Storyline

An art teacher spends his nights painting. One night he hears noises in the loft over his. Investigating, he discovers an interloper, who claims he is going to rent the area despite the landlord's earlier assurances that he would not rent the area. Shortly after this incident, the landlord is found murdered. The investigation turns towards a drunken evictee who was seen arguing with the landlord. However, his unwanted neighbor appears threatening and malevolent. Plagued by nightmares, the artist also starts acting irrationally and becomes a suspect.

Frightening and affecting
18 April 2001 | by (NYC, NY) – See all my reviews

Fever is an unusual movie for today's moviegoers, slow, disguieting and legitimately frightening. Henry Thomas plays a neurotic urban artist, barely eking out a living and refusing the help of friends and family. A murder in his squalid apartment building knocks the artist off kilter and begins an increasingly paranoid and hallucinatory chain of events. Thomas's performance is an amazing balance of subtlety and intensity. He has the difficult task of appearing in almost every frame and we never grow tired of his presence. Instead the audience is pulled into the mind of this suffering character and forced to confront his demons and dilemmas. The film does not set out to ask "whodunnit", rather to make us experience the singular nightmare of a struggling and sensitive young man alone in the modern world.
