Cabin Fever [Import]
Frequently Bought Together
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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.

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.Read more ›
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.
