Cabin in the Woods with Rachel Horn


It’s time for some movie fun. It’s a new concept that’s based on the idea of “Dessert Island” and a “Top Ten Films List” combined. Some of my friends from the Twitterverse have been kind enough to take on the challenge of telling us about 5 movies that they would want with them if they were in a Cabin in the Woods under different scenarios. Someone is snowed in while another is confined to the cabin as a toxic gas is leaked around them. Would you want to scare the people you are with or maybe get comfy with your better half with your choice of films?

Staring the series with Rachel Horn, she was given the following scenario, and her choice of movies have quite the variety;

“You have gone to your Cabin in the Woods with the family for the weekend. But, a Bear scare has resulted in everyone being confined to the cabin till further notice. Which 5 films would you want to have with you and why?
_____________________________________________________________________

Top 5 films I would want to watch while trapped in a cabin are in no particular order and are not my favourite films of all time these are films that make me happy and I always enjoy watching them again and again

Sex and the City - I can already hear the boos from the boys, well sex and the city is a great film. What’s not to like? There’s fashion, sex, sexy men. For me it’s all about the fashion. I sometimes pop Sex and the City on before I go out for a night out. There is just something while watching it makes you wanna wear the highest heels possible and look glamorous, don’t know if any girls out there agree but always makes me feel better before I go out. The story ain't bad either. Love the way they handled her getting over the heart ache... felt very real (shush boys).



National Treasure - For me Nic Cage in a fabulous role. I love both the films. I guess it’s trying to be a modern day Indiana jones (which I LOVE). I think the story is awesome and I feel all the characters have great chemistry. I remember going to the cinema thinking I was gonna end up watching a pile of poop but I was gladly very surprised and the story line had me hooked. I think when it came out on DVD I watched it like 20 times and you have gotta love Sean Bean as a baddie.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding - There are soooo many reasons I love this film. This film is so cleverly written and so true to how life is like that. When I lived in turkey which is very similar to Greece the same chaos happened with me. It was like watching what I had gone through but made funny! Having John Corbett in the film is another fab reason. I love it I mean I want to marry this guy! His character Aiden from Sex and the City should so have been the one Carrie ended up with not Big *spits*.



Ghostbusters - One of my fav childhood films. Man I had a huge crush on Dan Aykroyd, please don’t ask me why, my sister still takes the mickey to this day that I had a crush on him. When I was growing up I think I owned every piece of Ghostbusters merchandise. I remember sneaking into my brothers bedroom one day before Christmas and finding loads of Ghostbusters stationary. I was such a happy girl my mum wondered why I was prancing around all happy. Little did she know I was a huge geek as a young child. I also loved the cartoon Ghostbusters but it always bugged me that slimer was a main character lol. Also thought Sigourney Weaver was hot when she was possessed I wanted her makeup!! Fav scene has to be the Stay Puff Marshmallow man. Love his face when he gets zapped.

Overboard - a Goldie Hawn classic she plays both characters so well she’s just a really funny actress. I remember owning it on VHS and wearing the tape out. I watched it that much. It’s a heart-warming story which is always nice to watch. My dad watched it so much so he could see Goldie’s butt!! I love what the kids did to her. I think I was a very cheeky little child and probably would love to have played tricks too.


What did you think of Rachel's choices? Would you have selected something else? Do tell...


Rachel has been a film geek since she can remember. She's slightly obsessed with Lord of the Rings and considers herself to be a 31 year old child. Rachel co- founded #MTOS with Raghav as they both have a passion for films and want to bring the film community together. She have 2 children that mean the world to her, and she is currently fundraising for her autistic son who also has learning difficulties and a rare disorder called Pica. Rachel's main aim is to within the next year become the first Pica charity and help out other families.

  1. Hey Rach! Great write-up. I totally agree with you on National Treasure. I love the two films and can't wait for the third one! They have got so much hatred for no reason that it's ridiculous. I think National Treasure movies are funny and captivating, with likeable characters.

    2. It's still unknown when, but they want to make another sequel.
      Here's the IMDb link http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1197627/
      However, I'm not sure if the project is green lit or will it be...

      Besides, do you recall that the president asked Nic Cage's character to look up some page in that book? I think they might base the sequel around whatever it is on that page :D

  2. I have to agree with Rach and Lesya. Both the National Treasures are fun almost a bit like Goonies for adults. I hope they make a trilogy out of it.

    As for the choices I'm not sure how well the little ones will take on to Sex and the City unless of course it's a late night movie :-)

    Thanks Rachel!!
