A Lovecraft meta-film, CABIN IN THE WOODS is an absurdist horror tale that shows the world’s existence is dependent upon a continuous human sacrifice to appease the elder gods.
When five college friends arrive at a remote forest cabin for a little vacation, little do they expect the horrors that await them. One by one, the youths fall victim to backwoods zombies, but there is another factor at play. Two scientists are manipulating the ghoulish goings-on, but even as the body count rises, there is yet more at work than meets the eye.
Drink Special: Temple Sticke Altbier
H.P. Lovecraft was born in Providence, RI in 1890, the same year Narragansett Beer was founded just down the road. Though he toiled mostly in obscurity in small-press magazines during his life, today he is universally acclaimed as the “Father of Modern Horror.” Artists from Stephen King, to Neil Gaiman, Metallica, and Guillermo del Toro cite him as a direct influence. The Narragansett Lovecraft Series of collaborations follows the spirit of his “Cthulhu Mythos,” which invited fellow authors to write in the same shared universe of ideas.
