Cabin Fever is like your subconscious nightmare. Just the concept of some virus eating your flesh gives you the chills. Being a horror movie buff myself, I am very hypercritical of most horror movies, because most horror movies really aren't that scary anymore. But this movie, just makes you think "what if?" it very supernatural, but you still think "oh my god, that's going to happen to me". There were some scenes that made you think that it was so over the top and campy, but then you realize it really works. Cabin Fever is amusing, and gory fun. I highly recommend <more>
it to those who do not take movies too seriously, but still know how to enjoy a fun horror movie.
I'm sorry but i love this movie! (by anasarcarecords)
This has to be one of the funniest most original horror films that I have ever seen! I own this title and i've seen it about 4 times, and every time i'm like "i forgot how much i love this movie!". However if you like traditional slasher horror movies this might seem kind of lame. I kind of think most horror movies are lame so.....I'm not even a fan of Eli Roth's other movies. I rarely give movies 10 stars and i'm not doing it to boost the overall rating. This movie just has some kind of special quality to it. I would say more but i don't want to do any <more>
spoiling. I hope that people will give this movie a chance and not expect anything in particular from it
this movie is freaking scary and i bet there are people making fun of me but i don't scare easily it is just scary seeing all that gore and to think that there may actually be a virus out there that can do this. Eli Roth makes a great debut performance and i give him 2 thumbs way UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. if u wanna just watch a movie and cant decide just go to the movie store and rent cabin fever and tell me how it is by posting your own comment. something i didn't like was the continuous use of the F word i mean it would have been way more enjoyable watching a great horror movie without <more>
all the cursing i also think thats y everyone says bad things about it is because of the cussing. JUST REMEMBER IT IS AN ENJOYABLE MOVIE. RENT IT!!!!!!!!!!! Heath ***1/2 out of 4
Wildly shocking and amusing debute film for young director Eli Roth is perhaps the best example of current old-school horror around!Five youths retreat to a cabin in rural North Carolina, where they come in contact with a deadly flesh-eating virus!Packed with tension, gore, psychological terror, and dark humor Cabin Fever is a knock-out of a horror film and very clever in its premise. Director/writer Eli Roth shows that he's a genre fan, making references to a number of classic horror films, not to mention using some of David Hess's original songs for Craven's Last House on the <more>
Left 1972 . Roth manages to use slick humor and spine-tingling horror together in a very effective way! The film has many of the horror movie conventions, yet never really falls into the cliché trappings of so many B horror flicks. You simply don't know where the twisting plot of the movie is going at any time. The movie is nicely shot in Mount Airy, NC. Roth tosses in some style in his direction, making some of the moments of dream-like psychological horror nightmarishly good. The musical score is quite good. David Hess's son Jesse Hess does a good cover on his father's old song 'The Road Leads to No Where' for the films closing credits. The makeup FX for this film are outstanding and stomach-churning! There's plenty of blood to be had for the gore-hounds. The cast is great. Rider Strong is good in his role of a teen struggling to survive. Beautiful Jordan Ladd does a heart-felt performance as Strong's love interest. The ever-funny James DeBello is perfect as a jerky friend. Cerina Vincent and Joey Kern also turn in good performances as the other desperate-to-survive youths. Giseppee Andrews does a humorous turn as a local deputy/"party man" and Roth himself appears as a stoner camper. The rest of the cast, most of whom play weird country characters are solid as well.Why so many people have come to dislike this movie is a mystery to me! Many complain about Roth using both horror and off-beat humor, but it works! At any rate, Cabin Fever was one of the most successful horror movies of it's year and is probably one of the most entertaining horror films in many years. Genre fans simply shouldn't miss it.*** 1/2 out of ****
I was lucky enough to see Cabin Fever at a screening in Sydney where there was a Q&A session with director Eli Roth after the viewing.The film itself seemed to have many homages to the classic horror movies of the 70s/80s, which was reassuring. This director knows his film history, and knows how to share that knowledge without ever going overboard.Cabin Fever is relentlessly gory. And considering 'the killer' in this case is a flesh eating virus, it makes the film all the more entertaining and keeps your hands hovering over your eyes- with the occasional peek.There is just enough <more>
humor without going overboard- mainly coming from "the jock", who likes to shoot squirrels, because 'they're gay'.As for the discussion after the film, Eli came across as a down-to-earth person who knows his stuff. He has a passion for classic horror. His feet are firmly planted on the ground. My call is that Eli Roth is going to become a household name.
