Editorial Reviews

As a last hurrah after college, friends Jeff, Karen, Paul, Marcy and Bert embark on a vacation deep into the mountains. With the top down and the music up, they drive to a remote cabin to enjoy their last days of decadence before entering the working world. Then somebody gets sick. Karen’s skin starts to bubble and burn as something grows inside her, tunneling beneath her flesh. As the others debate about how to save her, they look at one another and realize that any one of them could also have it. What began as a struggle against the disease soon turns into a battle against friends, as the fear of contagion drives them to turn on each other.

3.0 out of 5 stars Far from scary but still fun as all get out... October 31, 2007
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
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Karaoke Horror Film... April 8, 2004
The reviewer who described this film as a 'Karaoke performance' was right on the mark. Roth - the director - is merely an imitator, an homage-merchant, and this film's skeletal structure is unashamedly taken directly from films like "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Evil Dead", "The Hills Have Eyes" and, to a lesser extent, "Night Of The Living Dead" and "The Blair Witch Project". And the substance (the meat) of this film is precisely along the surrealistic lines of David Lynch's style of direction - which would explain why also some reviewers may see similarities to the original surrealist film makers, the Italians -- i.e., Bava, Leone, Antonioni, Argento, etc.

However - like Karaoke - this comparison does not make the film fully unentertaining or without its own original qualities and merits. The film is very well done, very well scored, very well choreographed and shot; convincingly gruesome and despairing; and the acting is precisely as it should be - downplayed and reflective of these types of characters, even though NOT ONE is likeable in the least way, and will be the dominant reason you'll wish to stop watching the film. 'Course, concerning the latter, most (not all) horror films produced after the 1960s had leading characters that the audience were not sympathetic to, which makes me think that this aspect of 'Cabin Fever' was also intended by its director.

The only thing that separates this film from the other films it imitates is its antogonist: a flesh-eating disease.
