old school horror revived, 20 July 2003
Author: myxamatosis from Canada

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.