Sadly maligned as 'average' on its UK release, Cabin Fever is in fact the best horror movie to have come out of Hollywood for years. A lot of people seem to be harping about its over-the-top action and general silliness, apparently not realising that this is the point - Cabin Fever is a black comedy. Filled with great, quirky characters and an interesting streak of sadism, it's an expert subversion of the horror genre.A little like My Little Eye another great recent film , the script-writer delights in killing off every one of the characters and cleverly inverting the standard <more>
kids/rednecks formula: turns out the hicks are more sophisticated than your average, and one kid in particular just loses all semblance of humanity, turning psycho and killing everyone that gets in his way. There's also some truly unpleasant moments of gore and SEMI-SPOILER AHEAD! a neat apocalyptic twist reminiscent of Cronenberg's Rabid.Great film-making.
This film has been unfairly judged! It is in fact a very good 80's style, Splatter, B-movie. It shys away from the self referencing humor plague that Scream started and succeeds in being a very strange splatter/comedy. Several reviews have been posted that say the characters are unlikable and do illogical things through the course of the movie. The characters are very good representations of the youth of the late 90's. The hunting squirrels joke is a perfect example. When asked why he is hunting the squirrels, the character replies, "Cause their gay". How many times have you <more>
heard a teen respond to a question in such a manner? Eli Roth has captured very well the essence of of being a teenager in this very cynical society.The actions the characters take are, in context, very believable. Ask yourself, if you were in a situation where you had to deal with the very likely possibility of becoming infected with a horrible flesh-eating disease, would you be the first to lend a helping hand to the infected? Another thing that has been trashed by many reviews is the strange sense of humor the film has. The pancakes scene in particular. The humor in the film is the strange sort you would more likely find in a Troma film not the sex/toilet variety, though While it's not for everyone, the sense of fun the movie has about itself is more suited to hardcore B-movie fans than mainstream audiences. Eli Roth hearkens back to a time when movies weren't always about psychological thrills,bad twist endings, and pretentious artistic "meanings", when they were about fun. It's a great movie to sit around with some friends and watch. So please, don't judge it so harshly, just because it's a movie to be taken straight with no shocking hidden meanings or twists. Hopefully this film will find it's audience with the cult movie crowd. Highly recommended to anyone with a love of B-Movie cinema.
Very Gore With Potential of Cult-Movie (by claudio_carvalho)
The college friends Paul Rider Strong , Karen Jordan Ladd , Bert James DeBello , Marcy Cerina Vincent and Jeff Joey Kern rent an isolated cabin in the woods to spend a week together. When they arrive, a man contaminated with a weird disease asks for help to them, but they get in panic and burn the man, who falls in the water reservoir and dies. The whole group, except Karen, makes a pact of drinking only beer along the week without knowing where the dead body is. When Karen drinks tap water and gets the disease, the group begins their journey to hell."Cabin Fever" is a <more>
collection of clichés and parts of horror movies "Evil Dead", "Outbreak", "The Night of the Living Dead" – the remake, "Braindead" etc. that works very well. There is lots of gore, impressive special effects and this movie has potential to become cult. In the cover of the Brazilian DVD, there is a reference to Peter Jackson, who seems to have liked this movie too. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Cabana do Inferno" "Cabin of the Hell" Note: on 27 March 2015, I saw this movie again.
An unfairly criticised debut; it really is not that bad (by LoneWolfAndCub)
Eli Roth's debut, Cabin Fever, seems to be hated by the majority on IMDb and many other critics. I, however, found this to be a rather enjoyable little film that just falls short of being great. To sum up this movie: take a bit of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a bit of The Evil Dead, a couple of elements from The Thing and Last House on the Left and you have Cabin Fever. A horror movie about five teenagers going to holiday in a cabin in the woods after college where the nearest town is filled with hicks and everything is slowly getting infected by an unknown virus which starts to turn <more>
everyone against each other. Roth blends horror with a small amount of comedy which suits this type of movie. The five teens are a mixed bunch the dumb guy, the horny couple and the innocent couple . Most of them swear, drink, have wild sex and smoke drugs and because of this may seem annoying and clichéd, on the contrary, Roth has captured the attitude of what teenagers were and still are like. We do all that they do well, not so much drugs.. and to me that makes them more realistic. The locals aren't so realistic and seem to be their for comic relief and body count which isn't a bad thing . There is plenty of gore and plenty of scenes to make you squirm in disgust.The reason I don't give this a really high score is because the pacing seemed jumbled to me. For me, the running time was really short and there were not enough scares throughout. This movie had potential to be more than the final product but I respect what Roth has done and considering it was his first movie it is remarkably good and for that I give it:8/10
