Watch: Horror Comedy Short 'Cabin Killer' from Director Michael Rich
"Seriously, you didn't lock the door, Adam?! Nice going!" Another horror comedy short with packed with a healthy dose of absurdity. Cabin Killer is a new short film made by filmmaker Michael Rich, and it's an enjoyable 10 minute watch. The film took top honors at Shriekfest, where it won Best Super Short Film, and played at numerous other festivals. Cabin Killer is about a couple that goes on a weekend getaway to work on their relationship, but their cabin isn't exactly what they expected. Starring Chris Orlandi, Gabi Van Horn, and Jose Martinez. Rich wanted to make a film that isn't what we all expect, but still pulls viewers into "the growing absurdity of the story." It's more of a relationship comedy than horror, still quite bloody.
