Various monster items.

Various monster items are seen in the basement of The Cabin, all of them serving as summoning artifacts to the Monsters to be used in The Ritual. The one eventually used by the five college students visiting the Cabin was Patience Buckner's diary, which has a string of Latin phrases that resurrected The Buckner Family as zombies.

Inspiration[edit | edit source]

Monster-summoning artifacts are common in fiction, including books such as the Necronomicon from H. P. Lovecraft's mythos. Many of them are found in basements, cellars, and other hidden compartments of houses. In one of the main influences from The Cabin in the Woods, The Evil Dead, not only the Deadites are brought after reading from a cursed book, but the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis\Naturom Demonto is found in the abandoned cabin's basement.
