The cabin deep in the woods holds a secret. A secret that has the power to rip a family to pieces. When an eleven year old boy stumbles upon it, a tense cat and mouse game begins which reaches closer to home than he ever dared imagine.

'Dark, and brutal family fun. What a fantastic short story by Michael
Cabin Fever is a short horror narrative told through the memories of an elderly man, preparing to face his grave. He tells of how, as a child, his family moved him out to the country, where he found a terrifying little cabin in which he witnessed truly horrific crimes. With such a short story, there's nothing more I can say without spoiling the plot, but I will say that the writing was enjoyable enough and I thought the plot was fine - nothing spectacular, but worth ...more

This short, yet full story I found to be very haunting, horrific and bloody. Seeing something so unimaginable can shatter, even your reality.
The entire story is narrated by an unknown, 83-year-old man who is extremely tired living with the after effects for all, these years. Now that his memories are more focused due to medications. He wants to quickly write down the details, tell you about a story of the loss of innocence and those three spoken words. When a 12-year-old ...more
