SYNOPSIS

On the surface, The Haunting of Cabin Green is a modern Gothic horror/psychological thriller story. At its core, though, it’s emblematic of the destructive nature of grief.
 
This isn’t a story that relies on some of the genre’s most tired tropes. There are no teenagers vacationing at a cabin who battle zombies, nor do the ghosts spend all their time opening cupboards or yanking blankets off of people. The main character, Ben, also doesn’t make the ill-advised decision to stay in the cabin because of financial concerns. 
 
Instead, Ben is psychologically scarred by the death of his fiancée, Kyra, making him susceptible to emotional manipulation and hallucinations. Jigsaw puzzles come to life, human remains show up in his bed, and the cabin catches on fire; or does it? He must determine whether the ghosts are real or simply a manifestation of his inner turmoil. Further complicating matters is a family history of mental illness that makes him doubt everything he thinks he knows.
