Product Description

Product Description

Cabin Fever

Amazon.ca

A sneaky and surprisingly smart horror flick, Cabin Fever sets up all the cliches of its particular subgenre (what might be called the "sexy young people go into the woods" horror movie, featuring hostile redneck locals, dead animals on hooks, cars that suddenly stop running, etc.) and by the end has played a clever twist on every standard element, often to darkly comic effect. What's the plot? Well, five sexy young people (Rider Strong, Jordan Ladd, Joey Kern, Cerina Vincent, and James DeBello) go to an isolated cabin where they contract a nasty bacteria that eats their flesh; this, combined with a bad-tempered dog and a party-loving police deputy (Giuseppe Andrews, giving a particularly funny performance), leads everyone into confusion and bloody chaos. Some of the ironic twists are a little obvious, but most of them effectively subvert your expectations to entertaining effect. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

What can you expect from Cabin Fever? Well let me just remind you that this is about a bunch of teenagers going to a cabin in an isolated area and being struck by a flesh eating virus. Of course the teens drink, have sex and then start to die. What makes Cabin Fever stand out is of course the virus aspect; rather than a lone nut with a chainsaw or hunting knife killing off the teens. It borrows heavily from horror films of the 70's (which seem to be making a come back with TCM 2003 and Wrong Turn). The performances are satisfactory and the humour is piled on heavily which works well as a contrast to all the gore. Don't be expecting too many frights though as it is fairly predictable stuff, especially if you have seen all the classic horror films as this pays homage to them all. The film encounters problems when it adds in surreal (but very funny) moments such as a boy with a mullet suddenly doing some kung-fu for no apparent reason, and a harmonica being swallowed whole. These moments just don't gel with the rest of the film but they do add something original to an otherwise run of the mill enjoyable horror.

This movie is simply the best horror film out there right now. While some reviewers may want cheap scares in their horror films (Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, anyone?), this movie doesn't take any cheap shots to enable viewers to have a good time watching it. While it might not be the scariest, tell me this, WHAT IS SCARY THESE DAYS? The only film that comes to mind is The Ring, and that movie's PG-13. That says a lot right there. Like I was saying, it may not be the scariest (it does have some good moments), but it's definately got the best sense of humor, the kind we saw back in the day and age Eli Roth grew up in. He knows what he likes, and he's giving us exactly that in a stylish way. FOr anyone unsure whether to rent this or not, I suggest that you do, as it is definately a great movie. If you don't like it, like many people that have posted reviews haven't, then I just feel sorry for you. Here we are, giving FREDDY VS. JASON, an absolutely horrific movie with no redeeming value whatsoever, a FOUR POINT ONE [4.1] average rating while Cabin Fever gets an average of 2.7. There's definately something wrong here if an original and witty movie is less respected than a movie made solely to take the money out of young teen pockets and exploit the great movies of '80 and '84.
Anyone thinking that Eli Roth, director and co-writer of this movie, made it to make money is sorely mistaken. This can be seen/heard in the bonus materials, headed off with FIVE, count 'em, FIVE commentary tracks, two of which are great for any aspiring filmmaker like myself. On the director's commentary, Roth spends much of the time talking about film school at NYU, many long-time friends and simply what it takes to get your movie made.

MY HUSBAND AND I JUST BOUGHT THE VHS VERSION OF THIS MOVIE FOR 5 BUCKS AT OUR LOCAL VIDEO STORE. WE ARE BOTH ADULTS AND CONSIDER OURSELVES "MATURE" PEOPLE (WELL MOST OF THE TIME ANYWAY!) AND WE BOTH REALLY LIKED IT. (OK ESPECIALLY ME!) SO YOU'VE GOT 5 HORNY PARTY-HUNGRY COLLEGE KIDS WHO'VE RENTED THIS CABIN IN THE WOODS FOR THE WEEK. WHILE OFF TRYING TO SHOOT SQUIRRELS IN THE WOODS ONE THEM (WHO IS A QUITE A JERK!) RUNS INTO THIS WEIRD OLD GUY WHO HAS A NASTY SKIN DISEASE. OK SO THIS KID IS A LOUSE AND LEAVES THE GUY THERE TO DIE. LATER ON BACK AT THE CABIN OTHERS START SHOWING SIGNS OF THIS "DISEASE". OF COURSE THEY ARE ALL FREAKING OUT NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO AND ARE ALL SCARED TO DEATH. THE QUESTION RUNNING THROUGH EVERYONE'S MIND IS: WHAT IS THIS POTENTIALLY FATAL SKIN DISEASE AND HOW DO WE KEEP FROM GETTING IT? I WILL NOT SAY MUCH MORE ABOUT THE MOVIE EXCEPT THAT THIS IS A VERY UNIQUE, VERY INTENTIONALLY GROSS AND ULTIMATLEY A VERY FUNNY MOVIE. IT MAY NOT BE MUCH MORE THAN THAT BUT IT DOESN'T CLAIM TO BE. IT IS VERY ENTERATINING. I GIVE IT 5 VERY STRONG STARS. P.S. THIS IS A HORROR FLICK THAT IS MEANT! TO BE FUNNY. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE JUST NOT GETTING THAT!!!!!

Not this time. I heard about this movie months before its arrival, and figured it had to be something special. Even the largely critical reviews didn't dissuade me, as we know the bias many mainstream critics feel towards horror films. They just didn't get it, right?
They got it, all right. What a pile of crap. Scary? Of course not, but then I don't really expect to be scared by a movie anymore. Fun gore? Not even much of that. (Can't believe the guy who gave us "Dead Alive" suggested that this movie went over the top in any fashion.) "Rejuvenating the horror realm," as some of that advance buzz would have it? No, not even close...those who suggested that were the ones who didn't get it. This movie doesn't even fare well as a horror homage (a horrage, if you will). It's the most forgettable teen horror film on record, and should have come and gone without a trace.
Good moments? Ok, a couple. Many scenes were so poorly conceived that they provided that cheap, Ed Wood sort of amusement. There were a few chuckles, some maybe even intentional. The character earning the most scathing reviews --the deputy who liked to party -- I actually found the most original part of the movie. He amused me. The naked teen? She was swell. If the sequel is entitled "Wacky Deputy Parties with Naked Teen," I'll be there. Otherwise, we're done.
