A Spotter’s Guide To “The Cabin In The Woods” Monsters, Part 3

October 22nd, 2012

For the third and final part of my examination of the monsters from the cult horror-comedy The Cabin in the Woods, I’ll run down the miscellaneous menagerie, including some that may exist solely in behind-the-scenes footage.


Japanese Stringy-Haired Ghost

aka Kiko, who is now living in a happy frog.


Horned Gorilla

No, his name isn’t “Buenos Aires.” This is a screengrab of one of the failed international scenarios. So, is the horned gorilla a traditional Argentinian horror?


Giant Spider

Yeah, I’ve got a better picture of the giant spider than this, but I hate spiders so you’ll have to make do.



Poor Amy Acker. Always getting killed.



A scorpion-like, buzzsaw-armed robot. It’s also among the initial batch of monsters at the elevators.


The Suffocators

Name taken from an interview with director Drew Goddard. One appears on the monitors. Photo from the Cabin wiki.


Creepy Girl

You never see her face. She walks slowly down the hall, singing “Hush Little Baby.”



I haven’t spotted him in the film. Photo from the Visual Companion.


Little Guy with a Hatchet

Another mystery, another Visual Companion photo.


The Ancient Ones

What it’s all about. Arguably, they’re us.


And the Rest

Some unidentified humanoids seen in the rampage. Perhaps one of them is the Reaver (from Joss Whedon’s TV series Firefly) that’s alleged to appear?

This cow-skull-headed giant is on the DVD’s behind-the-scenes featurette.

Not pictured: several creatures from the videogame Left 4 Dead appear in the holding cells. They’re holdovers from the abandoned plans to create Cabin-themed downloadable content for the popular horror game.

The special effects artists of The Cabin in the Woods created holding cells in different sizes in order to make insects and costumed actors appear giant. Here are a bunch of creatures that they used to fill out the prison, many of which defy easy categorization. However, you will note knock-offs of The Blob and The Fifty-Foot Woman. Also the Ku Klux Klan.


And that’s all for now, unless someone finds a photo of Kevin! Hope that you found useful this guide to the forthcoming apocalypse!

(Part One!) (Part Two!)
