The school 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 kill the man, who drops dead in the water reservoir. The whole group, except Karen, without knowing where the dead body is, makes a pact of drinking only beer along the week. When Karen drinks tap water and gets the disease, the group starts their journey to hell.
"Cabin Fever" is a 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. It is a very gore story, with potential of cult-movie. 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")
