The first movie was a brilliant paranoid body horror gore fest with a wicked sense of humour. Any film that throws a 12 year old hillbilly performing random kung fu moves in slow mo for no apparent reason whatsoever into the mix is always going to be worth watching. The sequel maintained the gore and the wackiness although it perhaps lost the paranoia aspect. While the 3rd film in the mix loses everything that made the first film great and the 2nd one enjoyable. Despite the distracting lab assistant with the ridiculously low cut top the rest of the film is fairly straight laced and lacking in any imagination or flare. It's still watchable and you're likely to reconsider your options for lunch after the goriest of scenes but it lacks any re-watch value. If you do make it to the end it's worth leaving the credits rolling for a short time as there is a clever flashback sequence chronicling the spread of the virus.

Same old stuff. If you have seen the first one then you know what to expect; nothing different here. It is even bloodier than the first two. So gross I could, not watch all of it. Some graphic and disgusting sexual scenes. Vile stuff. Do not recommend.

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)

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. While the annoyingly good-looking teens are being eaten alive by the bug, Sean’s been captured by a scientist who is so evil he speaks with a kind of randomly-changing accent which can be anything from British, through Canadian to American. Plus he seems to have employed two Victoria Secrets models for his lab assistants.

However, it’s not all bad (well, mostly it is). There is some nice gore and make-up. However, that makes up about ten of the ninety minutes. For the rest you’ll probably be asking yourself why these infected people suddenly start behaving like zombies half way through the film (when you’re not dwelling on why this film was ever made in the first place). If you like dark and gory horror (with a helping of tongue in cheek) then watch the first Cabin Fever – ignore anything that shares its name made after the original.

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.
