This month is all about discovering new blogs, meeting new friends, and spreading the word about the launch of my young adult novel, MY SOON-TO-BE SEX LIFE, (Bloomsbury Spark, June 2014) by participating in this mega, 26 posts blog challenge.
Since Charlie, the main character in my novel, is an aspiring screenwriter who has plotted her own devirginization campaign - one that doesn't go as scripted - I thought an appropriate theme for this month would be: an alphabetical romp through the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright scary representations of virginity in film. Warning - be prepared for adult content / strong language and SPOILERS if you follow my posts this month.
Join me over the next 26 days for some swoonworthy and/or cringeworthy cherry popper moments on the big screen. Check out the multitude of amazing A to Z bloggers via the challenge main page, HERE. And don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY at the end of this post!
C is for Cabin in the Woods (2012)
Just when you thought virgin sacrifices were old news, here's a film that proves your V Card can be dangerous to your health. I'm a huge Joss Whedon fan and this spin on horror tropes didn't disappoint.
The premise: "Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods."
Line of note: "They made us choose. They made us choose how we die."
Fav scene: The crazy descent into the Rubix cube-like lower level with all the beasties in their glass cages.
Overall thoughts: This film came out around the same time as the Evil Dead remake and I saw them almost back to back. I'd take Cabin in the Woods over that Hollywood-ized reboot any day.
