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.
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

This film marks the second time James DeBello and Giuseppe Andrews were in a movie together. The first was the 1999 film Detroit Rock City (1999). See more »
When Marcy is running from the vicious dog, you can see that she is wearing something white within the sleeves of her robe. She has just left the shower in a panic, so it is unlikely she would've put anything on before the robe. See more »

the horror scene in the U.S. has been disappointing for the last couple decades, but Eli Roth is trying to change that. Cabin Fever brings us back to how horror movies used to be and it plays as a sort of homage to old school horror. You have the blood, the sex, the naked hot chick, the dumb jock, the cool guy, the awkward dorky guy, his love interest who doesn't notice his obvious interest, and the always popular rednecks with shotguns out to get you in the woods. With all these classic elements present, the movie still manages to put a new spin on things by introducing a flesh-eating virus into the story as well. This is a good movie and hopefully a start to having horror movies made the way they should be.
