Storyline

The college friends Paul, Karen, Bert, Marcy and Jeff 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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

During her sex scene with Rider Strong, Eli Roth wanted Cerina Vincent to be completely naked. But Vincent, who had previously played a student who never wore clothes in Not Another Teen Movie (2001), was concerned that over-exposing herself would lead to her being typecast as a 'nude scene chick', and refused to bare her rear in Cabin Fever. The standoff between the director and actress became so intense that Vincent informed Roth that if he truly wanted a naked ass in the scene, he would have to get another actress to play the role of Marcy. Eventually the two hammered out a compromise - Vincent would show one inch of her ass on film, no more, no less. When the scene was set to be filmed, Roth bought along a ruler and literally measured one inch of Vincent's butt crack. Bedsheets were then taped to Vincent's ass at the designated level before the sex scene was shot. Ironically, Vincent later volunteered to bare her breasts in a scene that didn't call for them. During the bathroom scene where she discovers the rashes on her back, the script had her wearing a robe, which she lowered when she turned her back to the mirror. But Vincent thought this scenario was too unrealistic and volunteered to do it topless. See more »

Best movie of T.I.F.F.? I say yes!
19 July 2003 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival (sept 02), and i was thoroughly impressed - of the 42 movies i saw, this was the best (even better than Bubba Ho-Tep, and i am a HUGE Bruce Campell fan). If you like movies like the Evil Dead trilogy, Last House on the Left, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you will love this movie. The acting is surprisingly good for a bunch of nobodies, the story is very well developed (even a few really funny jokes, always good in horror), and the gore is INCREDIBLE! For those of you that miss the extreme gore of the 70s and early 80s, you will not want to miss this film. If you like absurd, black humor, you might also enjoy it a lot. And if you want a change from the standard slasher in the woods as the villain, definitely check this out. I'm predicting this will be the best horror movie of the year.
