome, full-color photos from the film.  This book also features a great chapter on on the making of the creatures and monsters from the film, including artist sketches and concept art.  I always find it interesting to see how an artist draws and envisions a creature, and then how it actually turns out on film.   You have to admit that the make-up and effects artists on this film are top notch and did an amazing job. This is an awesome book, full of great gory pics for all you gore hounds out there.  Some of the gore scenes were cut away quick in the film, so it is great to get to see them in full color in this book, where you can really get a good look at some of the scenes for as long as you want.

 If you are a fan of THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, you will want to check out these two books for sure.  Heck, even if you are not a fan of the movie, you will still love the Visual Companion book, I sure do!!  Titan Books continues to release some of the best movie related books out there, and they have hit another home run with these great books.
