When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh eating virus consumes them all.
A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone - and that no good deed goes unpunished.
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
Sound mixer John Neff survived the real flesh-eating bacterium, which he contracted in a hospital during minor surgery. It took 13 days of non-stop intensive care medical attention to save his life. Neff maintains the make-up in the film is 100% accurate. See more »
The main water pipe shown connected to the cabin is much wider than what would actually be used to supply a small cabin. Or even a regular-sized house, for that matter. See more »

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")
