Porter (Sean Astin) is patient zero in quarantine at a CDC facility on some tropical island. He has a natural immunity to the virus. He is there against his will and will do anything to go back to the Shire. Meanwhile Marcus (Mitch Ryan) is going to marry into money with Kate (Claudette Lali). Marcus' wild brother Josh (Brando Eaton) has devised a "bachelor party" which consists of those two, a friend (Ryan Donowho) and Josh's girlfriend Penny (Jillian Murray), a former conquest of Marcus unknown to Josh. They are to take a large boat and go to a deserted island to drink, smoke, and snorkel.

It isn't rocket science to figure out that they make it to the quarantined island and have virus issues.

Sean Astin took his role seriously. The overall plot was unfortunate. There were gross containment rule violations that didn't make sense. The overall plot was weak as were the characters. The highlight of the film comes at the end with the ugliest cat fight in the history of cinema.

Worth a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, brief nudity (Jillian Murray and not supermodel Lydia Hearst)

This is a low budget horror film which has the feel of a made for TV movie. A bachelor party takes place on a deserted Caribbean style island. Mitch is the groom and takes along his brother, best mate and ex-girlfriend. The ex-girlfriend and one of the buddies soon contract a deadly virus which eats away the skin like a kind of leprosy. Disappointingly, the four characters have nothing interesting to say and the acting is amateurish. Sean Astin, famous as one of the hobbits in The Lord of The Rings franchise, appears here as an asymptomatic carrier of the virus, who is imprisoned at a disease research lab on the island. The virus is not contained by the lab, kills the fish in the surrounding sea, and is soon working its way through the bachelor party. The film suffers from a leaden script and a failure to make the viewer give two hoots about what happens to any of the characters. The usual hackneyed plot devices are used, e.g. no mobile signal is available, etc. The ex-girlfriend is staggeringly dishy, but, unusually for this type of film, manages to maintain her dignity and keep her clothes on (save for a one second flash of a cosmetically enhanced boob). There is no attempt at gallows humour, there is not a single jump off the sofa moment, and any attempt to create fear or tension fails. The film ends up feeling like an episode of Lost with the addition of some fake blood and so so prosthetic make up. Give this movie a wide swerve and watch the first in the trilogy. Alternatively, if you want to see a good horror film set in a tropical paradise, where things go badly wrong for a group of young hedonistic Yanks, try Paradise Lost or The Ruins.

Thought this film was a waste of time and a waste of money to be honest. Not scary at all, boring story. It just felt like a same old rubbish horror I have seen before. Not sure what else to say really, would not recommend to any horror fans as it was just bland and it felt like it was just released for the money.

Cabin Fever 3? Where did it come from? Why is it here? Who made it? All these questions you’ll probably never really figure out by watching the film. The first in the series was released over a decade ago. It was a nice (or rather horrible!) little film about a flesh-eating virus which didn’t need any more done on the subject matter. However, they made a second instalment anyway. This was met with pretty much universal hatred. Therefore, the fact they went as far as to make number three remains a mystery.

Personally, I didn’t mind the second one. Yes, it wasn’t as good as the first, but it was just about watchable. Number three is about five times worse than number two. It’s about four American youngsters (who’s good looks just about make up for any social niceties) who go to a remote island for some reason (are you bothered? You’re only interested in the gore!) and end up falling foul to that good ol’ fashioned killer virus we all know so well.

Cabin Fever 3 is low budget. I have nothing against low budget films. However, if you can’t afford A-list actors or special effects, at least try to make up for it by entertaining characters we can root for and relate to. No such luck here. When it comes to the battle between flesh-eating virus verses man, you too will probably root for the virus.

The only famous face you might recognise is Sean Astin. Mordor and fun with Frodo seems a long way off now and he’s reduced to some sort of extended sub-plot/cameo in this film. At least he’s tried to disguise his appearance with a beard, but you can tell beneath the facial hair he’s ashamed to be here and would rather have flung himself into Mount Doom instead of the One Ring.

A doctor who looks like a cut price Kevin Spacey crossed with Bob Mortimer discovers where Sean Astin has been since the last Lord Of The Rings movie.

It turns out that he is the carrier of the disease that started the whole franchise, and he's the titular character that the Doctor wants to keep and use to find a cure or whatever.

This is the basis of the plot.

Elsewhere, we get your normal group of kids, but this time one of them is getting married into a rich family (the one who looks like a cut price Benedict Cumberbatch) and his friends plan to hold him a stag party on a secluded island.

Which also doubles up as the doctors lab, deep underground.

Guess what happens next.

We watch these movies for the spectacle and the make up, nothing else, but at least this one has a little bit of a story, the second one was just a bunch of kids acting like fools, with no characterisation whatsoever.

While this is more of the same, at least the four main characters have a little bit of a background, so you do kind of connect with them.

Other than that, it's more of the same. Make up is okay on one particular character, but toward the end, they have to go over the top with the gore, and it almost becomes a parody of itself.

If you like the series, it passes the time, if not, stay away.

Nothing special.
