Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars the best horror movie in a long time July 7 2004
Format:DVD
why so many people hate this is easy to figure out...they had too many high hopes for the movie,and when it didnt turn out the way they wanted it..they started bashing it.this movie is for the real old school/die hard horror movie fans like me.many people say its not scary,but in a way it is.its scary because there actully is a skin eating virus that actully does this.now tell me whats more scarier???a madeup killer in a ski mask with an ax,or a real life virus that can actully kill u???its not rocket science.the movie is about 5 college students who head to a cabin in the woods for sex,fun,and drinking beer.the first day one of the teens is out hunting and accidently shoots an old hermit with bloody scares on his face.
when he asks for help the teenager gets scared and shoots at the hermit again wounding him.that night we meet grim and his dog dr. mombo.also that night the hermit comes back to the cabin who is now more bloodier with holes in his skin.when the kids refuse to help him,he breaks into their truck,but the kids come out with weapons to scare him off and results with the hermit running off while lit on fire.
this hermit had a virus that eats away your skin and makes u puke loads of blood up.after this our charecters to get infected with the virus,and most decide on how to deal with all the violence surrounding them.
this movie pays homage to many of the 70s and 80s horror movies such as:last house on the left,cujo,the texas chainsaw massacre,night of the living dead,dawn of the dead,the thing,and the evil dead.another thing it brings back from the 70s and 80s is the blood and gore.wow!!!havent seen gore like this for a long time.
contains spoilers for people who havent seen it yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revitalizing the horror movie genre June 10 2004
By Brandon
Format:DVD
While some may view Eli Roth's Cabin Fever as "just another teen horror flick", the film is actually quite refreshing. Never since the 1995 satyrical horror movie "Scream" have I been so impressed by a movie of this kind. The plot entails a group of college students who rent a cain in the woods. The vacation seems to be going accordingly until Burt, played by James DeBello comes across a man with a horrid skin infection, and subsequently shoots him with a B.B. gun. Instead of trying to help the man, the main characters panic and end up killing him. The movie then becomes a question of who is infected, how the infection travels, and what to do with those who becoming infected (i.e. inhumanely locking them in the shed). Cabin Fever's plot succeeds, with the perfect combination of horror, gore, and outrageous humor.
More importantly, the film succeeds where most of its kind fails. Whereas most horror movies of this generation display characters that quickly die off, without the viewer ever developing a notion of their true colors, Cabin Fever successfully develops its characters. For example, Jeff, played by Joey Kern comes off as arrogant and selfish; (not to spoil the ending for those who haven't seen it). Therefore when he meets his unfortunate fate, it's almost a celebrated occasion by the viewer. Not to mention Rider Strong's role, (previously of the hit show "Boy Meets World"), which I found rather refreshing, as he embarks on a brief but gory killing spree. Perhaps my favorite character in the film is Burt, played by James DeBello, from "Detroit Rock City". DeBello brings the majority of the humor in "Cabin Fever" with his goofy antics and rediculous stories about masterbation.

Andrews has a funny bit role as a Fun Loving Partygoer Police Deputy in the film. Also DeBello was in Detroit Rock City also. This film was shot under $2 Million and it`s looks great, thanks to Scott Kevan`s Excellent Cinematography.
