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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
The bluray was unrated and the dvd was rated R. BLURAY is longer then the dvd as well.
Anyway, I saw the GREEN INFERNO before this movie which is Eli Roth's recent film and tought that the director is really good at dealing with the actors but t as far as the special effect makeup, they don't look so real and scary. (It was more like Peter Jackson's early film like-that's why Peter liked this film so much.)
This movie is even worse. But thinking back, it was just for fun. Maybe it was not meant to be all scary.
The good thing about this film is two main actresses were all very pretty and good at acting. It looked like they are all well trained actresses. Also the three actors are good and have individual colors too. There are some nudity and I think they are there to show that the woman was beautiful before and after she is infected, she becomes so fu** up. That is the reason why the director showed the naked woman having sex with the boyfriend.
I have no doubt for the director in choosing actors. Bacaue all of the actors all lovable.
The ending seems decent and the movie above all was ok to me.
I expected nothing so big,.. so what can I say.
Newcomer writer/director Eli Roth's "Cabin Fever" is a nail-biting horror movie that has audiences alternately covering their eyes in fear during scenes of gory revelation, or guffawing out loud during moments of inspired humor. At a remote cabin in the woods, a group of five young friends have their week long vacation interrupted by a flesh eating bacteria that pits them against one another, and against their secluded surroundings. The film's random and surreal atmosphere is viscerally calculated by the characters' tender flesh as it's corrupted through contaminated drinking water and sexual contact. Indeed, "Cabin Fever" is filled with lovingly realistic gore that's sustained by a revved up plot that makes big cities look safe compared to unseen dangers lurking in the back woods of the countryside.
