An offbeat horror tale about a group of five college friends on vacation at a remote mountain cabin when one contracts a flesh-eating virus. As it spreads among the friends, their true feelings and personalities emerge as they struggle to survive the virus and each other. Written by
Randy Pearlstein, who receives a co-writing credit, was roommates with Eli Roth in film school. Roth had already written a rough draft of the script and enlisted Pearlstein's help in fleshing out the script into feature length. Pearlstein was not present during the filming and did no further rewrites of the script. See more »
In the scene where Marcy is attacked by the dog, the camera shows her trying to get into the shed, and then cuts to the dog. When the camera shows her being taken down by the dog, she is wearing blue jeans. This is because the dog used was so vicious, the actors could not be around it, so a guy had to step in with protective layering on his arm to be attacked. See more »

great horror genre piece...homage to the great 70's classics!
i really do not understand what people are talking about in the other reviews. i feel like this is a continuing pattern on here. don't intelligent people watch movies or is it because this is a horror film and the viewers are incompetent? anyone who loves good horror should appreciate this! i wont go ahead and mention the storyline except for that it comes off as just another cheese ball teens in the woods getting slaughtered, at least thats what i thought when it came out and thats exactly the reason i originally avoided it. after a couple of years decided to give it a shot and was very pleased. every ingredient for a well made horror is here and more. if you want to look at this "cabin fever" as a social issue, its also possible. human nature is examined at its best here. yes, it has its flaws, this is a "horror movie and not an academy award winner dramatic and audiences should start viewing movies based on what the purpose is. every movie has a flavor and you wouldn't go compare coffee with wine would you, even though both are beverages!!! also, this film is much better than most in the genre including i madman, Axe, and even Tobe Hooper's eaten alive. most reviewers are not avid film goers and think they know all, such as those bush supporter who think they understand history! if they do understand like they say, they should feel guilty...another thing, reviewers have to stop comparing movies that are classics by anyones standards, TODAY...that is, if it wasn't for people like me and others who enjoy these, Texas chainsaw massacre, night of the living dead, the old Vincent price, Boris Karloff's, Christopher lee, and corman productions would not be liked mainstream...again, this is and will be CLASSIC...known for the best attempt for bringing back 70's horror. Mainstream people always want to butt in on things they don't understand, such as good horror...and to end this for all those Rex reed's out there, film theory is my thing and movies are a passion, don't stick your ignorant nose where it doesn't belong! RENT THIS MOVIE...especially if you enjoyed old Wes craven, Tobe hooper, George Romero and many others...this is a great modern approach to the genre.
