A sneaky and surprisingly smart horror flick, Cabin Fever sets up all the clichés 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, and so on) 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

4.0 out of 5 stars Gross out 'viral thriller' 3 Oct 2008
This film is for people who don't take movies too seriously, if you are able to have a laugh you could really enjoy this film. I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it before, it's not the goriest or scariest of films but its worth a watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you go down to the woods today..... 23 Jan 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Cabin Fever is the directing debut of Eli Rothi, who also co-writes and co-produces. It stars Rider Strong, Jordan Ladd, James DeBello, Cerina Vincent, Joey Kern & Jeff Hoffman. Plot sees a group of young college graduates rent a cabin out in the woods for party weekend but start to fall victim to a flesh eating virus.

Eli Roth has never been shy in coming forward, happy to be a self publicist and megaphone for hyperbole, he made some bold statements in the run up to the release of Cabin Fever. He had been bemoaning the lack of gore and nastiness in the current crop of horror film's, even venturing that horror should get back to the 80's style of The Evil Dead et al. With that in mind, Cabin Fever is a little disappointing in that it's not as outrageous as expected, but it's a nice touch having a virus as the cause for the horror, even if in reality the structure is cribbed from other more notable back-to-the-woods horror film's. However, where he does score bonus points is that his "fever" is double ended, it's not just the virus as a fever motif at work, but the fever of the group as well, their reactions to the infected and their fear of the disease itself. This allows Roth to slide in some grue and nudity as he dabbles in interesting fates for his characters.

Roth would make good on his "more blood " promise with his follow up to Cabin Fever, Hostel, and then top that with that film's sequel. It seems that Cabin Fever, with its modest budget, was merely the stepping stone that he needed. It made over $30 million in profit Worldwide, proof if ever it was needed, that horror is always a big money earner if done right. Cabin Fever did not live up to initial expectations, but it's still a bloody gooey good time for the discerning horror faithful. 6.5/10

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie 14 July 2011
great actors, good storyline which makes you wonder what it causing everything to happen, creepy locals, typical early 00s horror but what seperates it from others is that its filmed really well and the acting is believable, so is the script(well as muich as a horror script can be)

Seriously buy this movie...JUST DONT BUY THE DAMN SEQUEL

4.0 out of 5 stars PANCAKES! 16 April 2012
By Miranda
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a decent movie, I don't know why it got so many 1 stars, the acting is alright(it could be better) its got a decent script although one scene is particularly weird (PANCAKES) lol! I think the writters should of told us how the man(henry) got the fever instead of silly scene like the pancake bit! I think its an alrite movie! I did watch cabin fever 2 before this one and I have to say this one is much better number 2 is boring and the acting is bad!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not BriIIiant 23 Mar 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Don't believe the hype that surrounds this movie. After all the superb reviews I was dying to see it and immediately brought it. But afterwards I was sadly disappointed. Whilst it was described to be a non-stop crazy gore-fest, it is actually nothing more than a slow downward spiral which builds up to nothing. It isn't really gorey either. There's hardly any bloodshed with just a couple of rotting corpses.
So if your looking for a outrageous gorey horror classic, save your money and buy something else. :-(

This film is essentially following the first 5 rules in the cliche book of horror films.
Rule 1 - always have teen stars
Rule 2 - always be in the middle of nowhere... Read more
