Summary: Five college buddies retreat to the woods for a little R & R and end up getting a horrific lesson in infectious disease in this low-budget shocker. Cabin Fever stars Rider Strong as the geeky Paul, who hopes to settle in around the campfire with his brash buds Jeff (Joey Kern) and Bert (James DeBello), and make the moves on the nubile-but-shy Karen (Jordan Ladd). Unfortunately, a wayward, forest-dwelling vagrant (Arie Verveen) stumbles into their lives, his skin badly desiccated by a mysterious virus. Fearing for their own lives, the quintet decide to do away with the man, with little success: He stumbles away from the campsite and into a nearby stream, where his disease quickly infects the local water supply. It isn't long before the oblivious co-eds get a taste of the man's illness, and in their desperation, each learns that he or she will stop at nothing to survive. Cabin Fever premiered at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival, where it was snapped up by Lions Gate for a fall 2003 release. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

The recipient of an inordinate amount of hype after a bidding war made it one of the hot buys at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival, Eli Roth's quickie horror comedy may be a notch sicker than the average studio shocker -- and righteously so -- but don't mistake its lame stabs at humor for anything resembling actual wit. Cabin Fever seems less like an homage to Night of the Living Dead and The Evil Dead -- as some critics have suggested -- and more like a facsimile of those films' many rip-offs. Although the laughs don't come from the Scream school of self-aware in-jokes, Roth still indulges in facile ironies. He can't zero in on what his script's horrific flesh-eating virus is supposed to represent: Fever's coed campers are sex-obsessed, but the film isn't about hormonal horror; and though the main characters are full of anti-outsider, anti-rural-bumpkin vitriol, the movie shares their classist, myopic point-of view. Of course, subtext wouldn't matter if the film were genuinely scary, but Roth consistently undercuts the suspense with disingenuous splatter and throwaway ethnic gags that would have seemed dated in 1981. As far as 2003 virus pictures go, there's no question Roth's is better than the big-budget debacle Dreamcatcher, but one need only look to Danny Boyle's shot-on-the-cheap offering 28 Days Later for proof of Cabin Fever's inadequacies. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
