The Cabin at the End of the World is a horror novel by American writer Paul Tremblay.[1] The novel won the Horror Writers Association's Bram Stoker Award for Novel in 2019.[2]

Plot[edit]

A gay couple named Andrew and Eric and their adopted daughter, Wen, are taking a vacation in a secluded cabin in New Hampshire. Their dwelling is invaded by four strangers named Redmond, Leonard, Sabrina, and Adriane who take the family captive and tell them that, to prevent the upcoming apocalypse, one of them must be killed by the others.

Reception[edit]

Author Stephen King wrote that the novel was "thought-provoking and terrifying". [3] Andrew Liptak of The Verge wrote "Good horror stories look at the world around us to draw inspiration as to what could go wrong, and with this book, Tremblay has penned a story that’s not only a nightmare as it plays out on the page, but one that’s grimly reflective of the times that we live in."[4]

Film adaptation[edit]

FilmNation acquired the rights to The Cabin at the End of the World in April 2018, before its publication.[5]
