Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

Cabin Fever is everything you could possibly want from the co-ed/camping/horror genre. And like the film itself, the DVD is a nice balance of comedy, camp, and gore, and filled with extras. The half-hour making-of documentary is fairly informative and witty, particularly for a lower-budgeted horror film. One of the highlights is seeing the great Angelo Badalamenti's (of David Lynch fame!) enthusiasm about his musical score. However, if you really want an insiders' view of the film, check out one of the four available commentaries (from the director, the "guys," the "girls," and the filmmakers). Also included are three shorts by director Eli Roth featuring his crass, clay animation series The Rotten Fruit. "Pancakes!" is a grainy, music video of a woman doing Kung Fu to "Electric Six" singing "Gay Bar." Not really sure where the flapjacks fit in, but it is amusing. "Chick-Vision," while sounding enticing, is merely another way to describe child blocked viewing. In closing, be sure to check out the G-rated "family version" of Cabin Fever: appropriately 1 minute and 13 seconds in length. --Rob Bracco

3.0 out of 5 stars Far from scary but still fun as all get out... October 31, 2007
Format:DVD
Inspired by the recent review of a fellow Ammy friend I decided to take another look at this quote unquote horror movie. `Cabin Fever' is not a scary movie. It's camp. But when you watch it for the funny film that it really is then you can start to appreciate the movie. It's not a spoof either though, and one must realize that. This is not a movie that makes fun of the horror genre ala `Scary Movie' or `Shaun of the Dead' but is one that embellishes unrealistic situations to a point where it comes off funny instead of dreadful. Yes, director Eli Roth inserted moments of purposeful humor (like the much discussed `Pancakes' boy) but the film is really a quote unquote serious attempt at horror with comedic undercurrents that tend to take over.

The plot is nothing new to the world of horror. It's somewhat like `Deliverance' with a skin virus. You have five friends who decide to retreat to a cabin in the woods for some fun and relaxation only to find anything but. Instead they are greeted by some strange residents to the area and then, later on, by a man dying of some flesh eating virus that he in the process of pleading for help passes along to the five friends. As they slowly die alone in the cabin with no one willing to help them they turn on one another as the bleakness of their situation starts to set in. This could have gone the route of the recent `Bug' and become a more psychological film that delved into the insanity of desperation but instead it decided to go a tad (or more than a tad) overboard. The cast of characters, especially those the five friends encounter, are so clichéd and stereotypical it's unbelievable, but that's all in good fun.

The acting is decent, but then again the film really doesn't call for the actors to act.

4.0 out of 5 stars Redefining the genre? No, but a treat for horror buffs. January 28, 2004
By skytwo
Format:DVD
One of the things that makes Cabin Fever a genuinely fun outing for horror fans is the cast and crew's obvious enthusiasm for what they're doing. Even without viewing the entertaining (if rather short on substance) "Making of" featurette, you can easily tell that the film was a labor of love with a game cast. While the extras don't shed much light on the film's progress from unsellable script to most-hyped horror film of 2003-- which would undoubtedly have made for a fascinating story-- the movie is (almost) enough of a delight to make up for it.
Cabin Fever takes pretty much every convention of "classic" drive-in horror films of the 70's, and manages to make them look new again. Curmudgeons may say that it's nothing more than a Scream-esque parody of horror movie chestnuts, but the approach is really quite different. Instead of self-conscious winks to the audience, the walking cliches of Cabin Fever seem to enjoy playing their roles to the hilt, with performances that are as much tribute as spoof. One of the most entertaining aspects of the film is that the lead characters, each a counterpart of a 70's-horror staple, are almost uniformly unlikable. Instead of counting on us to hope that the smug hipster, the ice queen, and the obnoxious jock manage to escape the killer's clutches, we can finally enjoy seeing them get what we thought they deserved all along. I mean, did anyone REALLY identify with any of those too-good-to-be-true high school superstars?
Cabin Fever won't have you leaving the nightlight on, although it does boast some solid shocks. It might be a bit of a letdown for fans of gore, but for my part I'm thankful that the more intensely violent moments were off-camera. Otherwise it might have been too dificult to watch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage January 13, 2005
Format:DVD
Worse than wasting my money at the theater, worse than wasting my money on a rental, I wasted my money by buying this crappy movie on DVD. This movie brings absolutely nothing to the campy/slasher/horror genre that's original, and its "respectful" nods to other successful movies in the genre fall flat and are disgraceful. This is another example of why you shouldn't listen to the mainstream industry critics. They praised this movie and it came with above average reviews. Honestly I haven't been this disgusted since the movie "Ghost Ship".

Anyway, if you haven't figured it out yet. This movie is about five teenage/college aged kids who go on a camping trip to a secluded cabin in some redneck infested woods. By the way, I feel that true rednecks out the there have a legimate shot at a lucrative lawsuit for the way this movie portrays them. Continuing, a hermit stumbles into the camp with a gross skin/lung disease and all hell brakes loose after that. Nothing and I mean nothing in this movie is belivable, coherant or entertaining. The characters freakout and panic to the point of ridiculousness. In any horror movie the characters are expected to make a dumb mistake or two. Mistakes that you see coming and you wish you could slap some sense into character, but this movie would leave a nub on the end of your arm if you tried to keep up with the mistakes.

The only thing that I could remotely praise about this movie is the acting job by the main characters which wasn't too bad.
