Cabin Fever (2002)

The morons from big city arrive to the cabin near the town full of moronic rednecks, there they get flesh eating bacteria from some of the locals. American ultra dumb teenagers, sex, alcohol, gore, US suburbs, country music - it's all there.

I'd describe it as a typical Eli Roth movie. It's pretty dark on the surface and full of gore, but also has completely ridiculous moments which make it a parody of itself. And while the "pancakes" is probably something of a on-set joke which made it to the script, the ending is just...yeah. The vibe of 1000 Maniacs is becoming stronger towards the end and the level of ridiculousness getting higher.

"Not Very Infectious."

Cabin Fever is a bloated corpse filled with various ideas and mistakes.

The premise simply follows a group of college students partaking a vacation within the woodlands to unknowingly have contact with a biological virus. They're far from proper medical attention, or any safety in this regard, but this gives them and the film enough time to risk being greater.

Unfortunately, the film doesn't properly risk enough when it constantly relies on weird humor, disjointed pacing, and middling storytelling with a severe identity crisis. Throughout the film's time introducing characters, and other strange subplots, audiences learn how limited they are by either not appearing enough, being disposable and tedious, or serving nothing special.

However, aside its flaws, it's fairly tolerable when it finally descends into madness and less characters survive the premise's gruesome focus. It's not just an original idea ahead of its time, created at the wrong time, but one of its own kind that unfortunately couldn't become better if a reenactment followed its similar middling direction.

It's a nasty virus film that's not very infectious as an actual viral infection.

Do Yourself a Favor and Watch it.

If you dub yourself a "horror fan" then you have to see this one.

Granted the Director's Cut makes things run smoother than the Theatrical Cut, the film is still solid. From the characters to the plot, everything works.

Joey Kern as Jeff kills it. Giuseppe Andrews as Deputy Winston? Kills it. James DeBello as Burt is great as well, acting in a similar way to his role in "Detroit Rock City". Rider Strong as Paul is probably the weakest out of the actors for me but I can still get behind his performance. Cerina Vincent as Marcy is great and sexy. Jordan Ladd as Karen is the only other weak point I can see. Even the rednecks from the store work.

Everything is how it should be and it's hard for me to try and see anything wrong with it. I just wish it were longer.

The score is amazing and I'm not sure if anyone else noticed where some of them originated from. "Last House on the Left", anyone? Yes, some of the scores are from that 1972 film directed by Wes Craven. Those particular scores are by David A. Hess who stars in "Last House on the Left". It fits perfectly and just adds to the greatness and eeriness of this film. The other sounds and scores throughout the film are great, creepy and just make the movie flow so well.

The vibe, the shots and the scenery in this film are excellent. Cabin Fever is certainly better than a lot of the people on here have made it out to be.

Eli Roth definitely knew what he was doing when he set out to make this film and it was effectively shown. Do yourself a favor and watch it and appreciate it for what it is.
